A Twist of Spaghetti

"Spaghetti can be eaten most successfully if you inhale it like a vacuum cleaner." ~ Sophia Loren

Blogging about food for me as been much like working to perfect a takes a few times to get it right with the perfect flavor, balance, and taste. My first food blog was linked to another blog I no longer compose and most recent has a negative premise that I no longer want to link to my creative work. Both were only focused on recipes, which is a problem for me because, as a true foodie, I feel compelled to explore all kinds of food blogging. I want to add restaurant reviews, wine tasting notes, and even some anecdotes about my experience with food.

Being a curvaceous cook in the Nigella-esque sense, I have always loved Sophia Loren's quotes about spaghetti. The fact that Sophia Loren discusses her poor self image when she was rail thin tells you something important about beauty, doesn't it? Her expression about pasta shows what she truly values when she looks in the mirror.

I, too, value spaghetti. It is a staple food that has always been there in various ways, shapes, and forms, both during the highest and lowest points of my life.

So, grab a fork, twist, and enjoy, because finally this plate is full with the perfect ingredients for a food blog!
