The view outside your kitchen window is white as snow. You smile to yourself because this is a cook's dream. Your favorite room, your kitchen, has the best view in the house. A view of beauty and wonder, stillness and peace, magic and nostalgia.
You remember the days when you couldn't wait to get out there and roll around in the snow with your friends. But now you are older and you are content to stay inside where you are snug and warm. The snow still calls to you, but the kitchen calls louder.
You start off your adventure with a cup of coffee, or maybe even a hot chocolate. Of course you need that dollop, or two, of freshly whipped white cream.
As you putter about you imagine all the ways you will enjoy your day in the kitchen. The scent of fresh bread baking is the first thing to cross your mind. You can picture yourself slicing into loaf of white bread and slathering it with butter, peanut butter, or jelly.
Later on for dinner you'll enjoy a comforting dish blanketed in a lovely white cream sauce. Or, maybe today is the day for a glorious side of buttery white mashed potatoes? Pizzas and pastas laden with cheese. Or perhaps the stillness of the day challenges you to try that fancy fish recipe. You know the one. The one where the flaky white fish is bathed in a flavorful sauce.
But then your sweet tooth gets the best of you and you realize that you must have dessert. You start daydreaming about vanilla cakes, meringues as fluffy as the clouds, and warm and spicy rice puddings and before you know it your decision is made. Or is it?
