…I’m Back!!!

18 Nov

A wise sage once said to me, “most blogs have a one to two year life span.”

She couldn’t have been more right.  It’s easy to get burned out on maintaining a blog, especially when your computer dies and takes all your files to the digital after life with it.  I felt unmovitated to keep up with the blog after the demise of my previous lap top, especially when it coincided with the change of a few key contributors to the Dallas food scene and a down economy where mom and pop restaurants were closing all over the place. 

In the mean time, I felt restless after finishing my graduate school work.  So naturally, I decided to go for more schooling, this time for a Culinary Arts certificate through Collin College (part time, the real world still calls).  Then it struck me like a ton of bricks.  I have a natural passion for food, cooking, and educating myself about all things culinary.  And now I get to witness all that is food from the perspective of a foodie and a culinary student.  I wanted to get back to blogging… I needed to get back to blogging.

So I’m back!  I warn you that the first two classes I took through the Culinary Arts program dealt with food safety and sanitation and nutrition and menu planning, so you might be seeing a more health paranoid diner in the restaurant reviews and a more health conscious cook in the home kitchen (more fiber and meatless Mondays, oh yeah).

But I’m still the same curious food enthusiast I have been since the launch of this blog.  I still love all things new, foreign, and different.  I’ll still try anything once.

    “I’ll still try anything once”….

    Since you’re a confessed “texture-challenged Asian”, I want you to try shiokara, preferably Hotaruika no shiokara or konowata

    Your food safety psychosis will go into overdrive, too.

    Hehe…would pay money to witness….

    Donna, I can’t help but find it incredibly funny that you were not posting for exactly nine months.
    Wonder what a gal can do in nine months?
