Anyway, here's the story of how iCook got it's name. I had been toying around with the idea of a cooking blog for a long while. Like, at least 6 months. But I wanted a good name, something that I thought of, that was original. So, I stockpiled ideas for this "cooking blog idea" and knew that eventually something would come together.
Fast forward to August. My family are huge sports fans. NFL is my favorite, by far, and by August I am getting so excited because football is about to start!!! My husband and I added the HBO channels just to watch Hard Knocks, because they were following around the Dallas Cowboys and filming their training camp and pre-season football games. Terrell Owens is a wide receiver for the Cowboys and he came up with his own line of shirts and handed them out to the team at training camp. Here is the website for the shirts. They said things like, iBlock, iSack, iRun, iPlay- all football terms and things that football players do. Well, I LOVED these shirts. I love T.O. and think he is great- he was super funny on Hard Knocks. So I told my husband I wanted a shirt that said iCook. Because that is what I do. Definitely not iRun... Then, a lightbulb went off- iCook!! That's it!! The name of the cooking blog!!! I finally found it, all thanks to T.O. (that's what they call Terrell Owens). So, my sweet husband surprised me and actually ordered me one of the shirts. I had to share with you. Here is my shirt and that is the story...
The front, iCook
the back, to please(it's t.o. to be like Terrell Owens initials, but it reads like the word to- that T.O., he's so clever...)
I Cook To Please!! I hope I am pleasing to you readers. Please feel free to leave a comment or suggestion anytime- whether I know you or not. That is the point of this blog- to reach anyone and everyone. Feel free to post a link to this blog from yours, I don't mind a bit!! I had in mind some recipe sharing when I started this blog- I have seen other cooking blogs that do a recipe swap, but I'm not so sure about all the details, so I need to do some research first.
Remember: giveaway coming soon.. I am so excited to be able to give you a little something. I will give you a hint: this gift keeps on giving...for a whole year!!!
