On blogs and cooking

I looove cooking. Well, if you've read the undertitle for this blog, you'd already know that. Somehow, I feel that a lot of people think that cooking equals entertaining, and I must admit that I do like when I have other people enjoying the food I make with me. Then again, I certainly never mind making myself a decent meal - it's just that I'm usually so hung up with school, work, TV?! - that I'm lousy at getting myself stuck in the kitchen (OMG did I just sound like Jamie Oliver? That really wasn't intended!)

Maybe, just maybe, this blog could help me start using my vast collection of cookbooks (BF promised we'd pass 100 this year) - if not for anything else, than at least to have something to write about in here! I know, I know - it's not exactly anything breathtakingly new, but I'm starting to think that blogs isn't necessarily about being inventive - it might as well be homey and comfy and a nice place to check into...?

Another day at work...

How come it doesn't really feel like the day is over when you work 12 hours straight? Maybe I should explain: I work at a restaurant and what with the summer break and everything, this is time to make some money! I actually really like my job - I'm a waitress - but it's kinda: you wake up - go to work - work - go home - and go to bed. That can't be all there is!

So that's why I'm so happy BF's been working today as well - right now he's making me a cup of Baileys Cream tea and in a minute he'll be sitting next to me, watching a weird program on Discovery. Guess the day's not too bad after all!

Wow! So that's how you do it!

I've wanted to do this for a while - start my own blog. Not quite sure I know excactly how one does this - or even why one does it... But here goes!

Me - I'm Zarah. I'm Danish, live in Denmark, to be more exact in Copenhagen, the capital. Writing in English, realizing it might not be my primary language, and hence not the one in which I can express myself as fluently as I might wish - nevertheless, I figured it'd make it easier for me to communicate with people from all over the world. Well, Danish is just not one of the best known languages in the world now, is it?

A blog. Hmmm...
