As I’ve started cooking again, I’ve been in need of a way to store the recipes I’m collecting. The last time I made a go of feeding myself, I still had physical cookbooks, but that generally won’t be the case this time around.
New home for my food chatter
Rather than inundate this site with pictures of food, I created https://cookedby.ethitter.com/ so that people who are interested can follow along and everyone else can ignore me. 🙂
In addition to this blog and my new cooking site, I also have a photoblog at https://i.ethitter.com/.

Smarter snacking choices
This whole go at a Paleo diet has had one appreciable impact so far: better snacks. Rather than a cookie or candy, I’ve opted for fruit and jerky.
I Cooked! I’m Confused.
Those who know me will probably understand the title of this post. I’ve generally had no interest whatsoever in cooking for myself, so I haven’t for several years–not since I last lived alone. I’m fortunate that Chris enjoys cooking and has a particular talent for it, which hasn’t left me any reason to torture him with my ineptitude. Now, having recently adopted a Paleo-inspired diet, and with Chris out of town, I’m making a go of fending for myself.
Chris and I recently decided to try the Paleo diet. The choice wasn’t born from dietary restrictions, and the reasons aren’t interesting enough to write about, but we’re making an effort to eat roughly a Paleo diet.
As we try this, one great resource has been Russ Crandall’s The Domestic Man. We met Russ last month while at Press Publish in Phoenix, and I’ve been drooling over his recipes ever since.
