This is it. THE First one, so it has to be monumental right? Well that’s where The Everywhere Stretch comes into play. I recently came across this video that discusses how The Big Bang Theory is a terrible name for the beginning of the universe and a more accurate description is The Everywhere Stretch. I had originally kicked around Genesis or the very austere sounding Mission Statement as the title of my first post. But I went Big, real BIG, so big I have no hope of filling my own universe creating shoes. Call me a hopeless romantic or an egomaniac. They are, at times, fitting. BUT, I am getting away from the topic at hand: The Saucy Tart food blog extraordinaire…

Aaaand in the beginning There were a million zillion food blogs. So why one more? In my own defense, I have procrastinated my entry into blogdom for literally (for those of you who hang onto the original definition of literally) several years now and literally (for those of you who have been misusing literally so much that this happened) since the beginning of time when there were maybe just a million food blogs (see how I connected all that? Oh, Man.) Well, mostly I need this blog for me. As I mash up, tweak or just go on a marathon search for the perfect recipe, I rarely document it, so when someone asks for the recipe or I try to recreate it,  I am often at a loss and have to start over. No more I say! Now The Saucy Tart is here. Never fear!

Secondly, I like you. I hope we will be good friends. We can have important conversations (like what is the best olive oil). I can share links like this all important rap battle between Edison and Tesla with you and you can relay unbelievable information to me like this about living root bridges. LIVING ROOT BRIDGES!? Pretty soon we will be swapping photos, recipes and political rhetoric. We are going to be sooo smart and savvy. I can’t wait! Conclusion: I think we will work well together.

Of course no Genesis-Big Bang-Mission Statement-Everywhere Stretch style beginning would be complete without some sort of power hungry/fame seeking element so I will say this about that: It is my understanding that all people in the food industry are famous so I am just preparing for that by having imaginary cozy homemade dinners at my house with the likes of @billclinton @neilhimself or @Jane_Goodall =>Dreams. But, as a wise beyond her years woman once said (sang, really)

“Put it in some soil,

and watch it grow.”

    So here are my dream seeds. ❤ Dani

And for those of you who thought a food blog post titled, The Everywhere Stretch, would somehow be related to pizza dough; this picture is for you.

*Don’t worry pizza lovers, there will be plenty of pizza in future episodes.
