The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. I really do believe this old adage. Growing up, I loved to watch Mama and Grandmama cook. I learned so much from them, and then I expanded my knowledge by Food Network and experimenting with different flavors. By experimenting and learning what spices are best used with what and how t blend flavors, I can often eat a dish once and then replicate it. My cooking skills is something that I take pride in, even though I know pride is one of the seven deadly sins.
I love cooking for others. I have had the tremendous joy this week to be able to cook for my boyfriend. We are getting to spend time with one another while I am house sitting. My boyfriend makes me so happy. I've been able to to cook each night for him, and he's so appreciative of my cooking. It seems to make him happy, which is always my goal when I cook for someone.
I've hear all my life what a good husband I will make, but when I cook, I do so because I love it. I truly do love to cook, and I love to experiment and am especially happy when trying something new pays off. I don't know if any of you love cooking, but it's a wonderful pastime. And most importantly, it makes other people happy.
