I love the entire process of creating a great meal: 1) watching The Food Network or PBS for inspiration (favorite chefs: Rick Bayless, Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Ina Garten, Mario Batali, Ellie Krieger, Paula Dean, Michael Chiarello, Tyler Florence); or 2) searching through cookbooks (favorite authors: Cheryl and Bill Jamison, Diana Kennedy, Patricia Quintana), the internet, or my collection of recipe clippings; 3) grocery shopping; 4) washing, chopping, assembling, etc. And finally--YUM--sharing the meal with loved ones! Most recent meals cooked: tamales, posole, tres leches cake, apple cake.
