Cooking

2 Aug

I wish I was one of those people that can take a handful of seemingly random ingredients, and turn them into the most amazing dish, but I’m not.  Don’t get me wrong, I can cook.  Actually, I think I’m a very good cook, but I need someone else to write the recipe.  Does that just make me a very good copycat someone who is excellent at following directions?

I love food blogs, love them.  To me, most of these people are artists.  They not only cook these amazing dishes, but more importantly, they are able to capture the flavors in their pictures.   There are times when I want to, lick the screen, stick my fork through the computer and indulge in all the deliciousness. 

Cookbooks are another love of mine.  I could spend hours flipping through the pages, taking in the pictures, and reading the recipes. 

There is something therapeutic about cooking.   For how ever long it takes to create the dish, it’s like a temporary getaway.  From the time I start the prep work, till the time I plate the delicious dish, my focus is on the cooking.  The terrible day I may have had seems to escape my thoughts, and it’s wonderful. Of course  my favorite part is the taste testing through out the process, which is clearly strictly for “quality control” purposes!
