Ok, so you never liked onions, but you need them for fl avor. Maybe youre not a big Jesus fan either, but, yeah, youll need Him too. For the record, this book is not at all about Jesus or onions, but it has everything to do with moments in time that inspired me to cook the way I do. I hope you enjoy the real-life true stories accompanied with many of the recipes many friends and family have enjoyed over the years. Personally, I dont know how many times Ive been invited to cook a meal at somebodys house and they didnt have an onion somewhere. If youre not an onion lover, youll need to add this little buddy in the future to your grocery list, I assure you. Nevertheless, fi nd a cozy nook, ladies and gentlemen, and settle down as you read in the pages ahead to the little abstractions that make enjoying food that much better. Then after perusing said obscenities, try a recipe for yourself. The stories behind each motivated me to cook that way and for some reason, it just tastes so good! But this is not the end, my friends and fans. The 1st Book of Stankin is just a chapter with more to follow in my second book complete with more stories and recipes that explore beef, lamb , pork, breakfast, brunch and vegetables! But for now, always think of the aromas and colors of your childhood and there begins the art of cooking with soul and love. See you in Book 2!
