I was going to debut with Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I planned for my great blogging debut to be with some awesome Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies I made for my book club the other night…then we ate them too quickly and I forgot to take a picture. I promise to get better at this, and to be quicker with the camera!

A friend recently told me that I should just start a blog, she also promised that people would want to read it. I will never know whether she made this promise because she was sick of listening to what I planned to cook for dinner that night and thought I needed a new outlet for my kitchen creations or if she truly believed people want to read about these things!

Regardless of the motivations, here I am. I love food! I love to cook and love to bake and I love to talk about baking and cooking. I also like to run – because with all of the eating I need to do something to work it off.

I stressed for so long over my name and this first post its taken a few months to get to this point. Welcome to my journey and please bare with me while I learn the ropes. I also am attempting to learn how to tweet. I am told blogging and tweeting go hand in hand. I figured if I am going to do this might as well go all the way and I joined twitter as well. Follow me @thesugarlining (pretty sure that’s the right lingo)!

I think that this should be enough for one evening…promise an actual recipe to come soon!
