Since Underdogs are either unknown or under appreciated (or both), shameless self promotion can become a necessary evil or an occupational hazard (or both).
But I'm all for shameless self promotion if it delivers what it promises.
That established, I feel perfectly comfortable in shamelessly promoting the hell out of myself. Or in this case, my husband.
Chris just started a new food blog called Dad Can Cook. He is one of those rare man's man types who also has some rather uncharacteristic interests. He doesn't just love food - he also loves cooking.
Which is great because while I can definitely cook (and I kind of kick ass at it if I do say so myself), I don't particularly like doing it. I like THE IDEA of playing chef, but the lack of time, energy and pleasant kitchen environment (think cramped galley with few amenities) kind of kills any creative urges I might get to whip up a soufflé.
So back to Chris' blog.
He is going to talk about recipes and experiments, review various and sundry Food Network shows and their self-proclaimed gurus, and try to be funny while doing so. I say "try" because his guy humor sometimes falls flat with me. (I said he's a man's man type didn't I?)
If you catch his first post (today), click on the links. These really did make me laugh!
