The Evolution of The Princess's Daily Rants

I have been thinking about it for a long time and have wanted to split my blog.  One of the things that I love the most about this blog is that I have connected with so many people about migraines, mental health, fashion, food and just life.

What has happened over the last year or so, is that I have found I am writing more and more about mental health and general health here, and I am happy about that.  Mental health, bipolar disorder, social anxiety, migraines and chronic illness are my life now.  Everyday these are the things that I deal with and have to manage to be able to function and so I write about them and the struggles that they bring to my life.

On the other hand, I have other interests, primarily food and fashion.  I find it difficult that there are so many "food blogs" out there.  It feels like everyone of my friends is writing a food blog.  Every meal that I go to has people who have cameras taking pictures of every single thing that goes into every one's mouth, tweets about everything that is on every ones plate, writes a review about what is on every ones fork.......quite frankly it is starting to make me a bit crazy, but still I feel like I want to write and share some of my own experiences about food.

So, I would like to introduce you to "We like to eat and drink".  The core of the blog will be a place where "writing and musings by me, about myself, my friends and family, as we celebrate life through eating cooking and being together".  Food is at the core of my family and friends, or social time together and the experiences that we share.  So far I see the blog being divided into 4 different areas:

  • "1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die Challenge" - A few years ago, before I got sick, I started a challenge to "eat my way through this book".  I will be re-posting and re-attacking this book and its challenge on this blog.  More details to come!!
  • Princess Bistro - I like to cook, a lot.  I hope to share some of my adventures in the kitchen, both successful and not, here.  I love having real people over, cooking real food, sharing their experiences.  I hope I can do the same.
  • We Like to Eat and Drink - As the title of this blog, I am fortunate to share a love of food and eating with so many friends and family.  I hope to share experiences of how we celebrate events and friendships with food.
  • The Cookbook Obsession - I collect cookbooks.  I love them.  I hope to be able to share some reviews of the ones that are on my night table for reading and marking up for future recipes.  
  • Culinary Adventures in food - Food has always played a role in my travels and I plan on documenting some of that here.  I feel fortunate to have had so many fabulous experiences abroad, most of them involving food at some point.
I do hope that you will join me on this adventure at My plan is to continue writing here about health and my life, so don't leave me, but I would love your thoughts on food, friends and community at "We Like to Eat and Drink".  You can also follow some of my food tweets @welike2eatdrink.  happy eating and good health!
