You Need Food to Live

And thank God, because it is DELICIOUS.

Share what you're cooking, what you're eating, what you're craving, your favorite recipes, anything about food. Meat-lover? Vegan? Gluten-free? Morally opposed to salad? Raw foodist? Fried foodist? Everybody who loves food is welcome. Heck, you're even welcome if you don't love food.

ETA: Because sometimes we just can't have nice things, let me respectfully request that posters observe the following:
1. It's fine to not like certain foods or cuisines. Please bear in mind, however, that while we all need food to live, for many of us food is a lot more than just necessary fuel. It ties in very closely to memory, family, emotion, heritage, and culture-- which people tend to take pretty seriously. Before you go off on how disgusting X food is and how much it makes you gag or whatever, try to consider the feelings of others for whom that food may hold deep significance.
2. Or, more simply, it's okay to not like things, but don't be a dick about it.
3. Before it comes up, this is not a place to discuss eating disorders. There is a wealth of resources available regarding the serious problem of ED, including on the internet, and it is in your best interest to seek those out before you get into a discussion of it on a cosplay forum.
4. Don't hate. Participate.

To start off, we're expecting a big snowstorm here in NY, so I'm planning on making a big pot of Cuban black bean soup and a pan of apple crisp to get us through the next few cold, snowed-in days.

We are not entitled to our opinions; we are entitled to our informed opinions. Without research, without background, without understanding, itís nothing. Itís just bibble-babble. Itís like a fart in a wind tunnel, folks." --Harlan Ellison
