Is this me?

>> Monday, March 23, 2009

I'm an English into Spanish translator, who was a chemist for 15 years before actually becoming translator. I'm from Madrid, Spain, and at present I live in a small town North-West of Madrid with my family. I don't know if my chemist past has something to do with my present love for cooking... when I was in college a common way of teasing Chemistry students was to call us cooks... Absurd as an insult.

No, I believe my liking for cooking originates from my family, mostly from my mother and my paternal grandmother. My development has been slow though; I'll never be able to say, like I've seen in some other blogs, that I started to cook as a child... I was a late bloomer.

I have a partner who witnesses undisturbed how I stuff the house with loads of kitchen gadgets and artifacts and mountains of cookbooks. I will soon ask for his canonization. I'm also a mother of two boys that don't care for my cooking at all. Too bad for them. But still I've got some hope.

And in case you were interested in knowing why on earth I started to write this blog, I'm afraid I can't satisfy your curiosity, as I haven't got the faintest idea. I must admit it was a brilliant decision though, as I have a grand time cooking and photographing my dishes. I'm even learning XML, something I never even thought I would know how to pronounce...

Come on in and make yourselves comfortable, we can cook together.

(On a side note: as you might have noticed, English is not my mother tongue... please bear with me.)

Hi there –

I am getting in touch with you to invite you to check out our new food photo submission site, called . DessertStalking has been in operation for only a short time, but it is growing fast, with more bloggers registering to make submissions every day. In addition, contributors are beginning to notice an increase in the number of visitors to their blogs. That means more new friends, and if you run ads, increased revenue, as well as the chance to further spread your particular point of view when it comes to talking about great food.

DessertStalking is dedicated to the sweeter side of life – all sorts of desserts, treats, snacks and breakfast foods are welcome, as well as yeast and quick breads. I noticed that when I submitted dessert photos to the other submission sites, I got 3 or 4 times the hits as I did for savory submissions. People love desserts, and they love looking at great photos of the work of people who are creative in the kitchen, so why not a site that concentrates on goodies?

I hope that you will stop by, take a moment to register and give us a try. Two things we ask: just one submission per post please, and only one submission every twenty four hours. We send out an email when your submission is moderated, so you will know if it has been accepted, and if it is not, we will let you know why. As time allows, we also tweet our favorites. Follow us at . We welcome photos from your blog’s archives, as well as more recent shots. Our submission guidelines are available on the site, along with answers to frequently asked questions. We try to get back to you as soon as possible, so don’t hesitate to send us an email if you have any questions. Hope to see you there soon!

I was a Chemistry major too, but I love cooking and writing more.
I discovered you on cookeatshare and saw your cookies which remind me of the Sicilian cookies we make that are topped with sesame seeds. Your recipe inspired me to look for the recipe of those old world cookies.
I love simple recipes that are just tasty, hence I find myself here with a compliment to you.
