Should This Become a Food Blog?


I know that in nearly 12 years of blogging
I have never, ever posted a recipe or
showed you a single photo of anything
I've cooked or baked.

* * * BUT * * *

I'm thinking that perhaps
I should now turn this blog
into a FOOD BLOG.

Because who doesn't love food blogs?

And really, how hard can it be to create one?

I mean, I know all the foodie lingo already --


And I can make appetizers like nobody's business!



I'm a whiz at soups too --


Entrees are no problemo for me.




Even desserts are simple!



I'd feature some terrific cocktail recipes too!


But rest assured,
I hate liver, fava beans AND chianti.


So, whaddya think?

Time to go all FOOD BLOGGY?

That was hilarious, I can’t pick a favourite but I will say I’ve never quite recovered from watching silence of the lambs,,

anne marie in philly said...

some of those items look downright DISGUSTING! some are funny, like fish & chips. and HOW THE HELL does spaghetti catch fire?????

my blogger friend blobby does a food post every now and then. I say go for it! but don't crowd out HRH the cat for a food post!

Funny! I got a kick out of this post! -Jenn

Marie Smith said...

Lol. Love it! It would be a great idea!

jaz@octoberfarm said...

i think a lot of this is happening at The Blog Tech's new house.

Brian Joseph said...

Very cool stuff. The banana preparation looks tricky.

Tasker Dunham said...

I've never posted a recipe either, and rarely read food blogs, but on Thursday, as a kind of protest, I was very near to photographing and posting one of my all-time favourites - fish finger sandwiches with piccalilli (seriously delicious). Maybe I'll do it next time.

Bob said...

I'm'a be busy for a loooong time trying out those recipes you just posted!

LL Cool Joe said...

Wow I had no idea you were such a good cook. Yes you need to turn this into a food blog.

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, I have featured one or two recipes in the past, but for Chinese specialties like bai mu-er (seriously delicious). Maybe I'll dust off my kitchen and give you some competition.

Busy Bee Suz said...

OMG, hilarious.
On the burger: Cry loops=Onions? Brilliant!!

Bathwater said...

A humorous food blog...maybe but to many good blogs seem to disappear.

Frank said...

Trailer park cuisine! I've totally LOST MY APPETITE.

DEZMOND said...

I think you promised long time ago and never fulfilled the promise :)

Infidel753 said...

All your recipes look far too complex and sophisticated for me to ever follow. I vote you keep your blog as an everything blog, the way it is now. That could include food occasionally, after all.

Deedles said...

I don't follow food blogs, but if yours turns out like this one I'd be a faithful follower! I do love a pretentious weenie.

Susan said...

As usual, you are spot-on. :)

Kirk said...

"Dairy blankets". That's kind of cheesy.

Tundra Bunny said...

Only if you carry comprehensive vomit insurance for your followers!

Bill Lisleman said...

Your blog is a recipe for laughter. That's a BIG bowl of fish and chips.

bobbie said...

Great post ~ what a hoot!! Looks like you and I cook in a very similar way! Actually, I cheated and married someone who enjoys cooking, and is very good at it. that's why my waist size is what it is!!

pam nash said...

Fish and Chips with Cheese Cake! funny! funny! thanks!

Mistress Maddie said...

After viewing these pictures and memes dear...id say no to your question.

Bea said...

I have to say that I have posted the odd food recipe, and, back when I still tended bar, I think I posted a cocktail recipe or two as well.

If you were to post tongue-in-cheek things like those above, then I would enjoy it!

Ellie-TheForgottenMuse said...

OH My Goodness! Debra, these are hilarious!
I've seen a couple of these floating around FB.
I may have LOL'd a bit too much HAHA!

brewella deville said...

Oh please do it. The world needs more spaghetti-o eggs.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I think I'll be following you for more recipes. These are the funniest food blog posts I've seen - minus the last guy.

Mike said...

Food blog ONLY if it's more of these memes.

Leanna said...

You know what I think? I think we should follow you for more recipes.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I've always thought Hannibal would make a killer restaurateur.

Willym said...

Unless you can cook an entire meal using only a candle and an empty plastic coke bottle the way they do on the really cool "hack" cooking sites it's a no go!

Guillaume said...

No, there's too many of them.

Joanne Noragon said...

Please, No.

Janie Junebug said...

You appear to be quite talented, my dear . . . uh, I can't think of anything else to say.

Love,
Janie

Barbara said...

OMG. So funny. Sadly, it looked very much like my cooking skills.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Why my dear Debra, would you mess with perfection, now excuse me while I go laugh and giggle myself silly.

Lady M said...

You nailed it - I would definitely follow your food blog.

Rosemary said...

I should stick to what you know best and carry on being Debra at She Who Seeks.

Moving with Mitchell said...

The brown-cheese cake recipe would be delicious. But if you’re going to write a food blog, you’ll need to credit me in future when you include one of MY recipes... i.e., the banana!

G. B. Miller said...

I don't quite think that my cooking skills every got that bad. But I do think that the deviled spaghetti-o eggs is a winner.

Rommy said...

*snort laugh* I'm waiting for Hannibal's full color cookbook too.

RO said...

These are all so wonderful and laugh out loud funny, but you already know I'm partial to that cheeseburger!(lol) Hugs, RO

e said...

I cackled like a fiend the whole way through this post! So funny!

I will always prefer:
'Random Thoughts on Random Subjects With No Real Purpose In Mind.'

Rain said...

Hee hee hee hee hee...too funny! Fava beans with a little Ch-chianti. :) I LOVE the fish and chips ha ha!

The Happy Whisk said...

Hahahahahaha. I laughed at the CHEESE CAKE! What a hoot.

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

Such style! Those egg canapes will make any gathering the talk of the town.

^.^ said...

Ahem … ooookkkaaayyy … sure, why not, friend D … give it a try and start one on u tube … I'll subscribe … bell and all … for sure … smiles. Love, cat.

The Captain said...

Fish & Chips didn't translate - those were crisps! 😅😅😅

Martha said...

HAHA! So funny. I LOVE those 'follow me for more recipes' memes that are springing up all over the internet.

Sandy said...

My favorite...ice cubed soup. Saw it awhile back on FB, but still made me laugh seeing it again.

Fundy Blue said...

I'll pass on your food, but I'll go for your laughs anytime, Debra! LOL. The weiner and ketchup is too funny. Terry is in Vegas, but I went out for dinner with two friends tonight. I could have had ribeye steak or scallops or ahi tuna. What did I choose with Terry gone? ~ a grilled bologna sandwich cooked more than the one you featured. OMG it was good. Sometimes you just have to have a little taste of Newfoundland! All the best ~ Hugs to you!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Love the eggs with Spaghettios! Fish and chips is brilliant too! That man has balls pouring his vodka into the soda in public like that.

This N That said...
