After years of saying "not me" to Facebook , I succumbed this past summer and became one of its many millions of users. This was cool as I found myself not only easily communicating with people I saw regularly anyway, but also reconnecting with people from a long ago past. I even found old friends from Scotland from when I had been an exchange student there, people I otherwise would have not easily been able to find after this many years. Then I discovered that I could share my love of cooking through a "food album" of sorts, where I could put not only photos, but share my thoughts about them, and also enjoy the kind comments of friends. Then some dear friends started requesting recipes to go with the photos and I was on a roll.
Alas, just a few short months later I find myself dissatisfied- it seems every time I add a new photo Facebook has lost an older one- and posting a recipe requires a separate "note." I lamented to my husband (as well as on Facebook) about my frustration and decided I wanted to do a food blog instead. I queried my husband Ben, "How do I blog?" and "Where do I start?" His answer-"Look it up." So here I am. Please be patient as I learn my way and enjoy the journey with me.
