I have worked in and around the online world for almost 30 years now, having an IT background that begins before IT was an acronym and before there was even an “offline” that you could turn on!  I have worked with clients to design their websites and manage their eCommerce businesses. I have designed and maintained websites & electronic newsletters for my own business.  I even held the title of “Webmaster” for a short period of time.

But Blogging???  This is a whole new world.

First off, why would I want to sit and share my thoughts, recipes, or ideas with anyone aside from close friends and family?  I am generally a private person, and aside from my journal, my husband, and a few close friends, what I write is my own.

More importantly, why would anyone else want to sit and read this stuff?  Assuming that I can find time to write a few paragraphs each week, who out there is not leading a busy life of their own?  What type of person is going to take time out of their hectic schedules to see what is on my mind?  And even for those of you who are sitting with your smart phones while waiting in the doctors office right now, there are so many other great things to read!  Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, newspapers, online magazines, and books just as a start!  Why the heck would anyone want to read a blog? Especially one of mine??!

Having said all that, I love thinking, reading, and writing about anything related to food and drink.  I read cookbooks for fun, plan holidays around culinary opportunities, take my own knives with me on vacation, and love introducing people to new foods, restaurants, and experiences.  I will attempt to do that here, if only occasionally.

So please do connect with me.  Let me know what you would like to hear about and what you would like to see more of on this site.  And I in return will do my best to write regularly and try to keep things interesting and fresh.
