2011 Epiphanies - day 2 (the "recipe whisperer" is in)

Choucroute garni

This photo has nothing whatsoever to do with today's post. I just happen to like looking at it.
I have said over and over that I do not expect my readers to slavishly follow my recipes. I have even stopped giving very specific recipes. I want us all to be inspired by each other, to both, beg, and steal ideas and make them our own. One source of incomparable inspiration is Mary of One Perfect Bite. She tells great stories in impeccable English and pulls no punches about what a given recipe may or may not bring to the greater cosmos. Here's to you Mary, and may your considerable number of followers continue to take comfort and direction from your excellent guidance.
Do recall that the "recipe whisperer" is available for your culinary dilemmas. Tell me what you don't like and why. By the weekend I will conjure up a solution or two for you. I'm still looking for help for myself with red cabbage (I've had one promising proposal), or something to make whole wheat pasta palatable.

I think that is a great little acknowledgement to Mary. She does have an amazing blog and an amazing following :)

I just found you through Jenn. I'm a fan of her and now, yours...

Hmmm, whole wheat pasta is hard to love. I'm getting there slowly through baby steps, working my way there with whole grain pasta. Usually I just drown it in turkey sausage and vodka sauce, that seems to do the trick.

I adore Mary as well. And recipe whispering is a great name! I think that is how I've always cooked. I call it recipe OCD and I've got a bad case of it!

Nice to meet you and I can't wait to come back here and have some fun with ya.

I've got a quandry for you...I don't like okra or ricotta...what ya got for me?

Lots of yummy love,
Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

How about zucchini flowers? Whenever I try to cook them they are a soggy mess.

Mary is incredible. She's the best.
What about braised red cabbage with apple, pancetta and balsamic vinegar. How does that sound? I have the recipe if you're interested. It's actually Jamie Oliver's.

This series makes me wonder if a person's "dislike" for a food sometimes has more to do with social/psychological/personal reasons than an objection to the taste/texture of a given food.

Then again, with brussels sprouts, it's not me, it's them :)

So, I do not really suppose this is likely to work.
