The following is an excerpt taken from my recent turn as guest food blogger for A Ruby Reduction, published 18 May 2012.
It’s funny how our taste preferences have a tendency to change or evolve with age. If I were to sit down little nine year old Jamie and ask him to name his three favourite vegetables, I can almost guarantee the list would not include broccoli, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts.

My mother must be so proud.
(Wait a minute. If I could travel back in time and meet the me from 1987, am I really going to waste that ability by asking him what his favourite vegetables are? Of course, not. I’m slapping a copy of Gray’s Sports Alamanac in his hand and telling him to
not put some money on the Cubbies).
