Who among us has not come across a "blog to book deal" story and thought with extreme annoyance, "I could have and should have done that too"? Take the instance of the latest book from a blog, "The Art of Eating in", in which an obviously entitled human being decides to chronicle a year of cooking her own meals and not, well, eating out. Perhaps also one of the most annoying and unbelievably clueless blog-to-book concepts out there considering that most people eat in since it's CALLED BEING POOR!*
Nonetheless, we have decided to jump on the blog to book bandwagon! I, oogie, who is an all-around lame cook (by the kindest of terms), will start blogging about her trials and triumphs in the kitchen!
