Where do my our ideas come from? Often, I do not know. Cooking for me, and for many, is a spiritual, intuitive process. These ideas come to me at night, in the morning, when I pray. They just come to me. Now this recipe is not to complicated or earth shattering. The important point here is that all of us can find our joy. I find mine through my cooking. The ideas just flow to me all the time. I think that is truly what being connected to a higher power is. It is getting your physical self out of the way and letting the information/energy flow. Now this is only a Sun-dried tomato dip. But the concept applies regardless of the depth or complexity of the recipe.
