I know, you see the words “the best” and you’re like, “Psh. Yeah, okay.” Well, “the best” is certainly quite a claim to make, one that I don’t take lightly. Declaring something as “the best” is like saying “I love you;” you don’t just go tossing it around. But unfortunately, many people do. That is why we don’t always take such phrases as seriously as we should.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to launch into a lecture. I’m just trying to make clear that I mean business! This is some seriously good stuff, the best I’ve ever had. If you don’t believe me, then try it for yourself. I’m sure, after just one bite, you’ll agree!
This is a really special dish. My mom first made it for me, which makes it all the more near and dear to my heart. I usually like to do the recipe-testing, but it’s nice to have my mother make something special for me once and a while. Even better is when we cook together, as we did tonight. Those are the kinds of memories I’ll carry forever.
But enough about me. I like to spare you little cookies of the personal details in my life (like what I did today and how cute my dog is, etc.), because that’s not what this is about. It’s about the food. I do hope, however, that in sharing my personal attachment to this dish, you will better understand why it’s so sublime.
