There came a point in my life when I realized that I wasn't like other people. Maybe it was when one of my friends pointed out that polishing off an entire carton of caramel swirl ice cream in two days wasn't normal. Or when I found myself spending hours reading food blogs. Or perhaps when I started wanting cookbooks more than clothes. That was a big day for me.
Somewhere along the way I realized that I I loved food far more than most. Sometimes I wonder why I couldn't have been passionate about something else—like running for example. People tell me that they love running all the time—what's with that? But I've decided to embrace this love because it brings joy to me as well as to people that I love.
