Long Live Foodies

Rebecca and I were recently married, and like most newlyweds, we are busy integrating our separate lives into one life together. She has taken charge of turning the house into a home and has done an amazing job. Thanks to her keen eye for design, our things are playing well together. I like to think of Rebecca as an artist and our home as her palette. It is shaping up to be a warm and comfortable place to live.

We are both foodies and one of the wonderful things we discovered is our love of cookbooks. As it turns out, we have 70 of them. I know, know, you can get any recipe online these days, but there is something special about thumbing through a cook book don’t you think?

One of the things Rebecca did with our cook books was dig them out and prominently display them on the counter. This got us thinking about the great food inside and we decided to choose a book each week and prepare one of the recipes inside.

We love thumbing through old cook books.

We love thumbing through old cook books.

I know it sounds suspiciously like Julie & Julia, the 2009 film starring Amy Adams and Meryl Streep. Yes, we both saw and loved the movie about Julie Powell’s struggle to cook all the recipes in Julia Child’s cook book, but what the heck, it’s all about the food for us.

So come join us at the Daily Tao Blog for a weekly dose of Robert and Rebecca’s adventures in food.

As long as Robert can remember, he wanted to be a writer. Like many young people who are called to a creative life, he had to contend with well-meaning friends and family members who discouraged it. While Robert spent most of his career as a successful attorney, he never forgot his dream. In the meantime, he pursued many other interests and was fortunate enough to have some amazing adventures. One of those interests was martial arts. He spent many years studying and teaching Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Robert promised his teacher he would someday write that book he always wanted to write and began to develop a story idea that pitted a young lawyer/martial artist against a powerful pharmaceutical company in a conflict over a miracle cure. The hero wants to insure the cure is freely available to everyone, but powerful enemies want to suppress it. The Nostrum Conspiracy is Robert’s second book. His first book, Naked Tao, breaks a few rules.

Robert has been blessed with an amazing life and it just keeps getting better. He lives in Louisville with his beautiful wife and children. "Bad Bob" is a tongue-in-cheek nick name bestowed upon him by his co-workers when he showed up at his law firm one day on a new Harley. Robert is a martial arts master and has taught over 600 students.
