Re: how does ADD affect your cooking?

I seek out new flavors, ethnic cuisines and highly rated restaurants (usually through Yelp). It's hard to know where my passion for food ends and my food addiction begins (I have a problem with overeating and I'm overweight)!

Right now, I'm into Puerto Rican cuisine (I'm half Puerto Rican), and I've been sticking with that for a while. I tend to drift from cuisine to cuisine (two weeks Persian, three weeks Italian), but I've been really exploring Puerto Rican food. It's so complex and expansive, it could take me years to get through all of the recipes! I already have my favorites (Arroz con Pollo, Tostones, Pernil, Habichuelas Guisadas, Bistec Encebellao), but there's so much more than just the "popular" foods!

I initially learn off the "official" recipes, but now I'm branching into tweaking them to my individual taste.

I find my ADHD actually helps in the kitchen, as constantly switch my attention between different tasks (having to cook a side dish and main dish at the same time while prepping for time efficiency). But it can also be a detriment when I'm impulsive and fail to pay attention to detail (like putting cumin in a pumpkin pie!!!).
