The blog is finally up and I owe a certain amount of thanks to Cupcake Project and Scoopalicious for holding the Ice Cream Cupcake Contest. Without a hard deadline to make it into the contest I would probably still be draggin my feet getting this thing going. So thanks for the great contest idea and helping to motivate me.
This is my entry into the 2011 Ice Cream Cupcake Contest.

I love food! Food makes me happy. The anticipation of a great meal’s expected arrival at the table has been known to make me giddy like a schoolgirl. Yep I said it. Down right giddy with excitement about the moment about to be enjoyed and savored.
There are so many things I love about food. The need to eat connects all living things. Everyone eats. Men. Women. Young. Old. Every race. Every culture. From the moment we are born our bodies understand the need for nourishment even before our minds do. We even start craving foods Read more
In this section of the blog I hope to show you a glimpse of some of the great people and places I encounter while exploring food in the area or while on the road. It could be a piece on my latest favorite restaurant. Maybe I’ll let you know about the places I find cool kitchen gadgets or where I like to shop for select foods. I may even get the chance to sit down in front of the camera for fun segments with people in the food and beverage scene like Catherine Neville, Publisher and Editor of Feast Magazine, queen of the cupcake bloggers, Cupcake Project creator Stefani Pollack or Hip Hops columnist for the Post Dispatch, Evan Benn. (Hint, if you three are reading this, first, a huge thank you for your inspiration and second, I’m going to be contacting you!)
In this section of the blog I plan of showing you what’s going on at the great food events around town. I’ll take you to my favorite events and let you in on what I like to eat and drink and maybe even get some behind the scenes scoop on how they make these things happen. The list of fun food events gets bigger every year and I’ll try to get to as many as I can. From the Mardi Gras flavor at the Cajun Cook Off, to the already huge and growing Taste Of St. Louis or the town fair feel of the Horseradish Festival, there is something out there for everyone. If you know of a food festival you think I should check out just let me know and I’ll try to make it.
