Oh my, oh my, oh my…. My last post was in July… (I honestly did not mean to make that rhyme but yeah, here we are.) So wow, a lot has happened since that final recipe, which is absolutely delicious by the way and I definitely encourage you to check it out if you want. It’s more of a summertime dish, but it might take you back to those warm, long evenings.
Back to the story, so yeah I graduated in July, and almost immediately started my adult life as a working girl. Seriously, this is such a weird and confusing phase in your life to go through. Am I making the right choices? Am I doing the right thing with my life right now? What do I want?Too much was going on in my mind and my life that I just stopped cooking and creating recipes suddenly. I simply did not have the time, motivation, or inspiration for it. Honestly, this was kind of a scary thing to happen, because if there was one constant factor in my life for the past 6 years, it was me being in the kitchen doing what I love to do most.
But it’s itching again.
I’ve been watching 24Kitchen (which is like the Dutch Food Network) and reading cookbooks everyday to get inspired and to get back at it. With the festive season upon us, it is most definitely time to start baking again! So expect some new recipes and other food-related posts on Basil and Oil soon!! Much love.
