I've actually been working on it for some time now, but I finally feel like it's time to officially debut my blog to the IXDA community:

If you get a chance, check out http://www.edibleusable.com - my blog about usability, cooking and eating. I know it sounds like a bit of a mash up, but I'm hoping it works.

Any thoughts, ideas, comments and suggestions are welcome and appreciated!

I LOVE your blog. Simply love the concept of what you are doing. This has
been an issue that has been on my mind for a long time because I think there
is a lot of similarlity between cooking/recipes/users and design/users. For
example, when I visited Sunset Magazine recently at their open house, they
described how they develop recipes and user test them in their test kitchen
(does this sound familiar?!). Also, I think that magazines/restaurants have
similar challenges introducing new things as creators of new digital
experiences have.

How do magazines create new popular recipes when people like cooking old
standby comfort foods? How do restaurants create buzz and a return
customers? Although I don't think the problems are identical, I think there
is definitely a lot of crossover.

Thanks for putting this blog together!
