So Much To Write About, So Little Time

Well, this is the first of what I anticipate will be a long history of blogging. If you're interested in food, adult spirits (my personal favorite), recipes or vacations that include any of those three, then you've found the right place.

As the owner of Yummy~issimo! Personal Chef Service in Cincinnati, I just returned from the 2007 USPCA National Conference in Philadelphia. Now you haven't properly "done" Philadelphia until you've spent five days with 200 personal chefs eating and drinking 24/7. Additionally, I'm very pleased and honored to say that I was given an Excellence in Business Award as the 2007 Marketer of the Year!

I had never planned to write a blog ~ let's face it, there's enough to do on any given day without trying to take photos, think up something clever to say and then sit down and format the photos and text. But thanks to Mark Tafoya, the extremely talented Executive Chef of The Guilded Fork and his fascinating workshop at the National Conference, I'm hooked!

Every Friday morning (at 7:40 am streaming live on your computer) I have a radio segment on WGRR 103.5 FM where I talk with the morning team of Chris and Janeen. We talk about recipes, cooking techniques and whatever else comes to mind and I try to come up with some clever recipe names that tie into something going on in Cincinnati or what's been going on in our lives. Gotta tell you, there are times that coming up with clever names is by far the hardest part! But this week it's easy as I'm talking about Philadelphia~inspired recipes. Check out Yummy~issimo! Personal Chef Service and click on the WGRR Recipes link and you'll go directly to that week's recipes.

I hope you enjoy this blog. Keep checking back ~ I'll post recipes, cooking successes (and failures) and funny client stories.
