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.
