Creativity in the Kitchen

Creativity in the kitchen is the one thing that keeps me going. Because what fun would it be if there were no obstacles?! If you hand me a recipe, I will have no desire to create it. But if you simply ask "Kaley, would you make us some pie" then that opens a whole new bubble of creativity! How should I make the crust? What type of filling can I do? Shall I make a jam or a smooth creamy filling? Bonus points if it not only has to be paleo, but AIP and starch free as well!

Basically, cooking and baking is just being extremely creative...and then being able to gobble up what you have created! Which is great, because then instead of a bunch of random things taking up space on your walls and shelves, you just have happy bellies and content taste-buds 😆

And, of course there is a learning curve to it as well! You have to figure out what ingredients work well together, as well as how different things work! Different dietary needs add fun hurdles, that make you think extra hard! But it isn't always easy, and not everything will turn out! Sometimes what you make is just absolutely repulsing, and you just have to either try again, or decide it was an awful idea and move on! I shall refrain from telling you about the batch of beet fudge I made 😜

I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and try creating something in your kitchen! So crack open you measuring cups, and go for it!
