Whats in a name?

Back when this whole thing started not too long ago, it was meant as a way for me to share my love for cooking and baking. It really stemmed from seeing the blog of one of my best friends. She began a blog to share her journey through pregnancy. I thought blogging would be fun. The truth is, however, I had no idea what I would share. My husband and I currently have no children and don't lead the craziest lives. What would I have to offer the blogging world?
So, it occurred to me that I could share my passion for food. I thought I would share some recipes, and move on. Then it happened, I stumbled on this cooking related blog, that somehow led me here. Jennifer is a bit of a blogging mentor. Her blog is amazing and you will want to be her friend after reading. You will also be totally jealous because she writes so well that you feel like you are having coffee with her and she is telling the story to you and only you. Her blog introduced me to all sorts of other blogs, like this one. I think Emily and I would be crafting pals if we lived near other. Through all of these blogs, I realized that maybe I had more than just recipes to share and when she started writers workshop, I discovered a whole new way to express myself. Through all this, blogging has become quite therapeutic for me. I am loving blogging more and more every day.
So, here is my dilemma - Should I change my blog name and address? The recipes are still going to be a constant, however, I think other things will continue to flow into this blog as well.
I need to know what you think! Part of me thinks it would be fun (I have thought of names), and part of me is worried that I should stick with how I started out. Truthfully, I am wondering if I am limiting myself with the name. See what I mean, I can't decide.
I am asking you. There is a poll on my sidebar. Vote, tell your friends to vote. Let your voice be heard! Heck, I won't even make you register!

THANK YOU!!! How sweet of you! I can't tell you how much that compliment meant to me! I am sooooo happy to help anyone on their way to a love of blogging---which can translate to a love of writing---which will forever leave your 'mark' upon the world!

I don't know how I feel about your name change....maybe just a sub-title that lets people know that you're more than recipes. I mean--LOTS of stuff happens in the kitchen---cooking, laughing, talking, dancing :)....

You for sure need to take a visit to Shannon at Eight Crazy designs or Darcy at Graphically Designing though and get a blog design that LOOKS like YOU :)! YOu will love yourself for it ;)!

Good luck! No matter what you call yourself....I'll keep reading!

Lots of love,
