Frequently asked questions!
**If you have a question you would like to know the answer to, email me at thejoyofthejoyofcooking (at) hotmail (dot) com***
So how much weight have you gained since starting?
None! My personal opinion is that since the food in Joy is so filling (full fat, etc) that you don't eat TONS of it. It also makes great leftovers which means NO fast food!
I bet this has been really expensive, right?
No, the food in Joy is pretty simple. Once you start cooking a lot of recipes out of it, the same ingredients are used over and over, so it's not very expensive. And more cooking=less eating out=less expensive.
I think I read your blog but then I seem to miss entries. What's up?
I date the blogs when I actually made the food. Sometimes it's a couple of weeks ago--so the blogs show up as old but are actually new. It's not a problem in most blog readers! I also have a bad habit of writing several blogs at once, so if you only read the most recent blog, you might miss others.
Do you have contests?
I do and I hope to have more!
I am fully intending on stealing your pictures for my blog/presentation/whatever. Is that okay?
No. It's fine if you credit my website for the picture. If you don't, it's wrong.
I heard you went to Japan. Did you blog about it?
Heck yeah, I blogged about it! Look under keyword "Japan".
When do you think you'll finish all the recipes?
About fifty years from now. I'll probably be cooking the final Joy recipes for my grandchildren.
What edition of TJOC are you using?
I'm using the 2006 edition. I truly hope to finish this before the publish the next version!
What do you consider "vegetarian" versus "vegan"?
I go the ova-lacto route when I think of vegetarian--no meat (red or otherwise) or fish but eggs and milk products are okay. Vegan means no animal products.
