Cooking in the state of “Things Hoped For”

For years I avoided the kitchen and the fun it has to offer because My “expectations” beat down my confidence. I Expected the dishes to always come out like they looked in the pictures or at the hands of my culinary friends! And of course they didn’t. Why?  I was a beginner & you see I set a ridiculous expectations on myself creating undue stress & more messes than good dishes.                       Now, I cook in a state of : Things Hoped for. Hoping that my dishes look even close to those of my friends or the pictures I see on TV and online. In dropping my “expectations” Now I am having FUN in the kitchen and can eat Almost everything I cook with Joy and happy taste buds. So on that note, I share this recipe and Hope it turns out to Be all We Hope it will Be.

One thought on “Cooking in the state of “Things Hoped For”

  1. So true! It’s all about loving the process. Just like life is more than peak experiences, life is all the living you do *between* peak experiences. And by the by, just like photos of models with impossibly awesome hair and sculpted bodies, food photos are seriously doctored and photoshopped. So what you’re seeing in some food photos is more staging than nutrition.
