1 thing about me that I am not proud of is the fact that I don’t like sharing my good recipes. More so when people commend me of a good dish I made, that signals me to keep it all the more. I don’t know, but life has its way of teasing that after you’ve been praised for a good dish, the customary “how did you do it?” clause follows. My reply is always “just the usual procedure” and then makes a graceful exit to avoid further interrogations. I’m not sure of the roots of this attitude, maybe because I want to keep a family culinary heritage like Mama Sita or I want mine to mine alone. But the truth is, I am just shy to reveal my shortcuts. I feel that I am a cheater, I cheat and do a lot of shortcuts in the kitchen that I feel I’ll be judged by the cooking gurus.
But things changed, I realized that it is already acceptable to cook according to your preference and of your patron’s. I don’t like to pretend anymore that I strictly follow what’s in the cooking bible. I’d like to share my simple and realistic recipes to somehow help working mothers like me feed their families in the fastest way possible. Although I am no gourmet expert, I’d like to think my dishes are edible enough to fill anyone’s tummy. And most of all, I’d like to influence the world to cheat in the kitchen. Haha
I’m cooking and I’m sharing how now. Visit my recipe blog ourmealtime.blogspot.com. Please?
