Life is an amazing recipe. For every sweet, there is a little salt to enhance the taste and make the experience more pleasurable. For every fallen meringue (can you say humidity?) there is humility and the realization the pie is still darn tasty. For every recipe step there is an alternative. No one can tell us exactly what should go into the mix--it's our right to choose--to experiment--to fail (we still get/have to eat the results) and to try again with different ingredients, different processes, and different timing! I never realized that the kitchen is indeed a microcosm of the universe. I did know that when left untreated, untended, and unused, unwanted things tend to grow! But when combined with love, amazing things can be made. Unfortunately, to quote Auntie Mame, "Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!" Don't be one of those "ps's! Get out there and really cook! And know you are loved!
