What I really enjoy about blogging, vlogging, cooking, and writing is the freedom to do anything and everything I want. If I want to try a new recipe, I can go ahead and do just that. I don't need anyone's permission to fumble around in the kitchen or to make a silly video and publish it. Just pushing that "publish" button on my posts or on my youtube videos is quite a thrill.
I also enjoy music, and although I am not the most talented musician, I enjoy the freedom of writing and playing whatever I want. In college, I was surrounded by much better musicians who all picked up the guitar quite easily. Playing the guitar has always been a challenge for me, which is why I pretty much write songs consisting of only three chords.
However, whether I'm playing a song comprised of three chords or cooking a dish comprised of three ingredients, I can be proud of the finished product that I created. Making up songs for the fun of it reminds me of the creative genius, Dana Carvey. I do a parody of one of his bits and feature a recipe for the best broccoli of your life in the following video:
