Hi my name is Jennifer and I love food, and I love to cook.
My obsession with food started young. I just loved to cook as a child. Cracking that egg, helping Mom make cookies. Not just because I wanted to eat the cookies, but sure that was part of it.
I still love the process today. Getting out the ingredients. Making sure I have everything I need before I start… wait who am I talking about…. I only cook that way half the time. Some of the time, I have a spoon in one hand and a spice shaker in the other, all the while my eye is on the fresh herbs in pot at the end of the counter.
So ingredients… get them together. Have everything ready to go. Seriously, it makes the cooking experience easier and less frustrating. I lot of people actually don’t enjoy cooking. I have to tell you, I do find that hard to believe. I accept that it’s not fun for some. I will say that I secretly think it’s not fun for some because they haven’t learned to make it fun.
As a cook that loves food because you might like to eat something that tastes good, I do think experimenting and expanding our own sense of smell and taste is important. Smell food, taste food, and try out new flavors. The old saying that if it grows together it goes together is usually right most of the time. I said most, not all of the time. So smell, taste and try. And most of all LOVE the food you eat.
