Buon giorno Cari Amici!!!!
(That's italian for "Good Morning Dear Friends"... and no, I don't really speak italiano. Looked it up at translation.com.. BUT, I DO think Amici is an adorable word for friends!)
Anyhoo, I have to tell you all..
I'm not exactly sure if it's a new phase in life...
or I've just suddenly woke up from a long sleep.
BUT, I have a brand stinkin' new love.
But not JUST cooking, I'm cooking everything in sight.
...everything from strange Italian noodles, to warm & wintry soups, to traditional pies.. to flipping fruit-filled flapjacks.
I think I'm acting like a kid in a candy store.
I'm not sure why... but, I find I simply adore it.
I've also discovered I love, love, love cookbooks.
You know, the real ones.
Not surfing online... but like, hardback cookbooks.
I'm obsessed ya'll.
I've decided... after I concur all of my dreams at present.
Someday, Lord willing... When Jonah is grown.
I would completely love to take some culinary classes.
And who knows what the future may hold!
Gen?? SERIOUSLY? COOKING???!!!
I know. I know.
All thumbs in the kitchen, right?
But...... It's like a new found love.
I actually think my thumbs have learned to work a little bit!
I adore the smell of fresh basil.
I love cooking spicy meats.. and flaky fish.
I have NO idea whats gotten into me.
I'm simply pouring over cookbooks...
Digging out the aprons..
Mommy/Cook has hit home..
And I'm amazed at how much fun it is!
Cooking has went from being a chore... to something I love.
I'm constantly "whipping something up"...
I would like to hear your thoughts...
Recipes, Fave Cookbook, Ingredient?...
I'm all ears.. Or.. rather eyes.
....entree pictures by moi to follow.
Good painting is like good cooking,
it can be tasted, but not explained.
