New Name!

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins from Food.com
Welcome to Delicious as it Looks (formerly Cooking and Cocktails with Dianne)! I had this great idea for a blog name about a month after I came up with the Cooking and Cocktails title. I decided to ignore it for a while, but the name kept making an appearance in my brain. I knew it was a lot better name than what I had just changed it to, but I didn't want to confuse people. Then an article came out about me and my blog in a local magazine (which turned out awesome!), so then I felt like I was stuck with it. But still, Delicious as it Looks kept popping up in my head. That was the name I wanted, the name I could commit to for the long haul. Plus, it was a lot shorter. I had to have it! So here we are.

The name may have changed, but I'll still talk about the same stuff: food, food, and more food. I did make some resolutions (gasp!) this year, and one of them is, natch, eating healthier. I already have a pretty good diet, but I eat too many sweets. That, and I need to work on portion-control. So I'll be concentrating on healthy, non-sweet recipes for a while. Don't be surprised if a few cookies or muffins show up though. They have a tendency to do that in my life. I don't know how it happens, just *poof* and they're there. Like the ones pictured above. Sigh......

Another resolution is to diversify. I'm going to explore new online resources and new magazines for recipes. I'm really excited about it. I've already signed up with Food.com (love it!) and my sister-in-law got me a subscription to Taste of Home magazine for Christmas (love it too!). I can't wait to get started making recipes and sharing them with you. Welcome!
