Recipes You Won't Get From Me

Since this blog is focused on foods I like to make, and I only make foods I like to eat, I just wanted to give you, my dear reader, a heads up on some foods/recipes you will not be seeing from me. I figured I ought to get the negative stuff out of the way right away so we can move on to the food! Though you might see me use these ingredients, those instances will be few and far between.

I don't like cream cheese. Or ricotta cheese. Or yogurt. You will not see a cheesecake recipe, a lasagna recipe, or a cannoli recipe. I wish I liked these foods, but unfortunately I don't.

It's my dad's fault that I don't like cream cheese. My parents like cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, but I never cared for them. When I was but a wee viking, my dad made me a cream cheese and jelly sandwich and I thought it was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I took one huge bite of what I thought was a delicious PB&J and nearly threw up. Ever since then I can't even abide the smell of the stuff.

As an amateur foodie, I am always looking to expand my horizons by trying new ways to use these ingredients, so if you have any suggestions or recipes, I would be happy to give them a try.

But, what you will see here is grilling, frying, vegetarian options, delicious desserts (if I can get my neighbor to part with some recipes), savory sauces, tasty meats, plus some of my favorite restaurants and where you can go to find some of my favorite foods.
