Welcome to my kitchen!

In the beginning, was the food.  And it was good!

That’s really where this all starts.  The food.  I love food.  It’s pretty obvious to anyone who knows me.  I have many interests in this life, along with a very small handful of obsessions.  Food is at the top of that list.

I’m not a gourmet.  I’m not big on super-exotic ingredients from three different continents combined in innovative ways.  I’ve nothing against that type of cuisine, but the meals I keep coming back to – the meals I crave – don’t fall into that category.  I’m more of a steak and potatoes guy.  Just make sure the steak is perfectly cooked and seasoned.  Better yet, I’ll cook.

In other words, I’m after simple food, done well.  I want the bowl of chicken soup that’s so good it makes you dream about the soup you wish your mother could have given you when you were sick.  I want the steak that you eat half of before you realize you’ve been cutting it with the back of your knife.  I want recipes that fit on a 3X5 card without having to write small.  Nothing too complicated, just good.  I want real food.

And that’s where this is really going.  I’ve decided that I’m going to be spending more time cooking this year.  I want to raise my game.  I want to hone the technique I already have and expand it with new tricks.  I’m not planning to open a restaurant, host huge dinner parties on a regular basis or  launch my own cooking show.  I just want to cook.
