CALL for ENTRIES: The Art of Food
My food obsession strikes me as, well, obsessive sometimes. I cannot explain it really. As a kid raised by a single father, dinner was our time to hang out. Once I was old enough to cook (age eight), food became my familial contribution. As a teenager, food was comfort. And as a fully-grown adult, food is often my adventure amongst the many jobs that limit my time: executive, blogger, artist, musician, and last-but-not-least, mother. It is a passion, an entertaining and delicious escape as well as a quest for health. My desire to have you all enter and represent with this next Call has obvious motivation. Make me proud…
