When I decided to stop pursuing being a chef, my relationship with food changed. For a short time in early 2011, I hated cooking, being the kitchen or even going to the grocery store. I think I may have been suffering from “culinary PTSD” but fortunately, this phase soon passed and I rediscovered the zen of being in the kitchen.
As we close out the year, I thought it would be nice to share the recipes that rekindled my love of being in the kitchen. None is too difficult, matter of fact one requires no cooking, but they all represent things I love to make, eat and share with friends…..
Vanilla Bean Frozen Custard
Sweet Potato, Red Onion & Fontina Galette
Portuguese Fish Stew
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Walnut Cookies
Cream of Broccoli Soup
Caldo Verde Soup
Braised Brussel Sprouts with Bacon & Parmesan
While I love all my recipes, you all made it pretty clear that you loved my recipe for chewy sugar cookies most. Guess y’all have a sweet tooth…..
Chewy Sugar Cookies
So did you try any of these recipes? If so, how did they turn out for you? I would love to know!
ps: Today is The Partner’s birthday……I will be making at least one of these recipes for him tonight!
