Rubber dub-dub thanks for the grub

I’ve finally decided to follow my heart, as well as my nose and belly, and write about my lifelong passion… FOOD! My passion for food started from the time I could eat solids, and has been nurtured by my family and most of the people who have come into my life. If I haven’t been caught on camera eating, I’m paging through mouth-watering food magazines or talking about my supper. Nothing else exists, food has my attention pretty much every hour of the day. My dream has been to write about food, so here I am taking control and doing just that.
I don’t want to write about just any kind of food I come by; I want to share my love for home-cooking. I have spent many hours in kitchens alongside some of the greatest cooks. I’ve listened to their advice, watched them work over bubbling pots, helped them wash up and have had the privilege of eating their incredible dishes throughout my life. Yes, I’m referring to my mom, dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles, my beloved childhood nanny and even close family friends.
The meals served at home are always lavish; whether on Christmas day, Sunday dinner or midweek meals. Everyone has a special ‘family favorite’ dish they bring to the table. I don’t know if it is because of the love and patience put into their flavorful meals, but when I attempt them, I know they won’t taste quite like the originals; even if I get it close. Somehow I know, I’m not the only one in the world that has these opinions about the home-cooking I’ve been brought up on – nothing quite beats the original.      
‘Stuffed!’ is always how I feel after every meal at home, or in the homes I’ve eaten at. Anticipation grows inside of me as the flavors in the kitchen develop and waft through the house. I can’t help but dish up a little bit of everything until my plate resembles a mountain I have to conquer. Never disappointed with what I eat, home-cooking leaves me full, satisfied and happy with life.
I am not a professional chef by any means; I know I still have a lot to learn and many more ‘family secret’ recipes to try out. I just want to dedicate this space to home-cooking. I believe this is why my passion for food has never faded away. The unique cooks in my life have served me some of the most memorable dishes. No matter where I go in the world and how many restaurants I eat at, nothing will hit the spot, pull my heart strings and satisfy my soul quite like humble home-cooking does. So let’s get in the kitchen and rustle those pots and pans!

  3. Hi Megan,
    Great blog and a successful meal on paper. Well, it is always a success when I salivate, something my neighbours have consistently managed to do to me for the last fourteen years. As a matter of fact, I have a “salivation spot” near the kitchen window where I get to wallow in the aroma of their cooking. I am even allowed to growl if anyone approaches my spot.
    Dare I say that you remind me of my neighbours’ daughter, all these years and all we ever get is the aroma that emits from their house. It is not that they haven’t tried to invite us over, but the daughter eats everything in sight and hence visitors only get to watch the neighbour’s daughter eat.
    How she managed after consuming all this food to still resemble a girl more than a “blob” remains an unanswered question?
    The daughter loves food about as much as you do, even our puppies have given up trying to get a bone from her, as the bones she leaves resembles ivory it is so cleanly dissected.
    As a matter of fact, I am convinced that my son, 23 years old, has still not left home and he comes on coming back home for the smell of our neighbour’s cooking.
    Well I hope you continue to enjoy your cooking as much as I enjoyed reading about it.
    For now I will remain an anonymous aroma stalker, hope to see yet another blog from you soon.

  4. Hello,

    Thank you all for your support. Jess I have posted up the long awaited Greek roast lamb that you and I had the joy in eating on Mother’s day. For the Aroma Stalker, I think if you try the Greek roast lamb your neighbour’s daughter will be standing outside your kitchen window, stalking the Aromas of this dish. She sounds just like me; I can’t bring myself to sharing a plate of food with anyone but luckily I am more than willing to share some great recipes. I hope you enjoy the next post!
