I love food.  But I suppose that isn’t the most profound statement ever uttered.  After all, who doesn’t?  Only trouble is, I’m not what you’d call a good cook.  In fact, I’m more of an atrocious cook.  But I’m enthusiastic and eager to learn, which is why I often find myself scrolling through food blogs drooling and moaning over the wide array of online food porn.  I am constantly astonished as to how many foodies are out there willing to share their secrets and recipes with those of us novices who don’t know a whisk from a hole in the ground.  And the photos!  Oh, some of the photos are, themselves, delicious enough to eat.  For those of you who may be interested, here are a few of my favorite foodies!
