Why Did I Start Cooking?

Why Did I Start Cooking?

Cooking was not always something that came natural to me. 

As a child, I naturally wanted to be in the kitchen.

I loved the smell of food.

I was curious about the connection of food from farm to table.

I enjoyed using my hands to create things.

Naturally, I loved watching my mom cook and wanted to learn myself.

However, my mom always shooed me out of the kitchen because of her own fears (My dad worked late so he was never home to cook).

Chocolate is a delicious delicacy that has been around for a long time. It used to be a delicious sweet treat that was made by the most pure cacao plant with some sugar to cut some of the bitterness, and something special added to it like nuts or marshmallows. The cacao plant got in the hands of greedy corporations. Why settle for refined chocolate when you can make your own with 6 unrefined ingredients and have it taste rich and delicious, just like the refined version. Find my recipe for delicious chocolate <"link_to_recipe"> here!

Ramen has been a childhood and college staple for a long time. Who wouldn't want to get a quick, easy meal for less than a dollar?! Do you feel like Ramen is satisfying while you're eating it, but leaves you starving afterwards? I used to eat that stuff at least on a weekly basis before I realized the havoc it was causing to my body.

Food Substitution Blog: Mac & Cheese

Food Substitution Blog: Mac & Cheese

If you were a child in the 1990's, you grew up hearing the jingle of Kraft Mac & Cheese. It's the cheesiest, right?! It sounds like a kid-friendly food we all have known to enjoy for decades. Well, if you look at the ingredients, there is not one ounce of real cheese in this product, but instead contains Yellow 5 and other preservatives to give it the cheese texture and flavor.
