Lynn from OinK

Hello! And thank you for visiting my blog!  Basically what you should know about me is that I am a law school graduate from UNC who decided in my last year of law school to begin cooking.  That decision quickly turned into a passion/obsession, as did my obsession with food blogging, food photography, cookbooks, and pretty much anything else that had to do with food!

So here you go, a law-themed blog/website that puts the LAW in blawg!  Ok sorry, I know it’s not spelled that way, but why not?  It was worth a shot.

All categories can be found on the left-hand side of the main page.  Archives can be found there as well. All recipes can also be found in the Recipe Index tab at the top of the page (still working out the plug-in for this so please bear with me).

I will have a couple of different recurring themes for you, my jury, to enjoy:
In the world of law, different causes of action are composed of “elements.”  You can’t have a successful claim without all of the elements, just as you cannot make a meal without using ingredients.  In the spirit of keeping this a blawg, I will refer to my ingredients as “The Elements.”  The instructions will be referred to as “Procedure” and at the end of each recipe, I will have “The Verdict” and while hopefully all of the verdicts are good ones, it would go against my ethical duties as a lawyer to lie, and so I will be quite honest in this section, and will tell you if it did not go as planned.  All of my disasters (and yes, there are a few) will be grouped into what I will call “Trial and Errors.”

“The Docket”:  These will be my weekly posts (most likely on Sundays or Mondays) that give you a little peek into the life of the Attorney in an Apron, and what kinds of fun things are happening in my life that week (sometimes they are not that fun but still I can put a positive spin on most anything!)


*Coming Soon*: I plan to do weekly Tort(e)s on “Torte Tuesdays”… I call it a Tort(e) because it has multiple meanings:
(1) a Tort is a “wrongful act . . . that results in injury to another person, property, reputation or the like.”*  You don’t like the sound of that?  Yeah, I don’t either and perhaps this was why it was my worst grade in law school…

(2) a Torte, with an “e” is “a rich cake, especially one containing little or no flour.”*  Yes, that sounds much better!

(3) “A torta (the plural is torte) is a pie, usually a savory one, at least in the countries across the Mediterranean—consisting of a filling (often based on vegetables) enclosed in thin dough and baked in an oven or cooked over an open fire.”–Jovina Cooks Italian

It cannot be a coincidence that there are torts in law books and tortes in cookbooks, and therefore I find this to be a sign that I should make weekly Tort(e)s.  Any complaints from the jury box?  I didn’t think so.


Easy recipes will be classified as Fee SIMPLE.  Each Friday I will feature a Fee SIMPLE recipe on what shall forever be known as Fee SIMPLE Friday. *Coming Soon*


Present Sense Impressions—These little nuggets will contain my daily musings, like good finds on Pinterest, recipes I’m drooling over, and other things that I’m generally loving lately.  They will be published occasionally (hopefully about once a week).


In the comments section, that is your opportunity to weigh in as The Jury.  Did you try it? Did you like it? Hate it? Hate me? (hopefully not that one).  But this is your chance to cast your vote!
