Thirty-something single woman with a web operations management job (yawn) who likes to come home and create something tangible and consumable.
Unofficial Cooking Manifesto(Although more official now because I wrote it down. Please understand that I fully expect to change my mind and to break my own rules at my earliest convenience.)
- Only cook for yourself, because you never have to compromise and if it is inedible you are the only one who suffers.
- Never make the same recipe twice. Life is too short to eat the same thing over and over again. (make limited exceptions for things like favorite holiday cookies)
- Stick to the outside edges of the grocery store as much as possible. If you can’t pick it up and recognize which part of a plant or animal it came from you probably shouldn’t eat it. You should not have to read the label and have a degree in chemistry to understand what you are putting into your body.
- If the package and/or the commercial says it is good for you… bulls**t. They just want you to buy it. Carrots are good for you; no commercials and no packages at all.
***A manifesto is a public declaration of principles and intentions, often political in nature. However, manifestos relating to religious belief are generally referred to as a creed. Manifestos may also be life stance-related.
