Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!


Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.

I would like to thank kanzensakura for awarding me the “Best Moment Award”! I hope everyone visits her blog for wonderful recipes, poetry, and devotionals. One of the things I love about blogging is “meeting” so many bloggers from around the world. I love reading about the dishes that I never heard of before and ingredients such as purple carrots and vanilla sugar. I have been inspired to try new ingredients and spices which led me to Indian dishes and adding more heat through Thai cooking.

As a Software Testing Manager my days are filled with production deadlines that must be met. My days are regimented in the respect that deadlines must be met but there is a level of creativity to determine the best way to meet those deadlines. And sometimes you only have a few hours to move the code to production! Cooking and testing have a lot in common as you start with a “recipe” and as you work with the ingredients you learn more about them. That leads you to modify recipes and create new ones. As testers we start out with a set of testing ideas that evolve as we learn more about the product under test.

Through my blog I hope to continue sharing with my friends around the world, my love of cooking, testing, and living a healthy lifestyle. Currently I am sharing with everyone my progress in Wegmans Eat Well Live Well Challenge. Today ends my second week and I think my numbers will be slightly better than week 1! I will continue my pancake series by testing out different recipes with interesting ingredients. As the weather becomes nicer I will be sharing our outdoor adventures of disc golf, biking, hiking, and other fun outings.

I enjoy so many blogs for different reasons. Here are a few that I enjoy for their wonderful photos! They are not in any particular order.

Vittle Monster A foodie who shares some wonderful food pictures! Her blog makes me hungry.

  2. Congratulations on receiving Best Movement Award! I love your testing series; I think that requires quite a bit of patience to do (of which I am trying to work on πŸ™‚ ).

    1. Bernice says:

      Thank you! Ironically I do not have a lot of patience! But testing is about providing information on what you witness through testing. It is investigating a problem and putting together a puzzle. I love creating testing strategies and figuring out the best way to approach a problem. πŸ™‚
