So, I'm starting this blog for two reasons: (1) family and friends frequently ask me for recipes, and I want an easy way to share them with everyone. The problem is, I tend to do most of my cooking without recipes. I've done it enough over the last several years that I just throw stuff together without measuring. Unfortunately, this way of cooking prevents me from replicating recipes and sharing them with people, especially people who don't instinctively know how much soy sauce to add to some stir-fried greens or how long to cook them before they're overcooked. So, (2) I want to document my cooking so that I pay more attention to what it is I do. Also, I love cooking so much I want to burst, and sometimes I get so excited about something I made that I take pictures of it. With this blog I can do what I do without feeling like a loser. Enjoy!
