I am the poster-girl for gluttony. My love for food exceeds my craving for all other luxuries in life (well almost…) My synapses are trained to connect everything in life to a particular food item–anything from homesickness, PMS, moron-training-frustration or celebration-for-selling-that-car. I feel lucky that my Mom and now, my husband understand this.
Well I am not just a lover of food, my cravings are rather strong AND particular. I am also a terribly picky eater.
When I first moved out of home, my weekends were burning bad on badly cooked eggs, it was like a wake-up call. Either I had to learn to cook (well) or learn to like what I cooked. I did the former.
I am a (erstwhile) food scientist, but make no mistake, I am no chef extraordinaire…no sir! These posts here are just some of my keepsake culinary exploits from mostly a pre-Pinterest era: recipes collected and tried, a few serendipitous short-cuts and quickies, lessons learned that I come back to often. In short, here is how I appease my everyday hunger in a little less everyday fashion.
