Is it another food blog?!

Since I clearly put the cart before the horse (as I am wont to do when I get excited about something) when creating this blog, its mission statement is still under construction. Without a doubt there will be a focus on food. This is because I am passionate about food. I love to grow it, harvest it, process it, cook it, bake it, smell it, touch it, savor it, look at it, photograph it, indulge in it, share it, and in all these ways, and more, am nourished by it.

So yes, I guess at least for starters, it is yet another food blog. But I'm guessing it will be one of those "all over the map" types with joyous food related bits scattered throughout. And who is my audience? Perhaps there will be none. In a way it is an extremely personal project, a journal of sorts, that I'm hoping will help clarify my life's future direction for me. In the beginning there will be a lot of dusting off my brain as I haven't had occasion to write much in the last ~6 years. I am brand new to blogging and have much to learn: how to write a good post, post good photos, design a pleasing site.....etc. Off now to make honey ice cream with my son. Had roasted caulifower for lunch. Will try posting photos.

Roasted until they began to carmalize
If you haven't had cauliflower like this
you are in for a treat!
Method: Place cauliflower in a single layer on oiled baking sheet, slather with your favorite oil, sprinkle with your favorite salt and pepper and roast at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes till nicely browned. Of course, all kinds of veggies are delectable this way. A nice discovery this year was roasting fresh garden radishes in this same way, including the radish greens which became crunchy and munchable. Our family are not huge raw radish fans. My son, 5, grows them mostly to supply a favorite non-gardening, radish-loving neighbor. But roasted they were completely transformed and devoured happily.


  1. Looks like a nice lunch. What's for dinner?

  2. No kidding!? I'm going to plant some radishes!

  3. Roasted Cauliflower is one of my favorites!! So nice to see your blog!
