Remember when we were kids and everything seemed so darn easy? When did cooking become more than simply playtime in the kitchen? When did it stop being okay to play dress-up with aprons and create new inventions with flour, sugar and (green) food coloring?
I don’t want to grow up.
So, I’ve decided it’s time to get back to the basics. Yeah, we might still have taxes, bad haircuts, car payments, broken windows and bills, but if you start thinking of cooking using a child’s mind, you’ll always have an instant escape.
Have no idea where to start? Let me refresh your memory.
It’s usually best to just use your fingers.
Sugar and butter make even green vegetables taste good.
Licking the spoon is always necessary.
Great pasta dough starts with a volcano.
Don’t wear wear white in the kitchen. It is, on the other hand, perfectly acceptable to wear cute pink aprons from Anthropologie and the occasional pair of heels.
And finally, don’t attempt to try on old wetsuits from 2007 after feasting on fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and coleslaw.
You’ll just have to trust me on that one.
Over and out.
