My desire to cook usually comes to me in inconsistent waves but lately it hasn't seemed to shut off or even falter slightly. The invigoration I get from looking up new recipes on the Internet is the same feeling once reserved only for mass amounts of online shopping. Could it BE? That cooking brings the same smile to my face as the perfect Betsey Johnson party dress?? I think so friends....I think so.
Let me be clear....I am NOT a chef. In fact, I don't even regard myself as someone who has natural tendencies in the kitchen. I'm just someone who loves the idea of cooking and hosting dinner parties. I'd like to push the envelope a bit and take myself out of my "10 dish rotation" comfort zone. I may win some (macadamia nut crusted halibut) and I will certainly lose some but gosh darn it I'm going to have a blast while I do.
So I'll continue being a guinea pig for those of us who aren't pros and prove that some recipes while they look complicated and impossible are right within our reach! I'll be sharing recipes as I make them and sharing my struggles and changes....which one's are MUST make and which ones to skip. Enjoy!
