Falling in love with Food...


Okay, maybe I am slightly overreacting a bit. 
What can I say? I am a tiny bit sad... someone said something to me on the last few days that really pissed me off. 
Remember I was taking cooking lessons? Well, I still am. But I don't know, somehow cooking during my lessons I don't feel all that excited than when I cook at home. 
I narrowed it down to the fact that my instructors don't really give me much to be excited about... nothing I do is completely right, there is always something wrong. ALWAYS. And okay fine. I am not a chef, and I am not so completely arrogant to believe that everything I cook is ultra delicious and perfect. 
BUT I would appreciate a pat on the back every now and again. 
And a little bit of excitement from their part as well. They seem bored... somehow... 
I know that the last two posts have been of dishes I have styled while at school. And in both of them I have said that normally I am not proud of most things I made expect for these small exceptions.
And maybe I am wrong, maybe the reason I don't feel proud of most that I do there is because, well, one I don't get a good old pat on the back and two there aren't things I am excited to cook. 
Normally, I see a recipe fall in love with it and try it out. 
In my lessons we get a recipe assigned and then we do it.

Well anyhow, I made this two on Easter and it helped me realized this.
Help me see, that, I shouldn't fall out of love with food. I should work on my relationship with food. Just as if it was a regular relationship and I want to make it work. 

So here is my first dish I made.  
My very own Fish Tacos with a mango cucumber salsa. 

A Salmon en croute 

Both really really good and terribly simple to make.
