The name of this blog comes from my wife, who introduced me to the phrase "Fork and Spoon," as a workplace appropriate swear substitute for ... well, you can figure it out. I used the phrase for the name of the blog mostly because it was a something personal that tied into food, but also because cooking can be frustrating at times, and does occasionally lead to swearing. Although, I can't say that I tend use the workplace-appropriate version.
For me, cooking can be frustrating, and lead to swearing, because it's one of the few things that I'm passionate enough about to warrant such a reaction. Ideally, I'd like every meal I cook to be perfect, unfortunately things don't always turn out that way. This was one of those times.
