“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”
― Laurie Colwin
Wow, is that true or what??!! Funny, in my “about me” section, I never once mentioned that I love to cook and that it is a passion of mine. I think it’s just such a part of me that it’s the same as me not saying that I breathe air or that I have arms. But, anyone who knows me…or is a facebook friend of mine…knows I LOVE food and I LOVE to cook. (Yes, and I love to take pictures of it almost as much as I love to eat it! Don’t hate.)
There are many different reasons for my love of cooking and many different ways I like to cook. Some days it’s experimenting skinnying up a traditional dish and others it’s cooking for comfort with savory, rich sauces. No matter what, though, the way I feel when slipping off my shoes, throwing my hair up, having a great soundtrack in the background and a glass of wine going while mixing it up in the kitchen is completely at peace…no matter what life is throwing at me.
…Someone toss me an apron, would ya?
