So I was thinking about starting a food/cooking blog. For anyone who knows me, one of my favorite things is sharing bits of myself (insert dick joke here) with other people. I've done it here on NG through my flash submissions, podcatsts, etc etc, but I've never really been able to share my passion for food and cooking with a global audience.
I am currently staring at a wordpress form and drawing a complete blank as to what to call this goddamn blog, and what to even write about for that matter, so maybe you fags can help me out.
I love to cook and entertain (parties, bbq's etc), and I'm pretty good at it. I also try to make my food have actual nutrition without sacrificing any flavor (a great skill for people with kids), but without it being preachy 'health food'.
The point of view I want to work on is the fact that I am not a trained chef. I don't own a fancy kitchen, or a lot fancy tools. I don't buy a ton of expensive ingredients (I grow my own herbs and shit when I can). Its all stuff anyone in the real world can do if they know how.
This is probably going to be one of the most sincere things I have ever done too, so I guess you'll all see my lighter side. Try not to fall in love.
Here's a few blog titles I thought of, but I'm not sold on any of them yet.
I am a home cook and so can you
Real World Food
Stand the Heat
I'm looking for a title that really captures my point of view.
I'm also looking to see what normal everyday people want to learn how to do in the kitchen. I'm not really interested in posting recipes (although there will be plenty). I'm more interested in teaching people techniques and how to mix flavors and shit so you can not only cook without recipes, you can do it in an average home kitchen.
