This year I turned 30. I am embarking on a whole new world, with possibilities I never saw before. A world of creation, with secret potions of precise measurements, tools and timing. Odd ingredients perfumed with fresh flavors each dancing together in just such a way that you melt, just like the butter in your mouth. This blog will explore my exploitive affair with food. I will make a study of known recipes and make notes on what works in my kitchen, and maybe yours too. The half blood princess, as it were. I’ll share recipes, sources, tips, and the tales of my kitchen concoctions.
