...to jot down ideas and thoughts about cooking.
I'm not a professional, just a home cook who likes to try new things and experiment here and there. This may not be the most creative blog, but I hope someone out there will enjoy it and maybe even find it fun and informative. I tend to be practical and simple in my application...when I go somewhere to read or find information, I want it to be easy on the eyes and well-organized, not fussy or hard to read.
Currently I work part time at the elementary school my son attends. It's not my dream job, but it brings in a little money and I can still be home with my boys when they are off from school.
I'd love to do something food-related, but find the whole thought a bit intimidating. Every month I seem to have a new idea. First I thought I might try to market my marinara sauce that was published in the reader section of Cooking Light. Then I thought about opening a food store that would cater to the busy mom who still wanted to put something homemade and wholesome on the table. I also considered trying to be a personal chef.
The problem is, I want to do something on my terms, on my time, my way and without a lot of financial risk. None of those ideas fit. Being a personal chef allows me to do something without a lot of overhead, but I'd have to cook what OTHER people want to eat, not what I want to make.
The idea du jour is to try offering cooking classes. I have lots of ideas for fun themes, the problem would be to find interest. I'm not sure what kind of business I can drum up in this tiny little rural town. However, there is the option to offer classes in nearby towns as well.
In the meantime, I figured I can record thoughts. At least here I can talk about what I want to talk about - people can read it or not read it - and there's no overhead or financial risk.
