Happy Holidays - Beagles for Hire!

Tired of cookies and candy getting stale under the tree?
Are you wanting to start a diet for the New Year?

Forget which cookie package was for Aunt Edna?

These two Beagles are the answer to your prayers.

How it works:
With their sensitive sniffers, they will scour through your presents and find any candy and cookies that will ruin your waistline, ruin your teeth, increase your cholesterol and make your little kids hyper.

They keep/eat what they find. An inexpensive cost for peace of mind.

Benefit for you:
You will be free to start that diet early.
You will be free from the worries of stale cookies and candies.

What you need to do:
They work best when you're not watching or when you're distracted.
Within 5 minutes, your problems are solved more efficiently than a truck load of TSA screeners.

Mark your calendar now for next year. Their services are offered for a limited time.

Not responsible for torn packages and chew marks on non-food items.
Any carpet cleaning or general cleaning required after consumption is the responsibility of the client.

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Years!

My First Post

This is my first step and first post into the world of blogging.

My chosen topic: Food!

Yes, I know that there are tons and tons of food blogs, but I like to document my experiments with recipes and thoughts of my little world of food. Hopefully, I can present some good recipes and just bring a smile or a few laughs.

My selfish reasons for blogging about food:

1. I hate writing. I'd rather work on a calculus problem than write a paragraph. However, I figure to write well I need to write, write, write about something. Since I enjoy food, I might as well write about a topic I enjoy.

2. This seems like an easy way to archive recipes, eventually with images too! I've written down recipes over the years, made photocopies or saved recipes electronically. The problem is, after many moves and a hard drive crash, I end up losing stuff. Also, Yes! I will cite the sources of any recipes I use. No plagiarism for me.

3. This is a way of saying, "Hi! How are you?" to my friends and family. Everyone is welcome to the blog, but most people won't know me from the next blog. I figure my audience will end up being people that I know. For the new to my blog, "Hi! Welcome! I hope you enjoy!"

Final thought for my first post:
I may be long-winded, but I'll try not to be pretentious and avoid words like sublime, divine, ethereal or any of those fancy meaningless words some professional foodies use to describe a meal, a dish, a bite or a taste. I feel when someone describes a dish or a meal as sublime, they're just trying to bamboozle us into thinking the mediocre meal was worth the expense.
