Hello blogosphere, nice to meet you. Since I’ve come to the realization that 60% of the photos I take feature a fuzzy four-legged creature and 37.2% involve food of some sort why not just slide the rest of the way down the rabbit hole and write about my obsession with food? (The remaining 2.8% are too blurry to categorize ;))
In the spirit of the title, 激うま gekiuma [gek-ee-oo-mah] means “seriously delicious” and hopefully that doesn’t translate into “seriously unhealthy” or “painfully arduous.” My feeling is that life’s too short and my metabolism’s too slow to eat bad food so why sacrifice taste for health when you can have both? And no, there will not be any exercises in transmogrifying cardboard into cassoulet altho the mad scientist in me is somewhat tempted…. Sadly, I’m too lazy and busy to spend 10 hours creating an ode to the parsnip. My goal is to put delicious, healthy food within reach of lazy epicures everywhere. While I am not a culinary professional nor do I have any formal training, I have picked up a few tricks along the way while keeping hold of my thumbs so hopefully this site will be worth a few chortles and crazy dinners. I hope you enjoy the chronicling of my culinary finds and mishaps as much as I enjoy eating and writing about them. These recipes are actually our dinners so unless it’s a repeat, someone had to have their stomach pumped, or I got a day off from the kitchen I usually post pretty frequently; however, I’ve taken on some interesting writing projects and so will try to post at least once a month. Most of these recipes are my own misguided concoctions and any modified or deified recipes have been credited. And while I am a physician, I’m not your physician so any nutrition or health information here are general guidelines for your average person, not individual X with medical history Y & Z. Please do consult with your physician if you have health or nutritional concerns cuz that’s what we’re there for 🙂 So apologies for all the blurry iPhone pics and thanks for checking in. Hope to see you soon.
While I write this blog to share my love of food and interest in a healthy lifestyle with others, I do ask that you don’t use my pictures, posts, or recipes without crediting my blog https://gekiuma.wordpress.com Thank you. Feel free to leave a comment or email me at gekiuma dot blog @ gmail dot com and I’ll try to answer your questions/entertain you with my collection of knock, knock jokes 😀
