I'm starting with the bad puns already...that can't be a good sign.
So, I actually created this blog a few months ago. Buuuuut I've been putting off writing my first entry because I got cold blogger's feet--what did I actually have to say? Maybe this was a terrible idea. And why did I ever think that was a cute name for a blog, anyway?
I finally told myself to shut up (inside me, that is. Blogger me, we want her to talk).
What is Chip Chip Hooray? Well, on the one hand (and on the most literal level), I want it to be a record of my culinary exploration. I've always had a healthy (or perhaps unhealthy) appreciation for baked goods, and, more recently, really excellent food of the savory variety as well. I'm fascinated by food blogs, sometimes to the detriment of my actual, paid employment. And I love the idea of having a sort of e-storage of my ponderings and musings about all things yummy. New recipes I tried? Particularly interesting article on food I saw? Delicious restaurant or rogue food cart I think everyone should visit rightthisminute? Now I have a place to write all that! But on the other hand, I don't want to just limit it to baking and food shtuff. Because, frankly, I don't always have all that time to dedicate just to ogling pretty dishes (much as I may wish I did). So you may occasionally get bits and pieces from my Real Life, aka the world of books that dominates my 9-to-5 day, or whatever miscellany may be bouncing about when the writing urge should strike. You have been warned!
The recipe I decided to use for my very first post is a bit of a family affair...follow the jump!
