Welcome all!

So, yes. We all know that I like food. Well, really, I would like alot of food, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.

As I begin this educational journey to improve, well, education, I also wanted a place where I didn’t have to worry about the state of our youth all the time. Welcome to my new hobby.

So, there will be three types of posts:

Type One: Helen Cooks! Full disclosure: this will be a full disclosure blog. If a recipe fails spectacularly, I’ll let you know and record all the gory details. Understand, then, that when I say something is a home run, I’m not exaggerating. I’ll try to post recipes, so long as I don’t run into problems with these guys. For inspiration, I don’t think it will come as any surprise that I’ll be relying heavily on Julia, James, DebIrma and the place I hope to work someday when I’m done fixing education in America.

Type Two: Helen Eats Out! So, I’ve been reading one of my secret heroes lately, and it’s made me want to do undercover restaurant reviews. So, really, that’s what this type will be. Granted, most places I won’t have the chance to dine at more than once or twice, so we’ll all have to keep an open mind. This may also be less consistent, considering the very grad student nature of my budget.

Type Three: Helen Writes About Food! Ok, so this last one still needs some work, but this is what I’m thinking. Periodically I’ll run across an ingredient, a cooking tool, or other piece of culinary mystery, and I take it upon myself to figure out what it is, and then (more importantly) how to eat it or use it to eat something.

That’s the run-down! Happy reading!
