Now, not everybody considers cooking fun; but I was one of those little girls who likely has some sort of radiation residual from staring directly into the bulb of working Easy Bake Oven. I've been obsessed with food my whole life, really; though I hardly consider myself a culinary snob. One thing I do look down upon is lack of flavor. What is the point of putting something in your mouth, and calories in your body, of it's not going to bring you some sort of temporary enjoyment? Yes, yes, nutrients and energy, blah, blah- All valid points, but even those types of foods should be rich in flavor!
So, if you're still reading this post, then I've done you a great disservice- you really need to get on over to the Mrs. Dashionista app now and check out all the great low sodium, high flavor, recipes their fans have submitted. Perhaps scroll through them a little bit and give someone a deserving boost with an honest vote, okay? Voting will run July 7th, through 13th, 2014, and one vote, per IP may be registered per day. Drooling may occur during recipe browsing, Mrs.Dash and subsidiaries are not responsible for damaged electronics.
What Daughter Says: Times may be changing but this girl still dreams of recipe greatness.
