Thank you for joining me on my journey through the blogosphere. I wanted to take the opportunity to create a blog mission statement of sorts for myself and my readers. If you can’t tell already, this is primarily a food blog. I am so incredibly passionate about food and photography, and I want to share my love on a larger platform. I’m always the person who friends and family are going to for recipe ideas and cooking questions, so I wanted to find a place where I can put all of my culinary wisdom in one place.
I want to expressly state that I am by no means a professionally trained chef. I realize that the way I do things may not follow classical cooking methods. If you know of a better way of doing something, please share! One of my goals for this blog is to grow as a home cook.
I chose the name The Savory Confection because I am not exclusively a baker or a cook, I love them both equally. I want to share recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, midnight snacks, and everything in between. I will try my hardest to share original and creative dishes, but I also want to shed some light on a few of my favorite tried-and-true recipes.
I can’t promise that I will write about recipes exclusively. Maybe I’ll buy a new lipstick and become obsessed with it, or try a pintrest project and fail miserably. I want to share my trials and tribulations with fellow twenty-somethings like myself who I can relate to. I’ve always loved this quote by one of my favorite musicians, Ryan Adams, “There is nothing wrong with loving the crap out of everything. Negative people find their walls. So never apologize for your enthusiasm”. That’s essentially how I live my life, so that will inevitably carry over onto my blog.
I ultimately hope that through my little spot on the worldwide web, I can inspire young people to get in the kitchen and start cooking. If I can get one inexperienced cook excited about preparing a meal, I will feel accomplished. It makes me so sad when I hear that my friends are eating frozen pizza for dinner once again. Follow my blog, kitchens aren’t supposed to be scary!
