About the Food
I’ve done the whole “about me” crap so many times on so many different blogs and social media pages that I think I might actually tear my hair out if I have to do it again. So I’m going to scrap that whole thing–after all, you’ll learn enough about me from reading the blog, n’est-ce pas?–and just talk about the food you’ll find here.
The original recipes I will post here will very probably be from one of the following categories:
- Ice cream or other frozen desserts. I love ice cream, and I make a lot of it.
- Foods that feature lots of vegetables, because I like vegetables. I do eat meat. But I love vegetables.
- Quirky DIY stuff. I like to make things from scratch and I often do.
- Anything that can be stuffed into a taco or eaten with hot sauce.
- Indulgent, calorie-rich foods, because the only diet I’m on is Margaret Cho’s fuck it diet.
- Quick knock-offs of foreign foods that I don’t have the knowledge to make from scratch.
- Things that taste good.
What you won’t find on this blog, probably:
- Fussy, froofy foods. Not me. Nope.
- Inventive baked goods. I can bake if I have a recipe, but I don’t develop baking recipes–I may review some, though, so look out for that.
- Recipes that require fancy or complex tools. Or expensive tools. I got my food processor at the thrift store. (My baby is my Kitchen Aid mixer, but that’s the only tool I have that cost me over $20.)
- “Low-carb,” “low-fat,” “diet,” or anything that isn’t real got-dang food. I love healthy food (see above love for vegetables), but I don’t buy into all of this fad dieting nonsense. It’s not just unhealthy for one’s body, it’s terrible on the psyche.
- Anything based on convenience or processed food. I had a friend who was starting couponing; talking about it with her, I realized that we eat almost no processed food. (Excepting condiments, although I do make a mean homemade hot sauce.) The last time I ate food out of a can that wasn’t an ingredient, like beans or tuna, I thought it was the grossest thing I ever ate.
I hope that this is a decent primer for what I’m all about in my kitchen. As I start adding recipes, I think the picture will become clearer. If not, you can at least eat some delicious food.
