Check out my new ingredients, here.
I'm Patty. I'm a sister, a friend, a sig-o, a chemist, a student, a housekeeper, an unofficial baker, and an unofficial cook.
I'm starting this blog for a lot of reasons...I get so frustrated when I buy cookbooks that don't have any pictures in them. For the untrained cooks and bakers, like myself, how are we supposed to know what it's supposed to look like? What is our ultimate goal? With my posts, I'm hoping to be able to help those who have pictureless cookbooks by working my way through pictureless recipes. Of course, each recipe will be up for interpretation, but I will do my best.
Undoubtedly, I will be trying recipes that I find intriguing, but not necessarily from pictureless books. I hope those recipes will peak your interests as well.
The first book that I will attempt to work through is Healthy College Cooking. It is a book that I was recently published in! One of my recipes that I had submitted, which I will post later, was chosen along with other college students' recipes as part of a contest. One of the prizes was a copy of the book. Though it was a very exciting day when the book landed on my doorstep and I am very supportive of its concept, I was mildly disappointed when I flipped through the book and found absolutely no pictures! Hence, the birth of pictureperfectpassionphood! One of my primary goals will be to slowly chug through the book and provide pictures for those recipes, or at least my take of them.
I am also starting this blog to be able to keep in touch with old friends so that if one day I run into an old friend, he/she won't be able to say, "What? You had five kids?" Of course, I am also hoping to make new friends along the way with pictureperfectpassionphood.
Besides recipe posts, I will be sharing some of the exciting and not so exciting events that go on in my sometimes small world.
Please feel free to comment and leave suggestions, as this is the first time I have ever attempted to share a little bit of me.
