Cooking *is* Alchemy

If you had told me two years ago that people, many of whom  I have never met, would consider me a foodie, a chef, and beg me to write a cookbook, I would have laughed until I cried.  In all honesty (no hyperbole here), I could not make macaroni and cheese from a box.  You wouldn't think directions meant for an elementary-aged child could go quite as wrong as I managed...  However, in the last two years, I accidentally discovered that I am, in fact, really damn good at this.  I love cooking.  I love thinking about cooking, I love reading about cooking, and I'm sure I will love writing about cooking.  I must say that this new hobby has improved my life approximately a gzillion percent.

I'm going to use this space to share photos, recipes, inspirations, and maybe a touch of randomness. The title reflects my belief that while there is certainly a science to creating food (it is theoretically possible to follow precise measurements and come to a certain result), there is also something larger within it.  Food is powerful stuff.  Food sustains our physicality.  Food brings people together.  Food feeds, quite literally, our souls.
