#LoveIsInDaBlog Day 7 – Fondness

So, love doesn’t necessarily have to be about people, right?  Or maybe I can tie it in, somehow.  We’ll just see how this goes.

I have a relative fondness for cooking, but it isn’t something I think I’m very good at.  I’ve never been that person who can throw in a little bit of this and that and have something magically happen that is called good food.  Nope, I’m a recipe sort of gal.  I think that’s why I like baking so much.  There’s a science to it, I’m told, and not only that, something sweet and delicious comes out in the end.

My sister loves cooking.  She stayed at my house for a weekend during the summer, and I got to watch her cook salmon and some potatoes and some rather yummy vegetables without a recipe.  She literally tried a few things, threw them out because they were gross and started over again.  I simply don’t have the patience.  I also think there’s a sort of knowing which items work well together, you know?

I do love cooking shows, though.  I watch Chopped, Top Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, Master Chef and pretty much anything else you can think of.  I think I like the competition aspect of the shows more than I like the cooking.  However, during Master Chef this summer, they actually had little tutorials on cooking different dishes.  I actually learned how to make scrambled eggs the Gordon Ramsey way, and I have to say that they are delicious.  My kids hate them because they are too soft, and I give them crap because they like overcooked eggs.  It’s a good time all around.

My siblings and I are getting together in a few weeks, and my sister said she wanted to throw a mystery basket together and try to do our version of Chopped.  I told her that I would put the baskets together and judge, but I had no interest in cooking, whatsoever.  She’s going to try and talk more people into it.

So, there you have it.  My short little account of my fondness for cooking.  I suppose it’s better than snubbing my nose at it.

  1. I agree. Fondness is broad. Right now I’m chilling at a lounge having two things I am very fond of – cigars and wine. Love it.

    It can be hard to engage in the things we are fond of while balancing work life and such. I envy those whose work revolves around their passion (chefs are a prime example).

    Hope you have fun with your siblings.
