"Cooking is like love.
It should be entered into with abandon
or not at all."
~Harriet van Horne
"Love is my religion.
Eating is a close second"
I am clearly NOT a chef.
Sadly, I possess neither the aptitude nor the discipline for that particular calling.
I just really, really,
The only thing I enjoy more than eating it, is sharing it.
So I encourage you to take these recipes and make them your own. Improve them with your own creativity. Be inspired by your own palate and whatever else is going on with you at the time.
And if you, too, are the sharing type, I'd love to hear how they turn out...
