I love eating food. I love making food. So this section is a combo of food I make myself, and the awesome food I acquire from other places too.
I’ve always loved food. I love making it, I love eating it, I love receiving compliments on my concoctions… It’s my thing. When I’m happy I end up singing and dancing around the kitchen, making way more food than I need in my fridge. When I’m feeling upset, stressed, or depressed, I end up baking my ass off in the kitchen. It’s my safe place, my happy place, and woe upon the person that messes up my happy place.
I’ve had some interesting housemate situations over the 3 years I’ve lived out of the dorms in college. I’ve had housemates that pile up dishes with food in them, and don’t clean up after themselves even when their dishes start growing “things”… I’ve had housemates that leave sugary residue out to attract ants and don’t realize that cleaning might help the problem. I’ve had housemates that seem to not understand that they should respect other people’s belongings, misusing my baking equipment, blender, knife set, etc… And I can’t stand people who don’t know how to logically stack dishes in a dishwasher.
So when I eventually live on my own, I’m going to ban pretty much everyone except my mother (she’s cleaner than I am) from even setting foot in my beautiful, pristine, perfectly organized kitchen.
Obviously I’m not over this whole “housemates messing with my nicely ordered life” thing yet.
Pressing onward and upwards… Cooking just makes me happy, and I like to think that I come up with some really fantastic food – most of the time just off the top of my head. I love recipes, but I love adapting them to my own particular tastes more. So that’s what this is. My space to write down super delicious food recipes, articles about food, such as my pet peeve… People freaking out about salmonella and eggs, and any other food myths or food-related things blown way out of proportion by germ alarmists.
So lets see how this goes 🙂
