In case some of you have been wondering why I have been slacking off, there are two reasons: a nasty migraine that just doesn’t seem to go away. And the second reason is not as tasteless. I have rediscovered the joys of cooking, and have been experimenting, just to get the mind off the head-crunching pain.
Call this mid-life gourmand fantasy, and the results have been as mixed as the New York Yankees’ season thus far. Those who have tasted my cooking, believe that I should leave the complex cooking alone for like – the rest of my life – and try something simpler.
Perhaps that is why the RSS alert from AT&T (formerly known as Cingular) announcing that they will soon offer quick recipes from celebrity chef, Rachael Ray, got me pretty excited. (She is like Martha, except cuter and with more sensible cooking tips for people with limited cooking skills.)
I enjoyed her cooking show when I actually had a TV. Rachael Ray Recipes on the Run is a new wireless application that allows subscribers to download recipes directly to their mobile phones and costs $2.99 a month.
Limelife, a start-up based here in San Francisco Bay Area, built this application, which has some rather interesting features, including the ability to store the favorite recipe. In my case, it is going to be recipes that came out edible. And I will keep you posted more on how the cooking goes.
PS: Hope you all indulge me on this slight digression from subjects that might be more meaningful to you all.
