“We eat to live, not live to eat!” said my venerable father, Vuong Phan, to his 5 yr old son while the boy was stuffing his face until his belly hurts later that evening. I’ve never quite agreed with his philosophy since I live to eat!! Nearly all of my friends know how much I love food; from the most simple to the ultra complex, I love how food combines the senses of smell, touch, taste, sight, and sometimes hearing. I also love cooking food as much as I love eating it, often times more; it is really satisfying to me when I see that the final product ends up looking and tasting really good.
This is the end product of a work of love. Here I will post my triumphs and failures to recipes that I have cooked during the week. The recipes that I post will be from cookbooks and cooking magazines that are currently on my bookshelf, in order to keep them from gathering dust I will have to use them! Hopefully I will remember to comment on them, and if I didn’t change the recipe before I post it, I will note any changes at the end.
