Cooking with Laughs: Quotes About Cooking

I used to cook. Years ago. Once I was grilling sausage and wandered away for I don’t know happy cookwhat. Soon the smoke detectors went off. I naturally assumed one of the kids had been playing with matches.  Charging heroically upstairs while shouting for calm, I dragged the kids out of the house. I even saved the dog! The fire department came, closed off the street, went in the house……ooops! Forgot about the sausage. It was still on the grill, smoking & burnt to a crisp! The house was fine but smoky. I hung up my apron. Some of my favorite quotes about cooking:

      • My mother was a good recreational cook, but what she basically believed about cooking was that if you worked hard and prospered, someone else would do it for you. Nora Ephron
      • I will never understand why they cook on TV. I can’t smell it. Can’t eat it. Can’t taste it. The end of the show they hold it up to the camera, ‘Well, here it is. You can’t have any. Thanks for watching. Goodbye.’ Jerry Seinfeld
      • In France, cooking is a serious art form and a national sport. Julia Child
      • Hello! Welcome to “Cooking That Has Nothing To Do With Anyone’s Actual Life.” Today we’re making a very complicated recipe, using ingredients you don’t have, utensils you’ve never heard of, in a kitchen bigger than your whole bloody house!’ Richard Jeni
      • Taste my tuna casserole — tell me if I put in too much hot fudge. Woody Allen
      • My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor. Phyllis Diller
