You Can Find Me Under The Cookbook

NOTE: The link is all fixed!

Even though I really do have more than enough on my plate already, I’ve decided to add more. I am going to try to do the cooking blog. Am I crazy? I probably am, but I really want to do this, so I am going to do it.

I have decided the blog will go live today at 10:00 CST. You can check it out here. There’s just an intro post. I mean this shit is really bare bones at this point, but I’m working on it. In the meantime, I’m looking at other cooking blogs to get an idea of what types of formats people follow in their posts.

I won’t go too straightforward with just recipes and pictures. I like to do my commentary and to add my opinions a little too much for that. So we’ll see where it goes.

I have already got my first recipe down, and I’m so proud of that fact. When the niece was over to our apartment all last weekend, we made pancakes using a recipe from the cookbook that I love so much and on which this entire blog is based.

I love this book and soon you will too!

Have you ever made pancakes from scratch? I’ve always wanted to as a kid, but never got around to it because using the box mix was just so much easier. But now I take pride in making things myself and not from a mix.

I must admit I’m quite excited about this new blog. This personal blog of mine filled with randomness (like Tracy Anderson trying to kill me) and plans (like the never-ending quest to unpack my apartment) and anecdotes about the husband is still my first love, but it’s nice to find a way to connect two things I really love. Blogging and cooking made a baby and it’s called You Can Find Me Under The Cookbook.

    For the last three years, I’ve made pancakes from scratch. Had to in Korea. Yesterday I broke down and bought a box of bisquick. It is just a hassle and a mess sometimes. I suppose a good way to do it is to get the dry mix prepped in bulk. I might try that once we get through this box. I look forward to you new blog!

    • I like that idea to prep the dry mix in bulk. It will be great for when we have kids.

    I grew up on homemade pancakes, waffles, and crepes. My mom never believed in using box mixes for anything like that, she always baked everything from scratch. Nearly every weekend when I was growing up she’d cook us up a batch of pancakes, or waffles.
