My Cooking Story
I have only been really cooking seriously for the last 16 years. I was terrified by the thought of cooking, it seemed so hard. I use to go to restaurants and think it was a magical world that only the chosen few with talent could create. Then I came to the realization, that creativity in theater, fashion, design, or art has all the same elements. A sense of adventure and combining ingredients, whether that be fabric, paint, wood, or any other medium, into something new.
With my newfound realization, I jumped into the kitchen with both feet and never looked back.
I have notebooks and pads in almost every drawer in my kitchens and I write down everything a try, cross-out that which does not work, adjust, and when it ready I try it out on husband and friends. I realized that the best cooking is about fresh food, the best ingredients, the joy of cooking, and sharing your creation with friends, family, and others. Cooking is a social activity, it the original social media.
