It's no secret (I've never been good at keeping my own anyway). Cooking is not my forte. Or rather, I never let it be. You see, we're all born with inherent gifts, but many of the things we become great at are because we take interest in them. I've never taken much of an interest in cooking, and unfortunately I let that become a part of me. Just a few days ago that fact started to bother me. I pride myself on finding something interesting in most any facet and chore of life. Cooking should be no different. Especially when I look at it for what it is. That being the preparation of food. Its a process-something that goes through steps to then become something else. In other words, you have the ability to control what it looks like (er, well, for the most part), how it tastes, and how it makes you feel. Meals and eating are a critical part of your day. They fuel you and contribute to your health. You should find what you're eating appetizing and attractive. More importantly you should make a personal contribution of your effort to it. It all gives you more flavor.
