i've got a food baby

So, you're probably wondering, "What the French toast is a 'food baby'?" 

Well, it's the title of my blog. And it has dual meaning.

1. A "food baby" is that feeling you experience when you've eaten too much. For example, you devour heaps of dinner and dessert at The Cheesecake Factory (of course you had the Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake), and then you head to the mall (walking is a little uncomfortable) and go into your favorite store because they're having a killer sale on jeans. You head into the fitting room with a stack of these jeans and have to suck your belly button into your spine to button those bad boys. Never mind the fact that this is the size you always wear in this particular brand of jeans. No, it doesn't matter. You have a FOOD BABY.

2. I am a "food baby" so to speak. I love to cook and bake delicious food for my family and friends, but I have a lot to learn. I'm teaching myself as I go, picking up little things here and there. But do not ask me what fennel is. Or what to do with it. And I don't know what a "confit" is, but I do know that it's not pronounced how it looks. 

So my hope for this blog is to share with you my journey of cooking: the tips and tricks I pick up along the way, the recipe FAILS and triumphs, and anything else that's interesting. 

Cook with me!
