Just to be clear, I started a blog a year ago, during a rather stressful and less happy time in my life. My husband was overseas serving in Afghanistan and I was left with our at the time 1-year-old daughter who was already going through her terrible twos. So I ended up nixing the blog. Which I apologize to the few who did read it.
I have recently had more time for myself to express my creativity. In other words put my damn Culinary Degree to good use. For me to continue to hone my skills that I learned in school I would like to offer my fellow bloggees (if that’s how you’re supposed to put it) a look into what I like to dabble in. The Culinary Arts. I attended what was the Texas Culinary Academy, which while I was attending got their Le Cordon Bleu Accreditation. So therefore I ended up at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, graduating with an Associates in Applied Sciences: Culinary Arts.
I am always getting questions from friends and people I know about what to do with what vegetable, how long eggs can last in the fridge etc, this was when the thought came to me to start a Page on my Facebook to give assistance and advice as well as allow others to put in their two cents. Which would also help me in practicing said culinary skills as well as learn more about culinary delightful nom noms.
My Facebook page which is titled Apron Strings: Cooking Tips and Advice has 21 followers which the majority are my family and close friends. I would like to see it branch out to many more people interested in the same things I am . I love Food, the mechanics of it, the honing of it, the cooking and of course the Eating.
I was once a Picky eater, even with that I still loved cooking. My philosophy then was that I didn’t have to eat it to enjoy making it. Now In my lowly years of 24 and almost 25 in May. I have gotten to experience the world. Literally experience it. I was an exchange student in Germany when I was 16 for ten months with the Rotex (Rotary Club International). I joined the army when I was 17 and became a military police soldier. I deployed to Iraq in 2007, I turned 19 two months prior to deployment. I spent 9 months there during the surge. I then volunteered to go back to Germany to be an MP, which I in fact did for 10 months in 2008-2009. I came back in the summer od 2009 to enroll in Culinary School. I did the fast track 15 month class. Which was get your 2 year degree in 15 months, more classes in each period. Met my husband, got pregnant (no kidding, I didn’t think this girl was nuts as it is). We have been happily married since May of 2010.
2 Deployments down with my husband it’s been a hell of a ride. Thus I restate my point of this really long intro. Apron Strings Doesn’t matter how much I tie those darn things always getting caught in them. But I will always continue cooking no matter the distractions.
