What's Cooking at the Genua's?

It's Not Just Popcorn!

Hello world!

on March 8, 2010

Hi everyone! Well I finally did it! I am officially blogging! Today’s post will just be an introduction to what I am doing in the future! I am in the process of writing a cookbook and I thought what better way to get started than to write a blog. This blog will have daily recipes and hopefully pictures to go along with them! I have a habit of posting my daily dinners on Facebook and I keep getting requests for the recipes so what better way than to put them in a blog!

Each day I will have a different type of recipe. For now I am going to try to post the following: Sunday: Potpourri (great restaurants/gadgets/food products etc); Monday: Sides/Soups/Salads; Tuesday: Main Dishes; Wednesday: Family/Friends Recipes; Thursday: Desserts/Baking; Friday: Beverages; Saturday: Snacks/Appetizers. These may change as I go along so don’t hold me to them! I will also include any little story that goes with the recipes. I am also going to link the blogs to my Facebook and Twitter accounts, once I figure that out!

How did I decide to do this?

After getting laid off (thanks to our economy) in July 2009 from my dream job that I had for almost six years I’ve been trying to do something to make some money. I worked at home for this last job and the thought of going back to an office or retail type job just made me cringe. For one thing I would need a whole new wardrobe and without an income that would be tough. Because not only was I unemployed but my husband had gotten laid off as well in February 2009! He luckily had severance pay, I did not. Luckily he was able to get unemployment, I again did not. I had so many mixed feelings and didn’t know what to do. My worst nightmare had come true. But knowing we were not the only ones in this situation made it a little better, not much, but a little. Florida’s unemployment rate as well as the national rate is much higher than reported since they don’t take into account all of the people who were ‘independent’ or small business owners etc. Anyone who does not collect unemployment is not counted. So here I am. I’ve sold lots lately on eBay, it’s amazing how much stuff I found to sell! It has paid for extras which has been nice. I am also “thinking” about selling Tupperware again, but just online. I hated doing parties but LOVE Tupperware. So with that said my Recipe Blog is born! I hope everyone will enjoy it and I look forward to comments!
