Grab a Knife and Fork

Pull up a chair and enjoy my plate...

I've been working on the idea of a food blog for awhile now... The thought sprang into my mind one night, I'm not sure what exactly brought it on - but I knew it would be a fun idea. I love to cook and share the things that I make with others. I also love the restaurants around Bucks County and I'm always up for trying a new one. There's also an abundance of fresh produce from local farmers markets, farm stands, farm co-ops, and pick your own in the area.

I plan on posting daily (or close to daily) about the meals I've made (perhaps even just made that day), about some of my favorite cooking shows on Food Network, cookbooks I love and use often, cookbooks I'm looking forward to getting, kitchen tools/gadgets, restaurants I've recently visited, and any food adventures that happen to pop up (like apple picking, the Strawberry Festival in Peddlers Village, berry picking, etc). I've been wanting to plan days to post things like cookbook and restaurant reviews - but I haven't really settled on which day I'd like to do that...

I was going to start this blogging journey on a Sunday or Monday - but after messing with Photoshop CS4 and creating a header for the blog I had to post something. I was pretty happy with the result and excited to start sharing. I have a lot of pictures to edit and organize and I need to try and find links to some of my favorite restaurants. I also might head out with my camera and photograph some of the restaurant locations because some of the places are in amazing spaces.

Here's to warm ovens and full bellies.

  1. Love the header, love the first post. Cant wait to read more!

  2. Thanks Patty,
    That header had me obsessively working on this all night long. I saved the original file *with* layers so I can go back and drag/drop new images when I feel like changing things up a bit. :)

  3. Great site babe... I know you likely don't want to infuse the theme of cooking with your other "hats"... jewelry for instance but maybe a bit of graphic ad on the side or something for your Etsy shop so that it "sticks out" but doesn't distract from the overall theme.
