“Now burn the ginger and garlic.” I’m holding a phone in one hand and staring at the skillet in front of me trying to decide if my aunt, who is coaching me through making my very first pot of dal, is worth trusting on this. Burning your food is a sign you’ve gone to far, made a mistake, that you’ve done something wrong. But my Aunt Ginger (true story — her name is Ginger) sensed the hesitation in my silence and implored me to do as she instructed. So up the heat went, and the ginger and garlic were cooked until they were a deep, tawny brown.

I have a pretty fast paced life. I'm fairly successful and travel a lot. Come from a really good family and love to spend the time I have with them and friends.
