I’m going to write a cookbook. It’s going to be a wonderful, hold-in-your-hands sort of thing. You’ll flip through the pages, smiling to yourself as you look at photos, read recipes, and decide which one you’re going to cook first.
I might call it Veggie Love: A Celebration of Simple & Delicious Meatless Recipes. Or I might call it something else. What I call it isn’t as important as what’ll be inside of it. Page after page of flavorful, soul-warming food. Veggies, fruits, grains, cheese, herbs, spices…coming together in beautiful ways.
It’ll have curries, inspired by India and Thailand. West African Peanut Stew over Wild Rice. Pumpkin, Kabocha Squash & Chickpea Chili. Gourmet Mac & Cheese with Swiss Cheese and Spinach. Enchilada Casserole. Vegetarian Tater Tot Hotdish. Kohlrabi and Chickpea Greek Salad. Kale, Apple & Cheddar Quesadillas.
Gosh, I love cooking.
You know what else I love? These two:
Jack & Norah, my niece and nephew. Who knew kids could be so awesome?
Anyway, back to this cookbook thing…I want you to help me. Ask me about the process. Make suggestions. Tell me what you’d like to see.
I want this to be a back & forth sort of thing. I want to keep listening. I want to incorporate your ideas, your thoughts, your struggles, and your triumphs with cooking.
That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Making better choices, being happier with the food we eat and the way it makes us feel. Spending time with the people we love, cooking and eating and talking and laughing.
What could be better than that?
