I Am Learning Even Though It Is A Process
I am a self-taught cook and chef and now I am becoming a self-taught recipe writer and blogger. It is a process I am not going to kid you, there are times I want to quit. I feel like there are so many food bloggers out there who could care less about what I have to offer.
Once I get over my pity party I seem to always have this recipe I am making that I want to share with my friends and with people on social media. Whenever I post a recipe and my friends, family and my followers like what they see it makes me want to write more and create more simple recipes.
I find that people rather simplicity when it comes to cooking and not complicated dishes but, it still has to look and taste delicious and that is what I try to execute simple delicious meals and dishes. People do not want to travel the globe for an ingredient so you can make a great dish many times with what you have in your pantry.
I thought this would be easy but it takes a lot of dedication and commitment to become a blogger thinking about what can you write about next or what dish can you make and will people read what you write. You also have to be a part of the now with social media you have to put yourself out there, now I am on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and Tumblr which I recently joined. I am just glad that I am retired
I am still a work in progress there is so much I have to learn and so much I have learned. I do know one thing that cooking is my passion and I have taken pictures of my food with my cell since the iPhone 3G came out making it easy to take pictures of everything. Until next time, make something great.

Today we got our first blizzard of 2018, January 4, 2018, it was a lot of snow and we were really snowbound in. I took Buttercup my yorkie out to the backyard and I had to shovel the snow to make a path for her she is only 6 lbs, it was not too bad about an inch had fallen and she was able to walk on it pretty good. A few minutes later it looked like I never shoveled at all. The schools did not open, airports were closed and we were told to stay off the roads due to serious unsafe conditions.
Since we got all this snow I did the next best thing and put on a pot of soup, I made a black bean chili soup with beef and it was so good, I will post the recipe at a later date.
We survived the day and we made the best of a snow day here in Brooklyn New York, so I say too you all stay warm and be safe. Until next time. Brrrrr.
I am seriously on a new journey still, is it possible to constantly be on a new journey? I often ask myself. “Mmmm” oh well I guess it is I seem to always be trying to find that niche in life that I am good at. Have you gone through a period in your life that you are still searching, seeking and wondering what it is that you love and are passionate about? I have tried before I retired and after I retired. I remember I wanted to become a court reporter I enrolled in college online started the course I basically self-taught myself. It was great then my wrist started hurting I was developing carpal tunnel syndrome but at the beginning stage. Oh well gave that up money down the drain but I still have that machine to sell I need to post it on Facebook or eBay.
I started my cleaning service, that was some hard ass work. I believe that was how I developed rotating cuff tear in my right shoulder but to tell you the truth I believe I got it from always cleaning my home three levels, of sweeping, vacuuming, mopping, dusting and so much more that did not last long either oh boy…
Then I decided to try my hand at opening up a private home Daycare service right in my home that meant closing down my dining room and turning it to a home daycare center that did not last long either. So as you see I am still trying to figure out what it is I want to do that I am passionate about.
My point is no matter how old you are don’t give up on your dream or something you are passionate about, we are all on a journey or we will all be on a journey at some point and time in our lives. Find your passion whatever you truly really love to do whether it may be acting, cooking, blogging, or something else make sure you love it…
