INTRODUCTIONS

I had never entertained the idea of creating my own blog, let alone one that is food related. However, after being an avid reader of many other great food blogs, and a growing interest in photography, I have been inspired to start my own.

So as you can see I am completely new to the wide world of blogging, I am an amateur in every sense of the word- in blogging, in cooking and in probably a lot of other things. So I must warn you all I am no culinary expert, I have no skills that would warrant some sort of esteem in any foodie sense but I'm interested in food and I do love to eat.

Is it stalkerish to post twice in one session? Nevermind, just wanted to say that I'm already hooked on your blog, I'm also a chocolate fiend, love The Princess Bride, Garden State, Neverending Story (which my daughter now also loves) amongst others and everytime I go to Paris I eat my weight in pastry!

Hello. I love schnitzel. Do you have good schnitzel recipe? Low fat schnitzels that taste good? My personal trainer give me good pumping if I do not cut down on schnitzel. You can see him give good pumping on my own blog if you want.
