Wow, it seems like forever since I had the pleasure of participating in Monday Listicles with Stasha over at The Good Life  (www.Northwestmommy.com ).  I am excited about this weeks list, it’s about our favorite quotes and was chosen by www.bitsofbee.blogspot.com, I just recently followed her through Monday Listicles and she is a very interesting read, you should hop over from here and check out this two great blogs as well as the all the others participating in Monday Listicles!

Now, on to my list….there are a lot of great foodie quotes out there so it was tough to choose 10 but here they are in no particular order:

1. We may live without poetry music and art.  We may live without conscience and live without heart.  We may live without friends, we may live without book but civilized man cannot live without cooks.  Owen Meredith

2. No matter where I take my guests  ,It seems they like my kitchen best. (Unknown)

3.  “One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must
regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”

4.   Food is our common ground, a universal experience.        James Beard

5.   “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has  not dined well.”

6.  “Cooking is like love, it should be entered into with
abandon or not at all.”     – Harriet Van Horne, Vogue 10/1956

7.  “When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,’ said Piglet at
last, ‘what’s the first thing you say to yourself?’ ‘What’s for breakfast?’
said Pooh. ‘What do you say, Piglet?’ ‘I say, I wonder what’s going to happen
exciting today?’ said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. ‘It’s the same thing,’
he said.”   – A. A. Milne, ‘The House at Pooh Corner’

8.  To be tempted and indulged by the city’s most brilliant
chefs. It’s the dream of every one of us in love with food.”- Gael Greene

9.  “To eat is a necessity, to eat intelligently is an art.” La  Rochefoucauld

10. “You have to eat to cook. You can’t be a good cook and be a
non eater. I think eating is the secret to good cooking.”  Julia Child

  1. How interesting and enjoyable your quotes are. I love that they’re all related to food and eating!

    • So nice of you to stop by, thanks! I do love food and all things related and I also love quotes so it was very fun for me!

  2. I really enjoyed these quotes. And after reading them…I can tell I’d really enjoy being invited to your house for dinner! 😉

    • Would love for you to visit my kitchen – I promise I would try to feed you well….. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. These are all great! As an avid taster, I especially appreciate Julia Child’s 🙂

    • So nice to meet you…thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment…isn’t tasting fun! I can almost eat a full meal just tasting as I cook lol….

  4. Love to hear people talk about food, so thanks for these! I’m amazed by the Virginia Woolf quote – I never think about her actually EATING anything, just wafting around being brilliant and a little crazy. Thanks!

  5. I love your Pooh quote!! I love your blog too:) I’m always on the lookout for new recipes and that broccoli & applesauce (did I read that right??) casserole has me intrigued already!

    • Lol, you almost read it right. The applesauce is in the BBQ chicken, my recipe program won’t let me put two recipes in a blog post (it’s probably the user not the program lol) so I have them combined but seperated by headings in the post…in the recipe section they are divided like any normal person would do lol…Thanks for stopping by and for the compliment on the blog, it is still a work in progress any suggestions are welcomed!

  6. Great spin on this listicle! I especially love the Virginia Woolf quote (partly because I especially love Virginia Woolf).

  7. Love all of these, but #5 is so true in my world. I just love quotes!

    • I get a bit cranky and just feel bad when I am hungry…my daughter gets down right grumpy lol…when we see, hear, or observe her getting “to that point” someone always says “she needs to eat” lol……thanks for stopping by!

  8. They’re all so true! Julia Child’s is my favourite, though – it makes me feel good about being a big eater. 🙂

    • Lol, I love to eat, it’s a guilty pleasure but hey we all have to eat right so I say go for it and enjoy it! I loved the movie Julia & Julie although they didn’t portray Julia very nice over the blog : (

  9. The Pooh one is my favorite 🙂 But all of these are great! And the one about the kitchen being the best-so true!!

  10. Love them all, but 2and 10 I will remember to quote in the future myself! Wonderful list my friend, so good to have you back xo
