I hate recipes. 
But I love cooking. 

To me cooking is like art. You start with a blank canvas and end up with a masterpiece. The ability to mix ingredients in a way that provides satisfaction to someone else is a satisfying skill.

And another passion I have. 

Just like any other form of art, cooking needs an audience. I personally like to cook for my family and friends. I try to mix whatever I have in my fridge to create something new and delicious. 

Following a strict recipe takes all the fun OUT of cooking for me. The process of experimenting with ingredients and making use of what you have available to create something delicious is what cooking is about. I believe that is where the real creativity lies.  

Lately, I have started following a low carbohydrate, high fat type of diet for health reasons. It is exciting to create a brand new array of meals. It is fun experimenting with carbohydrate alternatives and yet keeping meals delicious.  

If any of you would like to experiment with cooking Ethiopian food or eating at a restaurant, I recommend you try a dish called TIBS. If you are vegetarian - try SHIRO.

    @keni Great to hear that you love cooking! I'm a chef by trade and feel disappointed at how many people don't cook for themselves these days. However, it does keep me employed when I am working...

      @hannahdelap - I am jealous. I wish I could claim to be a chef... I am still a beginner since I am only good at the few things I enjoy eating myself. If I had the time and money, I may go to cooking school and learn the basics properly.
      I hope to open a cafe one day. :)
