These standards have had me yelling "It's FROZEN! Take it back!" to undeserving wait staff at Swiss Chalet. But they have also inspired in me a desire to cook. It's intermittent, I'll admit. More like a recreational activity than a necessity at this point. Do I love to cook? Not really. Do I find it relaxing to "get down" in the kitchen after a full day at work? Certainly not! But I do love to express myself artistically--whether it's through getting half a dozen or more piercings, writing short fiction and poetry, OR cooking.
So when I have the energy, the time, (the clean kitchen!), I absolutely love to take on Ramsay, Michael Smith, Jamie Oliver, et al! And if I find a recipe I love, I swear to repeat it for company....unfortunately, I usually break my promise and company become my guinea pigs. If I'm successful in a new recipe, I'm ecstatic, but I immediately want to move on to the next challenge.
With that in mind, I hope you don't mind following my wild, sporadic, exotic, and exciting cooking adventures! I promise I'll never post any recipes except those that have been successful!
