I’ve started a new blog, A Pinch of This & A Dash of That. Friends often ask me for recipes but I don’t really cook by a set recipe. It’s hard to share dishes and I love to share food. What I often do is invite them over and I teach them. That way they can see how much I put in or how long it takes for the food to be done. Once they have made it twice it becomes their dish. They can claim all the praise.
Friends encouraged me to do cooking videos. I didn’t really want to. I know that’s hard to believe especially since I pretend to have a cooking show when I’m by myself. Believe it or not, I was a little nervous.
Cooking for me is creative. I love to watch cooking shows and then attempt what I see by trial and error. Everyone has different taste buds. Some people like salt and others don’t. Some people like cheddar cheese and others mozzarella.
It doesn’t matter what you like, you can always substitute an ingredient you don’t like for one you do. I usually like to make a recipe first the way it was intended, then I can have fun and change things up a bit.
I love cooking outside the box. I enjoy seeing what’s in my cabinets, putting it together and seeing if my vision and the actual taste match up.
If you’re a food lover, I hope you enjoy my new blog. Comments are encouraged and questions welcomed.
