My husband laughs at how much I've gotten into cooking blogging, and while I tease it's just something I do to "feel more like a woman and less like a mommy", I really love cooking and blogging about it.
When I came home with a 4 pound bag of bittersweet chocolate and a mega pack of butter, though, I knew blogging had finally gotten to me. I justified it by saying buying little portions every week for whatever recipe was chosen was less economical. Whatever, that's a TON of chocolate, and I know it's not going to go bad (especially with Dorie's preference for bittersweet!)
There is an article about cooking blogs on WSJ right now and it mentions Tuesdays with Dorie... Here is an excerpt:
...A typical attitude is that of Laurie Woodward, the Pittsburgh mom who runs "Tuesdays With Dorie," devoted to "Baking," the latest cookbook by Dorie Greenspan, one of country's most popular baking writers and a master of American and French classics.
"Dorie is like a god to a lot of bakers," says Ms. Woodward. "And she is so nice about checking in on our blog. Sometimes, she even posts something on it, and everyone goes nuts when she does."
Ms. Greenspan said in an interview that she is, indeed, charmed by the blog and considers such sites to be part of the new Web world in which professional food writers like herself are learning to work.
So my question is... how has blogging changed you- have you been "changed for good for good" like they say in Wicked? Do you eagerly anticipate Tuesdays to see what everyone made for TWD? Do you want your photos to be awesome like Peabody's someday? Have you been bitten by the cooking bug and corrected the clerk at the deli counter about the internal temperature poultry should be cooked to? No... that didn't happen to me... and if you're reading this deli girl, 140 is not acceptable for chicken! :)
