About Divorce Hungry

The hardest thing I have found about learning to cook is not knowing what ingredients are, how to use them, and where to find them in the store. You won’t have that problem here.

The term “Divorce Hungry” came about because I have to eat every two or three hours, and if I don’t eat that often I get so hungry that I will say or do anything for food. I probably wouldn’t eat a person on your average day of hunger, but divorce isn’t out of the question.

This blog is my collection of recipes I have either created or doodled with someone else’s recipe to make it my own. If it’s someone else’s, I’ll tell you where I got it.

As of December 2010, Michael Pollan’s book In Defense of Food has been a huge inspiration in my cooking and the way I eat. If you  haven’t read it, it’s the only book I would recommend you buy immediately because it will change the way you think about food.

Here is a synopsis of the book’s contents which I have taken from Michael Pollan’s website:

Food. There’s plenty of it around, and we all love to eat it. So why should anyone need to defend it?

Because most of what we’re consuming today is not food, and how we’re consuming it — in the car, in front of the TV, and increasingly alone — is not really eating. Instead of food, we’re consuming “edible foodlike substances” — no longer the products of nature but of food science. Many of them come packaged with health claims that should be our first clue they are anything but healthy. In the so-called Western diet, food has been replaced by nutrients, and common sense by confusion. The result is what Michael Pollan calls the American paradox: The more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we seem to become.

Please buy me a camera.

I want nice pictures on my blog. Until Santa brings me a camera, try not to judge my sub-par photography.

I’m not sure how to cite the partial fork picture on my site header. I couldn’t find out who took it, but you can find it here.
