Hello! This is my very first blog post, so I’ll keep it simple. I’m a South Florida native, born and raised. I am a bit of a geek, as I work in IT and consider my second and third hobbies to be gaming and anime. The first hobby, you ask? You see, I am a compulsive baker. There is no rhyme or reason. It’s an itch that must be scratched. If I see a recipe that entices me, I will not be satisfied until I have tried it. I am not professionally trained, but I’m sure you’ll be able to tell soon enough. I am not a foodie by any means. I just know when something tastes good.
So, the origin of the blog’s title. While it should be self-explanatory, allow me to elaborate. Food costs money, and good food costs good money. It’s tough to be a working-class Jane with a refined palate. Once the Hershey’s just won’t do it anymore, your wallet feels the sting. I drive a beat up compact car, but my kitchen cabinet is filled with European baking chocolate. Some women have handbags. Others, shoes. I, on the other hand, spend my money on making my taste buds sing. Yes, even when parts of my car are held together with duct tape.
I was reluctant to start my own blog in the World Wide Web’s sea of food blogs. But then, why the heck not? If even one person can share in the happiness of a delicious morsel because of my blog, then I’d say it’s worth it. Hope you see you again soon!
