The matchbook girl… mixes a mean cocktail. Are y’all familiar with Matchbook Magazine? A self-proclaimed “field guide to a charmed life,” it’s a digital magazine, and a treat I eagerly anticipate reading every month. Fresh and witty, it manages to combine the polish of a more traditional print magazine with the immediacy and relevance of a blog.
I think it’s time for a small confession. I toyed with starting a food blog for at least a solid year or two before penning (typing?) the first post here. Looking back it seems silly, but not in the least bit surprising, to have waited that long to do something I’ve grown to enjoy so much. I am, and always have been, ruled by a frustrating mixture of perfectionism, procrastination and self-doubt. Putting forth anything into the world that’s short of my admittedly narrow and stringent view of perfection can be agonizingly difficult, almost painful.
