First Post Ever

The blog of an amateur health-conscious chef by day, a novice food critic by night, and a tech-obsessed student anytime.

Hi! The above quote describes me quite well, although it is missing a few key things. For one, I do not actually aspire to be a professional chef, rather, I aspire to be a great at-home chef! Formalities aside, is a personal blog which will connect the plethora of social networking services I use including Tumblr, Delicious, Nibbledish, Flickr, and Twitter.

Since, none of these social networking services allowed me to write full-length journal entries which would help me become a better writer and also help readers learn something new. Hence, Toastable was born! Toastable will be the outlet I will use to share cooking recipes, food experiences, health notes, tech news, and other fascinations that intrigue me. My hope is that readers will enjoy reading this blog and learn something new in the process.

The name of the blog “Toastable” is fitting because bread can be toasted and bread is a food item! Honestly, I simply think that “Toastable” is verbally-appeasing to enunciate . I had considered a wide list of names varying from “Fooduoh” to “BreakfastBol” and even “Journish.” In the end, I think “Toastable” was the  most easy to spell and pronounce names that was food related.

About Earl

Hi, my name is Earl. I am a student who loves to analyze food and eat healthy. My careful eye for food has caused me to become interested in the science behind food and cooking, and I write about my explorations into food on my website While I believe in sticking to whole, natural foods, I'm not afraid to work with avant-garde ingredients and equipment such as constant temperature water baths and sodium alginate. I also love photography, technology, and journalism.
