Some people throw themselves into a hobby. Knitting, painting, scrapbooking... I choose to cook. I like to think of cooking as a means to an end. Now, I don’t just mean whipping up some Hamburger Helper between swim practice and Zumba, I mean researching the perfect recipe, tweaking it to be my own and making magic on the LG.
Cooking for myself and my family is more than just a necessity. I truly enjoy it. Now, that doesn’t mean that I wake up every morning, tie on an apron and start taking orders. No way! But I do enjoy the happiness that a tall stack of pancakes or a dish of steaming hot enchiladas brings my 2 boys! Nigella Lawson once said, when asked what she thought of a particular dish on Iron Chef, that if the food brings her pleasure to eat then it is good.
