A Notice to Readers – Possible Technical Difficulties

Hello to you all,

Recently, it was brought to my attention by a reader from FaceBook and I quote, “I’ve looked at, read it, liked it is that all I have to do? At the end where it says register it is asking me to pay for a subscription.”

First, I cannot stress enough that I do not know why anyone should have been asked to “pay” for a subscription.  Please know I’m writing this blog for my own fun and am NOT looking for any funding of any kind.  If any of you out there come across this problem, please report it to me as soon as you can.  I am forwarding on that question to WordPress.com’s Help Center for clarification.

Also, if you do like this blog, at the top left of your screen, you should be able to see an option with a star symbol with just the letter, “L” . You can try hitting that to possibly avoid the “subscription” issue as described above. You may also see the option the “Follow” the blog in the upper left corner of your screen as well down in the lower right corner of your screen.  Using the “Follow” function, will allow you receive my postings via email if you wish.

I am still trying to figure out all of the functionality of WordPress.com, so please bear with me.  If you want to leave comments on the blog itself, that would be great, but if you are having any trouble or further concerns, please keep me advised via the various social media options provided so I will know what to work on.

For those of you using WordPress.com, any advice/guidance would be helpful, too. Thank you.

Thank you all for your patience!

Everyone always talks about “finding their passion” in life, right? I have always been one of those people. However, I thought that going through a professional culinary program would be expensive and I didn’t relish the idea of graduating with loans to pay while probably starting with a kitchen job peeling potatoes for 10 or more hours a day at minimum wage. So I just stayed in my comfortable, too comfortable, corporate world as a human resources consultant. The work was interesting for a time and the money was excellent, but all the while a part of me needed to do something to satisfy my feelings of, “What if…?”. What if I had gone to culinary school and followed my passion regarding food. And when I say passion, I don’t mean just dining, but learning about where my food comes from; how is it prepared; how to learn about the best tools used by chefs; how do chefs learn to produce fine food over and over with perfect consistency and how to demystify some things (such as sauces and using more exotic ingredients, etc.) so that they might be more readily understood and usable for the home cook? My curiosity list could go on, but I think you get the idea. I came across the America's Test Kitchen Cooking School On-Line Program - http://www.testkitchenschool.com/?Extcode=N2JCBLOG0 – It offered a 2-week free trial and it gave me access to many lessons starting with Cooking Basics, access to instructor and their direct feedback to me and it just goes on from there. So as I explore this on-line culinary journey, I invite you to come along for the ride via my blog and I hope you will find it as enjoyable and as challenging as I will.
