Life, and Other Non-Food Happenings

Yep, it’s another food blog.

Being the borderline-obsessive monkey that I am, I have for a few years kept a recipe file on my computer (two, actually, one of the things that we’ve made and know are good—titled, of course, ‘known-good’—and one of the things that sound good and we want to try, which is currently in a file called, yep, ‘things-to-try’.  For what it’s worth (not much, I’m sure), most of the ‘things-to-try’ is in an old, still-Tiger-supporting version of Yum, while the ‘known-good’ is in LaTeX with the cuisine package, and there’s also a ‘things-to-try’ in LaTeX as well…).

For mother’s day presents for a couple family members a couple years ago, I had copies of our ‘known-good’ file printed and bound by Kinko’s.  This was ok for a one-time special-occasion present, but (especially seeing as the file has grown to 50(!) pages, a 288K pdf) isn’t especially sustainable for ongoing sharing. So when my then-partner and I started talking about sharing recipe files with a friend, I started thinking about finding a different, smaller, more shareable way.  And thus this page was born.

And then after about three posts the project stalled, for an assortment of reasons.  Six years later, the recipe files are, in their way, more inaccessible than ever, so I’m bringing it back.  This will be far more ‘recipe box’ than ‘food blog’, but we’ll try to at least make it a little interesting to people who aren’t me…
