Cooking up the Dream that Delivers a Smile

March 4, 2010 1 comment

If you didn’t already know it… no, I’m not a poet… but I do enjoy cooking! I can plant it in the kitchen for hours hanging out cooking, even better with good company, but am perfectly content here just hanging with my hero (that would be the J-man… nope, and I’m NOT talking about Jay-Z!!)

I love to make some of my old-time favorites, Steak Diane is definitely near the top of the list, have been known to overdo the brandy flambé a bit, sending flames to the ceiling… this is one of the fabulous recipes that I learned at the Gainesville Hilton, back in the Prime Rib Room days (the stories are endless from that place!)

I also enjoy new recipes, the stranger the better, last week it was low-fat cottage cheese pancakes, they were yummo! Epicurious has plenty of superb recipes, and a great iPhone app (but of course!) to boot.

Cooking just seems to be one of the most enjoyable ways for me to relax, unwind from a busy day, or share an experience with good company. I could go on and on here… I’m daydreaming just thinking about this as I write… isn’t that great! Maybe you share my passion for cooking, or maybe it’s something else that really floats your boat, please do share with us whatever it is that you’re passionate about… and make sure to spend time doing it, with passion, and for His glory… and if you like to eat fun food, see flambé to the ceiling, and enjoy intriguing conversation, send me a shout, and let’s hang out (I really am a poet, and now I’m gonna show it!!) heeheehee…

Why a blog?

February 21, 2010 2 comments

“Chris, why in the world,” you may be wondering, “would you want to do this blog thing?” Great question! And the answer is…

  • I like to write (ok, that’s an understatement… I’m PASSIONATE about it… is that better!)
  • I’ve had several friends recently encourage me to start writing more
  • “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 – yep, I believe that writing is a part of God’s plan for me, and would humbly add that while I’m not thinking that I’m really good at it, it is FUN!! And I’ve found that when you really get plugged into your purpose in Him you find that life is exciting and real.

I hope that you’ll join me on this journey, let me know what you think, and subscribe or check back to see what this is all about.

Be Great,
