My name is Kristina, and I’m the brains for better or for worse at www.OnBlank.com. There are so many cooking blogs that feature well-designed kitchens and beautiful photos taken with incredible cameras. Me? I have a day job. I am not rich. I am a terrible klutz. I try hard, but the reality is that my dishes tend to be giant, explosive disasters as I struggle to advance from an awful cook to come out on top (I'm aiming for mediocre). But I am passionate in my failures, and I hope that there is something to gain in taking yourself less seriously, cooking even when you are doomed, saving money when you do have successes, and finding the funny in constantly setting off the smoke alarms (though my neighbors may disagree).
