Envisioning

I have been passionate about food since I was born. The first thought in my head upon waking? “What’s mom making for dinner tonight?” I spent much of my youth poring over cookbooks and time-worn recipe cards, envisioning each creation as made by my own hands, with my own additions, changes and flair.

Envisioning was as far as I got in those days, as I frequently sliced my fingers, set stovepans on fire, and lost countless kitchen gadgets to the trash.

So, instead of cooking, I would appear by my mom’s side every time she was cooking and baking, asking what I could do to help (or lick, if it happened to be brownie batter) but pretty much just being in her way. Yet learning all the time.
She taught me that from scratch is the best way, and vegetables are our friends. That we eat.

Now I am a grown up kid, have my own kitchen, and nothing brings me such pleasure as a meal well made and much enjoyed.
The first thought in my mind now upon waking? “What am I making for dinner tonight?”

So here you have a girl devoted to Making Food. Eating Food. And telling you all about it.
