Today someone reminded me of the understanding of “perspective” and “point of view,” and somehow it got me thinking about how cooking and baking also have both a perspective and point of view. There is the creator of the food and then the consumer. Before I began experimenting in the kitchen as of late, I never really thought about how the cook or chef or even my mother (who usually cooks for me) felt about the food they brought to the table. My simple mind always just said, “Hey, as long as it’s edible, it’s all good.” Naive? Most definitely. There’s so much more that goes into the dishes that my mouth so greedily devours – the love, passion, joy, effort, energy, time, sweat, and most of all, the concern for the people who will be eating your creations. It’s like the artiste and his masterpiece and the composer and his song. It’s really that incredible. Unfortunately, sometimes “perspective” is overlooked, and their very being that went to the food is forgotten.

and now, MOST IMPORTANTLY

What I have been baking/cooking:

From top to bottom, left to right: Double-layered, honey-cinnamon frosting and hazelnut cinnamon chocolate cake (finished product); Baked cheese, bacon, mushroom, and asparagus dish (before); Baked cheese, bacon, mushroom, and asparagus dish (after); Bacon wrapped asparagus (front); Cheese covered mushrooms (back); Apple pie with weaved cover (finished product); and fruit tart with a simple clear glaze and melt chocolate layer in the middle (finished product)

For recipes – I will be back 🙂

Everything is homemade – crust, frosting, and all, so get excited to be able to do it yourself too! If I can do it, you can too!

Good night lovelies!

Come back for more soon!

XOXO,
Ainsley
