For love of all things …….. culinary

Scroll down to content

I was not born a cook, nor was I born in the kitchen yet over the last couple years, I have developed a deep relationship with my kitchen space. I love cooking! I love to cook, and I love to scout for new recipes. There is just something therapeutic about starting a dish from scratch, and watching it blossom to life into a mouth-watering delicacy that people can’t get enough of.

And it is also this love of my kitchen that has earned me a pressure cooker, a rice cooker, a wine chiller and a host of other kitchen utensils over the last two Christmas’. Dont get me wrong, I love my gifts, but I think I’d rather have a skank dress or even some shoes that were Loubou-ed at home *shorrout to Mami Nou*, but yeah. Anyone who knows me, knows that I truly do love to cook, but it was not always love oo.

Pommes au Gratin …. the story behind this requires a seperate post

 I remember my very first foray into the kitchen like it was yesterday. I was about 8 or so, and I decided to make Spaghetti Bolognaise for dinner. I am not sure I knew exactly what to do, but I winged it either ways. Sadly, by the time I was done, there were enough dishes in the sink to fill a municipal landfill, and the kitchen was turned upside down. Anyways, as always daddy came to the rescue and saved the day by helping me do the dishes. Of course, he did impart some wisdom which I remember to this day: “Kitibo, wash and clean as you go”. A very basic statement that I hold dear to my heart. From pasta, I moved on to Quiche Lorraine, then to cakes and so on and so forth.  You get my drift

That being said, I do have to thank Lohi O of lohiscreations.blogspot.com for adding some more zest to my passion. I love her blog, and I am always on there looking for new recipes. Hopefully some day I get to work on a dish with her. Another food blogger I stalk daily is Ree from http://www.thepionerwoman.com. I love the simplicity with which she dsescribes her recipes, and the pictures she provides also help you to visualise your creation. You can also catch Ree on the Food Network on saturday mornings. Until then, be blessed and beautiful
