Hello and welcome to my food blog, Pinch of Patrick. I am ecstatic to be able to share the recipes with you that I have been cooking for a while. My goal is to create delicious and approachable recipes that you will be able to make for your friends and family.
I can't stress this enough - I am NOT a fan of recipes. I find them to be confusing, hard to follow, and an absolute distraction from the essence of cooking. In my opinion, cooking is all about ad libbing. Anytime I am in the kitchen I am constantly taste testing and adding a pinch of this or a dash of that. However, my spontaneity results in periodic inconsistencies and the occasional eye-roll when people ask for my recipes and all I have to offer is a ramble of ingredients and measurements.
Given my cooking style and aversion to recipes you might find it a little odd that you are reading this on a blog featuring them. What I hope to achieve - that's different from other blogs and cookbooks - is to write recipes that are delicious and have comprehensible steps with demonstrations.
So whether you are cooking for one or a family of fourteen, I hope you enjoy all that my blog has to offer. Please feel free to reach out with any comments you may have on my "About Me" page, I'd love to hear from you!
