I must admit…
I must admit…
*I am a cook, but I am by no means a photographer. I only take between 2 to 4 photos of each dish I feature. My husband likes his food really hot, and I don’t like to wait to eat when dinner is ready.
*I can’t wait for oatmeal. I miss the flavors of banana mixed with coconut, peanut butter, and oats. Fall is coming!
*I am not self taught. My mom taught me a lot about cooking from a young age. I remember running in the house after dance or whatever activity I was into at the time and heading up the stairs to shower, asking my mom what was for dinner on the way. After I showered fast fast I would jet down the stairs 2 steps at a time to help my mom with dinner. I loved the simple tasks of peeling cucumbers, even though it took me twice the time as my mom, and setting the table. I loved helping bread chicken breasts or check on the pasta. I loved helping my mom (and my nonna) because it was girls’ bonding time, and I was part of the special club.
*I can’t wait for Foodbuzz Festival, Year 2. I had the time of my life last year. I especially can’t wait to eat and buy some Frog Hollow Farm pears. They were the juiciest pears I’ve ever tasted.
*I don’t think about my recipes too much. I don’t plan too much. I am probably inspired for about 3 recipes a week using the techniques mentioned here, and the rest come from throwing items together from the pantry and fridge. I only share the ones I really want you to know about, even if it means I skip a day or two of blogging here and there.
*I give the appearance of being a super planner and organizing my life really well. In reality, I am lazy. I like simple, quick recipes because they are perfect for a lazy girl.
*In the same regard, I like healthy recipes because I like to eat a lot. I am definitely a volume eater (like many of you!) and would rather have a huge salad than just a little bowl of risotto.
*I am watching The Simpsons right now. And I’m laughing hysterically.
*I still have my Rancho Gordo Borlotti beans from last November. They are so valuable I’ve been afraid to use them. Ideas?
