Welcome to my foodblog. I'm a bit nervous so I hope you'll bear with me. First to address a few things that might be helpful as start our journey.
- Toolprincess - a longstanding web moniker derived from my love of gadgets and tools (not just kitchen related)
- I don't have a sous vide so no sous vide stories or Modernist Cuisine this week. (unless it's unintentional)
- I am obsessed with local places whereever I go and I love to find the best local dive...hotdogs, hamburgers, tacos, BBQ, even cafeterias.
- I love to cook but eat out way too often
- I do not give as much attention to fresh, local, or natural as I probably should - i.e. I do use canned foods, boxed mixes and things with high fructose corn syrup at times but I'm no Sandra Lee either.
So now we have the preliminaries out of the way.
I'm Laurie. I just got engaged a month ago. My life is fun but full with an aging mom who needs care, a fiance, a busy job and a soon to be stepson who is 8.
I hope you enjoy my blog!!!
