I REALLY HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE DESCRIBE FOOD AS SUCCULENT. I THINK THAT REALLY MEANS YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

I could live off of toasted cheese bagels with cream cheese, tomato slices (salted), a soda, and afterwards sliced peaches with cottage cheese.

Shhhhhhh! It's my dirty little eating secret...

it's the engineer in me! i'm soo facinated by the idea of measuring out exact amounts of things and mix it all together in a certain way, and it makes something amazing. and if you change the amounts or you change the method, it won't work!

true, but even so if you put too much of a spice or something in other cooking it'll taste weird. or if you're making a sauce and add to much or too little of something the consistency will be bad.

i'm kind of a freak about the texture of my food.

my mom and my sister are freaks about that too and it's actually so much less precise then you'd think. if you've cooked a lot you can make things like that by feel and smell and taste and intuition and never need recipes. you just adjust whatever you need to fit your standards.

Lily don't hate me! I'm such a huge Italian food fan! I've never really had much French food but it can't compare to Italian!

Of course that's because I'm Italian.

i make basil desserts all the time. that's not really a confession because people know when they eat them but people who don't eat them think it's weird.

I eat an awful lot of rice and rice-based foods. Sticky rice cake, sesame balls, mochi, eight treasure rice...

I eat pasta to a sickening extent
I love baking but I usually get too lazy to do it
THere was a point in time I actually thought I wanted to be a chef and then realized I didn't
I have recipes and when I want to cook I make it a point to get a recipe, but I usually don't follow it. Who needs a measuring cup?
I make sandwiches with mayo, fake meat (usually fake turkey), shredded cheese, and cereal. Yes, cereal.
There is a sundae I make that I named The Sundae of Death. It includes ice cream of your choice, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, sprinkels, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, whipped cream and 3 cherries...2 green and one red right in the middle.
I like ranch dressing A LOT
I don't eat sushi but I make it a point to go to a sushi restaurant.
I don't drink milk but I eat ice cream.
I drank tea (any kind) so much that eventually my stomach gave up on it and now I can't drink it anymore. Sad
Speaking of tea, I think Earl Grey smells like Fruit Loops.
No matter what time of day I wake up I have to eat breakfast foods before I can eat anything else.

But I love breakfast foods so much! I have to wait until at least 11 to have anything, or it'll play havoc with my insides and make me want to throw up.

Dear Lily,

Okay, so when you turn on the stove, if there's no flame, is it really letting gas into the air? Because apparently I nearly killed my family today. Or whatever. But really, how do real people make rice? (And is water boiling with little bubbles or big bubbles?)

kthanks. Maggie

OH NO!! Did you just leave it on/never turn it back to off? That is terribly scary. That's why my stove scared me for the first 4-5 years. Ugh.

oh yes, that is absolutely just letting gas into the air. if the pilot light is out and it doesn't immediately catch you really just need to light it or turn it off! but i'm sure you've learned that now!

and as for cooking rice you can do it a number of ways! i combine about two cups of water for every cup of rice in a pot with a nicely tight lid and let it simmer and absorb. simmering is little bubbles but the water soaks in pretty quickly. does that answer your question well enough?

When I make cookie dough, it's usually just to eat the dough instead of making cookies.

90% of the time I prefer the taste of boxed yellow cake mix batter to my home made yellow cake batter. I think I add too much flour or something.

I think those might be my only two confessions.
