Why Follow My Recipe

I usually don't read Chick Literature- but was handed a book called I loved, I lost, I made Spaghetti by Giulia Melucci. As embarrassing as it sounds I found myself unable to put the book down till I read the faith of Giulia Melucci and her love life. Coming out of a 5 yr long relationship myself and walking around feeling like it was the end of the world, I suddenly felt- O well- stop feeling sorry for yourself and start living. What I did enjoy most in the book were the sprinklings of delicious recipes of Italian food that she made in reference to her friends and lovers.

My sister has always wanted me to write a cook book or at least document the different things I make. I don't follow recipes I adapt, add, garnish, embellish, subtract, innovate, till I make it my own. I always tell her its hard to write this down because it is based on a moments inspiration, or what needs to be used up in the fridge. Nonetheless Guilia Melucci's book inspired me to try. At least log in a few delicious treats.
