People always ask me, how is it that I post a recipe almost 5 days a week on this blog for the past 7 years? Do you ever sleep?
The answer is: I must be crazy.
I cook early mornings when I am most creative, and then late at night, after 10 pm.
It's just my thing, 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.
The truth is, cooking relaxes me.
Quiet kitchen. No music. No tv.
Just me and the food.
I don't always have the time to write out the recipe, and I certainly don't have a food studio for photographing all the food I prepare.
My studio is my kitchen counter in front of the window in the natural daylight by the coffee maker, or if the light is right, in front of my wood pile outside on a tree stump.
I have never claimed to be a chef, just a home cook.
I'm not a nutritionist, but have good sense when it comes to what to eat and what NOT to eat.
You can take what I say with a grain of salt (hopefully, Maldon sea salt).
Why do I blog? (I hate that word, it sounds like BLOB).
I do it because I like to share.
I love food and love people.
I love cooking and watching people eat and enjoying the things I prepare.
Food is like love.
I love food.
I work for food, cause the pay stinks.
I wish I had gone to culinary school when I was 17 instead of college which did nothing for me.
It's never too late, but at 50 years old, I don't want to be the oldest one in the classroom, and the one without tattoos.
Why do I blog?
Because I love it.
It's my creative outlet and gives me something to look forward to on a daily basis.
Thanks for reading me.
I am happy to know you for 7 years.
