Hello hello, indeed. I’m Joanna, a 20something who just moved to the South to embark on a journey towards a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, and I’m living alone & attempting to feed myself for the first time. This blog will primarily be focused on the cooking and consuming of food, because I love it oh so much, and you know, you have to eat, so you might as well take joy in preparing your food. I am, however, going to use it as something of a creative outlet as well, since I won’t have much of those for the next four or five years, so you’ll see posts about my work and life in general interspersed with the food posts.
I take inspiration from the innumerable brilliant food blogs out there on the interwebs, many of which will be referenced and credited as I post the things I’m cooking. I’ve just started to get confident in the kitchen myself, so most of what I make won’t be terribly difficult, which means that you should try it too! I’ll include any notes I have on if and how I altered the recipe, and I will also try to take pictures of my cooking process, because food looks pretty sometimes (who knew?), so that’ll be an exercise in artistic expression as well.
I just made a gargantuan turkey chili yesterday (found at the incomparable Omnomicon, recipe itself can be found here), so I won’t be cooking again until later this week when I work through all the leftovers from that, but stick around! Check back every now and then! I might get bored and post something exciting.
