But it's been fun, and when I started, I questioned whether I'd be able to keep it going. I worried whether I could find enough material to scratch out an essay every week about life through the lens of food, or perhaps it's food through the lens of life? Whatever. I'm still here. Along the way I've reconnected with old friends and made some new ones--much how I've reconnected with old recipes and tried some that I never would have otherwise. A year ago when I googled "minivan cook", I came up with stories of minivan murders in Cook County and how to cook crystal meth in a minivan. Now the same search pulls up this blog. Say what you will, but I'll take that as an accomplishment. Many thanks to those of you who follow me, encourage me, or feed me ideas. We're a small little cadre, but look at this way, we're keeping crystal meth off the internet. Happy Anniversary, Minivan Cook!
Yeah right. If you've been following this blog, you know that I don't bake.
Best I'll do is open a box of mix and add water, eggs, and oil. Better yet--maybe I'll go buy one. They're big and cheap at Costco.
