Just a quick hello!

Hello everyone!
I'm going to take a few minutes here and just explain a couple of things about what's going on here; first of all, what the "hold the onions" means.
I don't like onions.  I don't like the smell, I don't like the texture, I really don't like the taste.  I'm not overly fond of even having them in the house, but I know that's my problem, not the onions!  I've had people try and sneak them into my food, but I can always find it, smell it and taste it, and I don't like it.
Also, people say, "You don't even taste it!" (which I do), and my thought is, "If you can't taste it/tell its in there, why have it in at all??"
So, I say, "Hold the onions!"

I do 99% of the cooking in our house, and because of that, there are no onions in our food.  My husband suffers through, because he loves me, but if you read through my recipes and posts, you'll not find onions (or scallions, chives, or spring onions) in my recipes.
What I will do, however, is tell you when and where I think onions would be good in a recipe, if you like that kind of thing.  And, if I miss a place, please feel free to let me know!  Sometimes I just won't think about it, since its not a high priority for me!
My plan for this blog is to post twice per week (I'm thinking Tuesdays and Thursdays) recipes with pictures and step-by-step instructions.  A little of this, a little of that, and I'm open to requests.
I'm not a professional, by any means, I've had no professional training, but its just food, so there's no harm in playing!
