Fat DOES taste good

It's that little nagging whisper living in the back of your brain, it's the little twinge you feel each time you open the fridge in an attempt to quell your hunger...and it's the truth.

Fat DOES taste good. It makes blah food good and good food fantastic. Add butter to your pasta sauce - gourmet! Top that broccoli with some cheese - magnificent! Eat Ben and Jerry's rather than frozen yogurt - heavenly!

Fat DOES taste good - and once my husband and I realized this in a more than butter-tastes-better-than-I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Butter sort of way, the world of food became a much more interesting place to us. To put it short, we are probably food snobs. I care where my food comes from, how it is prepared and how it tastes when it gets to me. No matter if I buy it at a grocery store chain, a local farmers market or order it at a restaurant, food production is very serious business to me.

To all things food.
