Why?

After almost a three year hiatus of not just blogging, but social media entirely, someone asked me why I bothered to get back into blogging. It was a valid question since my first attempt was a sad, semi-self absorbed attempt at saying to the world “look, I don’t suck at cooking.” And in the end, no one cared and I eventually stopped caring. After almost a three year hiatus of not just blogging, but social media entirely, I felt like it was time to give it another try.

This time around though, the motivation was completely different. By now, my son was two years old and I realized one of my favorite things in life was to cook with him and feed him. It may sound simplistic, but that is why I’m doing this again. It’s my way of chronicling not just the food I love to eat, but it’s my diary of watching my son grow up and the food that’s fed him and the food he’s seen me cook and helped me cook.

It’s his story as much as mine. So while I will have recipes, travel and product reviews and other cooking related shenanigans, the real reason for it all is him. Who for the sake of privacy, will be known as my little Piglet. And so when I’m gone, he can look back and see a period of his life, in the kitchen with dad, memories immortalized online and in photos, and remember the joys of cooking… and being an Epicurean.

    I landed on this blog searching for good examples of the simple mag theme, and was thrilled to see a “Piglet”. My son too has the moniker “Piglet” on my blog šŸ™‚
