Another twenty-something with a passion for food. I get lost in the Union Square green market three times a week. I spend hours wandering the aisles of my local grocery stores. I can spend an entire paycheck at specialty markets. On the rare occasion I can afford it, I scour the streets of the five boroughs for great restaurants. I have a giant crush on Anthony Bourdain. I'm Jillian and I'm a food lover with a stolen internet connection and some free time.
Fortunately or unfortunately, this isn't another blog dedicated to discussing snobbish food ideals and I'm not another blogger looking for a book deal. This is just going to be about the things I like in and out of my kitchen. I'll be honest, this will mostly be a venue for me to share new recipes and show off newly acquired chef-like skills. Maybe I'll find the time and money to write a restaurant review. Maybe instead it'll be a book review (by the way, I'm a librarian.) Perhaps I'll share some ideas about my sister's wedding or a party I want to throw. I'm sure I'll write a word or two about my never-ending job search. Really though, this will mostly be about food. Cooking is my creative outlet. Unless you count a few cooking classes in high school, I have absolutely no formal training. But my cabinets are full and my husband is tired of hearing me ramble on about recipe ideas I have and roasting techniques I want to try, so you (whoever you are) are the lucky folks who get to pull up a chair, grab a spoon and dig in to whatever I'm serving up. Bon apetit!
