I was going through my photos on my computer, and I found this one:
First of all, what a muffin I was! I mean, really – check me out, working that babuschka scarf. I was fashion-forward even then.
Second of all, for anyone who wonders at the origins of my focus on food, here you have it, caught on camera, at the tender age of 8 years old. The story behind this picture is this: I loved pancakes and bacon for breakfast on Saturdays so much that I took over making them for the whole family. My love of cooking has only spiraled farther out of control since then. Look at me now, I am making vegan chocolate pudding and all kinds of other recipes for chrissakes. And yes, I still love a good stack of pancakes too (although not Hungry Jack).
