Welcome to Yum and Yummer!

That's me in Venice!

There was a time when I assumed I could not cook and the mere thought of cooking sent me into a panic. Okay, not a panic, but it sent me to my nearest fast food restaurant because I speculated a paring knife to be a toddler’s steak knife and a Dutch oven meant something completely different and unappetizing. I call these years “the dark ages.”  And also the poorly nourished ages.

During these dark times I ate so much Hamburger Helper that I’m surprised I didn’t start seeing a creepy glove in dark alleyways, holding a shiv in his four grubby chubby little fingers. But I digress.

I couldn’t exactly tell you when I came out of the proverbial cooking closet, but once I set foot in the kitchen there was no going back.  This blog is a means by which I share my culinary success and the occasional flop. Every day I find myself learning new techniques and tricks, and I love nothing more than to share them in non sequitur and slightly (i.e. heavily) inappropriate ways. I have a foul mouth and I’m unapologetic about it, so if you take umbrage with this, please do not email me about it.  I probably will roll my eyes very hard, which will give me a headache. Neither of us wants this.

Sooo…thanks for stopping by and please be sure to write me — I’d love to hear from you! Oh, and if anyone knows what happened to the Hamburger Helper glove’s fifth finger, please let me know. Seriously, I’m concerned.
