You never thought this way?
Do you love cooking? Are you a raw foodie or you find it a delectable experience to cook your food on the stove as well?
I fall into the both experiences. I adore my raw creations, and I love preparing some hot recipes calling for the fire, steam, and splashes of flavor.
The enjoyment comes not only from the food I am preparing. The whole process of food offering is an intricate combination of ingredients, recipes, your personal mood, kitchen utensils and cookware.
Your Ingredients Make It Your Recipe
My passion to cook and prepare meals for my family and friends runs deep in my psyche. I am so enthusiastic about it that my husband tells me that I cannot prepare the same recipe twice
Every time I find a thing or two to fine tune or to change or to subject to an experiment with different ingredient(s) or ways of preparation.
No matter what happens, I prefer organic ingredients to non-organic. I practice steaming versus frying; sauteing versus deep frying!
And raw salads with a myriad of sauces, herbs, and rarely-used ingredients are at the top of my “live-and-love-food” list.
Mood Is Your Best Tactics To Inspire
Or to make somebody sick.
The best tactics to follow is to prepare your food when you feel cheerful, happy, amazed, inspired, in love, reflective… . You got the train of thought.
Feeling negative or even indifferent shall be passed into your food preparation process.
Your recipes, no matter how fancy they are, will be charged with negative energy – matching or even surpassing yours – your were in while preparing the food.
Before you step into your kitchen, please take time to unwind, look inside and reach deep into your soul where peace is your constant companion.
Once you are ready within, go straight to your favorite recipe or meal preparation. The final results will surprise you. Are you ready for it?
Cook With Kitchen Utensils That You Love And Need
It makes it so much easier to create unique recipes with quality cookware and specialty kitchen gadgets.
My kitchen drawers boast of measuring cups and spoons (I love these ones! And I have several sets. Different of course!), corn strippers, herb savor sets, mandoline slicer, can strainer, and so much more!
One of my favorite ways of preparing food is in ceramic cookware. Try it! The flavor of the meals prepared this way shall forever change your relationship with food overall.
Just recently, I got an invitation to test the energy efficient cast aluminum cookware by Fagor. Why is it different than any other cooking set I’ve got in my kitchen?
• Meals cook faster with lest energy usage – Induction Technology allow even and quick heat distribution for your yummy meals inside each pot or pan
• Cleaning is super easy too – No matter how sticky meals are, these wonderful pieces offer quick and easy cleaning. Dish soap and dish rag is enough to bring your aluminum cast back to their initial shiny state.
• Perfect for use on all stovetops: gas, electric, radiant and induction
• Healthy meals due to very little or no oil used when cooking
• All lids are oven-safe and handles are detachable to optimize storage! This is one of my favorite features as well!
I have a quick story to share with you about the Fagor cookware set.
While I was at BlogHer’12 in New York, my husband decided to try his culinary skills to cook for the family.
He was so enthusiastic about it that he decided to use one of the Fagor Cast Aluminum pans for his vegetable dish. That recipe required some layers of different ingredients. The cooking was so smooth and even, and everything was going his way.
At the end, he ended up with the amount of food that could only be consumed by at least ten people (he had only two at that moment to feed). My hubby was so taken away with the ease and no-problem cooking in this pan that he absolutely lost his sense of Amount, just the right amount for the two people in the house!
To me it was funny. But it is so true that cooking in this Fagor cookware is so easy and non-problematic! Keep that in mind when using Fagor pans!
At the end, what really matters is your love for food and your individual preferences for certain recipes. To have a wonderful mood and amazing kitchen gadgets would definitely contribute to your creative side when preparing your yummy recipes for your loved ones.
