I didn’t always like mushrooms, you know. Or tomatoes, brussel sprouts, and pork chops, lol When I was a child, I thought mushrooms tasted “dirty” and I picked them out of everything. Now? It’s that gritty, garden-esque taste that I crave. That earthiness that gives dishes spunk, you know? I eventually overcame my hatred of pork and brussel sprouts, but tomatoes and I are a bit rocky.. I love them cooked, but I’m not a fan of ’em raw at all!

I’ve come a long way from my picky tastes as a child. It’s why I’m always encouraging that my kids try anything and everything we prepare – you never know when your preferences change. That moment when a certain ingredient or something just clicks, and suddenly tastes delicious to you. Besides, I want them to be able to take on the world, and to do that, it’s about being daring. Taking those chances. Mind of matter, you know?
