Here goes something...

I'm not new to blogging.  I've done it for about eight years in various contexts.  In fact, you can still read my sermons and occasional ramblings on matters theological here.

But life changes in eight years.  I'm now ordained, married, and have a seventeen month old daughter.  I live in Maryland.  I'm a parish pastor.  I have a fairly successful writing avocation.  I could have never guessed that I'd be here now when I started blogging then.

I don't blog nearly as much as I used to.  My world has changed and so has the Internet.  But there is one new thing in my life that I love writing and chatting about: food.  It's not that food is new in my life, but my love of cooking and baking is.

It turns out that I make a mean baguette and that I've inherited some of my Aunt Viola's mad cinnamon roll skills.  I have nearly perfected the art of frying an egg or a mess of bacon in my cast iron cookware.  Just two weeks ago my wife and I made some wonderful tortillas from scratch.

On this blog I'm going to write about food.  Some will be food that I make and some will just be food that I eat.  Most of the recipes won't come from me, but many of them will have my own tweaks in them.

This could be fun, or it could disappear in two weeks.  We'll see.


  1. Don't let it disappear, I need some good conversation that isn't church or politics related.

  2. I'm with ya! Non-church related writing and friends make keep a pastor sane!
