I have a hunch my recent lack of inspiration and/or motivation is coming to and end. As I figured would inevitably happen. But I've been thinking a lot about my last [rambling] post and the ebb and flow of food, cooking, baking and being in the kitchen. I go through phases of having the kitchen be my solace. You just try kneading dough and tell me its not therapeutic. But it's work and requires imagination and creativity. So it becomes a balancing act. And I was thinking about this when I remembered a Nigella Lawson episode where she said something which I just had to leave here:
You need a balance in life between dealing with what's going on inside and not being so absorbed in yourself that it takes over ... And cooking is about balance and harmony.
