Feeding My Enthusiasms

After about a month of visiting a bunch of great food blogs, I decided to join the fun.

Food is one of my earliest enthusiasms. Baking was how I got started and it remains one of my favorite ways of being creative. Then there are all of the beautiful fruits and nuts just outside my back door in season...pretty California...apples in the fall, but we've gone through blackberries, plums, peaches, pears, walnuts, quince, persimmon in their turn over the years. I grow tomatoes, green beans and lots of summer squash, plus herbs.

Other enthusiasms are painting & drawing, photography, gardening (flowers, too) and writing a bit. Seems like most of these can be enjoyed while blogging or will add to the blog.

I love trying new things and have been cooking long enough that I take the results of new recipes, untasted, to parties and often make small changes to recipes the first time I try them.Foolish? Intrepid? Confident? Who knows?

Looking forward to tasting new things, making new friends and having a good time.

  1. Hello, Elle,

    Thank you for visiting my blog; I laughed out loud at your caption! It sounds as if you and I have LOTS in common; I'm envious of the bounty outside your door, especially this time of year. The things you listed for your veggie garden are the three staples in ours, plus butternut squash, basil and parsley, and usually one thing different each year. I'm excitedly considering asparagus for next spring.

    Anyway, I've added you to my RSS feed and look forward to reading you regularly! Welcome to the blogging "biz"! If you're like me, you'll find it addictive!
