New blog title

I just changed the name of this blog, as I wanted something that would complement my soon-to-launched website, which I'm calling El's Kitchen. Not sure I'm going to keep Side Dish. For now, I'm just trying it on to see if I like it. So far it's my favorite of all the food/kitchen/eating-rated ideas I've come up with. The ones it beat out include the too-cliche What's Cooking and The Main Course, the nearly pornographic Hot Dish, nonsequiturs like Melted Cheese, Spicerack, Scrambled Eggs, Tossed Salad, and Coffee and Cake, and a few that just seemed too anemic, like Fresh Ideas and Table Talk.

Feel free to share your opinions--good, bad or indifferent. Of course, I'll send up a flare when ellenmeister.com is up and running.

Side dish is perfect.

Side Dish has a certain alternate semantic sound to it, which is perfect, as Susan said.

But there's always room for jello.

Yeah, I'm really liking side dish. It's very "you"...and there's nothing I like more than dishing in your kitchen. Just wish you lived closer!

Digging "side dish" very much!

Side Dish sounds good...particularly since spelling HORS Dyovres is so hard for us guys (:
