A Peu Pres: About
findingennui asked: Have you made your decision about re-opening that, erg, can of worms(relationship)?
My roommate from university is getting married this weekend. I’m thrilled for her, but also a little bit sad. She and I lived together for our 2nd, 3rd and 4th years together. We had our ups and downs but we were really close because we shared so much of our university experience together. We were always hanging out with the same crowd and we’d always become a “3” with...
Bad ass Mother Trucker
Today I was plated and done an easily 20mis before the next person. The chef tasted and said “Good”, “Good”, “Good”. I could see he was just looking for something to say maybe I didn’t Blanche my zucchini enough? Nope. Did I season everything properly? Yup. Even the meat was perfect. I would like to cheer and throw up my hands and do a little jig when I have a great day in the kitchen. But I...

When I cook something that turns out well
Friend: Do you believe in God?
Me: I believe in something higher than man but not one almighty being. And I will tell you that ever since my father passed away I always pray to him - because him, him I believe in.
50% of me: "I love dresses and flowers and pretty things."

I am done with dating.
While I was in Florence my sister asked me again: “But why are you dating this guy? You see no future with him and I’m constantly seeing you dating for dating sake. Why don’t you just wait until you meet someone you actually want to be with and date them?” Those words repeated over and over again on my last (and ultimate failure of a trip) with the Frenchman. I knew he...
Kitchen Reno black hole
Friend posting on Facebook: Reno Kitchen - what do you want or suggestion to have in a kitchen?!
Me: Oh OH OH - 6 burner Viking stove, 2 ovens, separate freezer (not deep freeze), large/wide freezer, wine cooler fridge, butchers block and kitchen aid.
Friend: Do you just think of awesome kitchen ideas or do you have all this??
Me: I don't go to culinary school for nothing! Oh and fridge drawers and vertical racks for plates etc., and open cupboards for plates and glasses!
Friend: This is awesome!
Top of the Group....
Today I had my chef evaluation - call it our “mid term” grades. I’m the top of our group. That’s 1st in 10. Apparently I’m a very good student and one of the best. The chef had no serious critique other than I can’t get overly confident because then I can ruin my streak. He said that I need to plateau and maintain. He’s seen some slip and...
Cooking is a Marathon...not a race.
My biggest goal in the kitchen is to be efficient with my time. I see people looking at their notes, forgetting to do this or that, and I really never want to be the person where the chef has to say “Putain…come on guys…LISTEN!” (it happens…believe me) I’ve always had this innate ability to problem solve AND see what the next two steps are. This is incredibly helpful not only in life, but...
