I even have play lists for cooking... for those of you who follow my training blog, know I also keep play lists for running and cooking playlists are just as fun to make!
One of my favorites is my "Island" mix that is played when we make Tapas, Tacos, fish or anything where I get to use citrus seasoning... Some songs on that one are "Toes" by Zach Brown Band, "Kokomo" by the Beach Boys, and about a dozen Bob Marley songs. When I make salsa, yep, you guessed it, salsa music... Celia Cruz Guatanamera, Salsa Brava, and Carlos Santana "Oye como Va." I have to use my Spanish Language minor or I'll lose it! The girls are not only learning how to slice tomatoes but how to do a perfect open form hammerlock!
Another favorite is my "Hot Damn" mix for when I cook spicy food... it has songs with the word "Fire" or "Hot" in the title. Some examples are "I'm on Fire" by the Boss, "Sex on Fire" by Kings of Leon, "Light my Fire" the Doors, "Sleep Now in the Fire" by Rage Against the Machine, and Hot Tottie by Usher. It always inspires a nice mix of spicy seasonings and I never measure them... it's all on the fly!
