About Alla Wilkins

While living in Europe, I made all of my food from scratch and spent much time in my kitchen preparing food. I would dream that I would have food already half prepared and only need to put in the microwave, press a button, and eat a wonderfully prepared meal in a matter of minutes. In March I was boarding a plane to go to this beautiful country. The all you can eat buffets were absolutely bewildering to me, as I could not figure out how an establishment could possibly profit by allowing people to eat until they dropped. I have attempted the experiment myself on multiple occasions, which had immediately resulted in exponential growth of my thighs. The need to buy new clothing was soon looming on the horizon, as I was unable to fit into any of the garments that I had brought with me from home. In order to battle the rapid expansion program that my body had seemed to embark upon all by itself, I had signed up for a gym membership. Alas, my jogging and cycling rituals did not seem to bring about any sort of buttock reduction despite the fact that I started to monitor my portion sizes. Surprised at just that, I began to read the labels on the food with which I had stocked my pantry. Sugar and syrup were the only things that made sense to me – which is when I started to realize what my grandmother meant by saying that cooking is a science. Apparently, the wise men in lab coats have turned the art of transforming nutrients into lard long before they actually reach the stomach. Skillfully greasing the wheels of food processing, they have made food convenient, yet full of additives that void it of nutritional value.That was precisely the reason why I found myself putting on an apron and getting out the spatulas once again. In Europe, most people speak several languages because of so many diversified cultures. As a result, I speak five languages today.

Alla Wilkins purchased this house in 2006
