Ahh, what can I say? Cooking is one of my passions, one of the things I do to take a break, wind down, de-stress, or have fun. My husband tells me that I get into such a focused mode when cooking that he could do just about anything and I wouldn't even pay attention, I am so focused upon what I am creating. And that is really what cooking is for me: creation. Creating something new, something beautiful, something tasty, and then being able to enjoy it so fully, so immediately! When I am not in the kitchen to take a break or have fun, I could be cycling, hiking, snowshoeing, reading, dancing, making/listening to music, or planning a themed party. All of this preferably with my best friend, my husband.
