The other morning, I made breakfast for my wife and sons. Fried eggs, bacon and toast. As I cooked, it really made me think of how much I love cooking and how much I'd love to pursue it as a hobby. Perhaps even as a paying job, if the right circumstances arise. I told Jennifer (my wife) that the best times I had at college working in food service were when I was cooking or working in the bakery. Preparing food is a blast. Clean-up is not.
At this stage of being a person who loves to cook as a hobby, my favorite things to use for seasoning include Cavender's Greek Seasoning (based in Harrison, Arkansas, where one of my uncles lives), soy sauce, basil, oregano and garlic powder. I hope to expand this list.
