Happy New Year
It's an odd kind of day for December 31st. The sun is shining, the weather is mild, and there is no snow. The lawn is green. I am about to don my apron and settle into the prep work for dinner tonight. It will be simple: our favorite meal of crab legs, with some good champagne, and something chocolate for dessert. Many of the bloggers I follow are writing New Year greetings, choosing their favorite posts of 2011, hinting of things to come. I have been at this blogging project for barely six months, but what an interesting and exciting time it has been. After several false starts, I finally got the courage to sit down and write. I took the advice of a wise family member who told me not to delete anything. And what have I learned? I am not a particularly good photographer, but I am fascinated by the process of learning how to improve my food photos. I like to write about food almost as much as I love to cook. I want others to learn from what I write. That is my goal every time I publish a post. Toward that end I will be making some changes, both in design and content. The challenge is to make Devil's Food a fun place to visit and learn about good cooking. The inspiration I have received from the food-blogging community and the support of family and friends has been invaluable. So I will be here; cooking, baking, snapping photos, and sharing it all on this site. Happy New Year to all!
