|Time to cook!|
So I have decided to start yet another new blog to add to my repertory of other blogs however this one is significantly different than the rest. This blog is devoted to healthy cooking that actually tastes good. In 2011 I had to dramatically change my diet due to certain food sensitivities, since that time I have been cooking without gluten, refined sugars, MSG, cows milk, preservatives and minimally processed foods. The biggest challenge was...what in the world do I eat??? Followed by...how can I make food that does not taste like cardboard?? Next question was when I go out where can I eat? I had time to get this pretty well figured out over the past 3 years.
During that time I have actually come to enjoy cooking quite a bit, one of my favorite things is cooking for others along with conducting food experiments in my home test kitchen. What I like most about cooking for others is when they tell me how delicious everything is and then when I tell them that there is no gluten, refined sugars, preservatives etc....the look of surprise on everybody face is priceless!
When I start off with a food experiment sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad, the people that I live with are my guinea pigs. By the time a recipe reaches the blog or a guest it has all the kinks worked out, it is thoroughly the bomb and has full on flavor! Over time I started having friends, family and strangers even ask for my recipes, which brings me to this blog and the reason why I started it. At first I did not relish the idea of starting yet another blog but I did need a better vehicle to deliver my recipes to the people that were asking for them. So after lots of time and consideration...I present to you: Time to cook - a healthy food blog.
Stay tuned for my next blog post which contains my very first recipe: Ginger Bread with Lemon Honey Glaze coming soon!
