Thanks, I try. I believe that food should always look and sound just as good as it tastes :)

Wow, it's beautiful. Though I'm having a hard time imagining what it would taste like. I really love the sprouts coming out of the top. Must be nice to have TWO great skills :) (I can do photos, to some extent, but though I love to eat, I really hate to cook. I find it extremely stressful and just *no fun*.)

Aww thanks!

It tasted kind of like a caprese salad without the balsamic vinegar. Weird, but delicious, and it got me the grade which is what counts in the end :)

I used to find cooking stressful too, until I learned how to make bread. Nothing quite like taking out your anger on a giant piece of dough to make you relax =P

I already make bread, though (made my first all-by-hand, totally unassisted loaf) when I was 14 or 15. I make pastry, too. (I actually don't mind making pastry...but I hate rolling it out and I'm not interested in making a filling so it doesn't do me a lot of good, heh.)

Food just isn't something I enjoy spending time on. I wish it was otherwise because it's easiest to eat really healthily if you like to cook, but no matter how many times I try, or what new things I try, cooking is never anything better to me than an unpleasant chore. It ight be genetic. (My mother hates cooking, too, more than scrubbing a toilet...we both always say we'd rather clean the bathroom than make lasagna.)

It's unfortunate. Food preparation of all varieties is the one chore I wish I enjoyed most. I just...don't. Can't. I keep trying but...I think it's that I never feel there is any reward from it. I get no satisfaction out of it even when I make something tasty that everyone likes. I just feel tired. LOL.

btw...I still think it's both hilarious and sad(on my part) that it took me THIS LONG to figure out that you are a culinary student hahahaha

now that I look back, it makes SO MUCH MORE SENSE
