Like I didn't have enough to do.
I've been using my bread machine like crazy, of late, and started wondering how I could use it make bread that wasn't part of the recipes that came with it. Things like sourdough bread (Yes, Virginia, there is a way). So, rather than litter this blog with tons of bread maker recipes, at the expense of everything else, I decided to open up another one.
Glutton for punishment, that's me.
Why the kitchen store? To put it simply, I need the money. Well, with all the time I've been putting into this blog, and now the new one, I've got to start justifying the work with more than a feeling of love and acomplishment. I need cash.
Don't worry. I'll never put an item in the store I wouldn't consider buying, myself. When I started this blog I had 5 goals in mind:
- To entertain
- To inform
- To develop my writing skills
- To help make cooking fun and show that you don't have to be a master chef to make good food.
- To help people bring their families together.
I will not abandon these goals for the sake of simple profit.
Besides, there's not much profit in kitchen stuff. At the same time, if you're in the market for a piece of cooking equipment, or a new cookbook, I'd be grateful if you check out the store, first.
Even if you don't, that's okay. Keep coming to the party. It's not as much fun without you.
