Roxette’s “It Must Have Been Love” Rewritten to “It’s Always Been Love”

We danced our sambas in the ballroom
Then it closed, and I was blue.
I’d wake up lonely, anc call your name
All I wanted was more of you

Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away.

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It always been good; our web is well-spun
It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
Since our eyes locked and met, ’til the death of the sun.

I always feel that we’re together
And you’re sheltered in my heart.
I see you daily in every location
Like the paint upon the art.

And it’s a pleasant spring day in the sun’s ray

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It’s more than I wanted; you’ve completed me
It’s always been love and it’s just begun,
It reaches the asteroids, it reaches the galaxy.

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It always been good; our web is well-spun
It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
Since our eyes locked and met, ’til the death of the sun.

It’s always been love, and it’s just begun.
It’s more than I wanted; you’ve completed me
It’s always been love and it’s just begun,
It reaches the asteroids, it reaches the galaxy.

(always been love, and it’s just begun[2x])

Selena’s “I Could Fall in Love” Rewritten

How I lost my heart that night
When we danced and swayed
And my face shines real bright
I’m thrilled that you have always stayed
Now I have taken you in my arms
And never will let you go

I have fallen in love with you
I have fallen in love with you

I often wondered how
Touching you would make me feel
I’m glad we took that chance somehow and
Tomorrow you will want me still
And I can’t keep this to myself
I’ll never let you go

I have fallen in love with you
I have fallen in love with you

And we know it’s all right
And I know we will always do what we should do
And I have fallen in love, fallen in love with you
I have fallen in love with you

And when you kiss me you send such burning embers
that eminate within me.
I hope somehow I give you the same residual love that you give me.

And I can’t keep this to myself
I’ll never let you go

Habanero Jelly with Pomegranate Seeds for People with Anosmia

For all of you readers who do not know what anosmia is,it is the condition of not being able to smell.If one cannot smell, we cannot sense danger that everyone else can, and 95% of taste is gone, as smelling is a valuable facet to tasting. I have more posts to educate those who have anosmia as well as those who know people like us along with help the culinary arts field, as texture is underrated; however for anosmics it is largely the highlight of any dish along with sensations (cool mint, hot salsa…)

Habanero gives heat.
Jelly is sweet with a silky texture.
Pomegranate seeds are sour tasting that are crunchy with juice that gushes from the seeds.

Homemade Tapioca with Pomegranate Seeds for Those with Anosmia

For all of you readers who do not know what anosmia is,it is the condition of not being able to smell.If one cannot smell, we cannot sense danger that everyone else can, and 95% of taste is gone, as smelling is a valuable facet to tasting. I have more posts to educate those who have anosmia as well as those who know people like us along with help the culinary arts field, as texture is underrated; however for anosmics it is largely the highlight of any dish along with sensations (cool mint, hot salsa…)

Wednesday was National Tapioca Day, so I ventured and cooked and chilled my own from an altered recipe along with adding pomegranate seeds to the top of every dish served.

3 cups whole milk (I used almond milk)

1/2 cup quick-cooking tapioca (I used rice flour)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir together the milk, tapioca, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 5 minutes longer.

Whisk 1 cup of the hot milk mixture into the beaten eggs, 2 tablespoons at a time until incorporated. Stir the egg mixture back into the tapioca until well mixed. Bring the pudding to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer until the pudding becomes thick enough to evenly coat the back of a metal spoon.

Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. The pudding may be served hot or poured into serving dishes and refrigerated several hours until cold.

Tastes:
Sweet – Custard
Sour – Pomegranate Seeds

Textures:
Creamy – Custard
Crunchy – Pomegranate Seeds
Gush of Juice – Pomegranate Seeds

Original recipe

…along with the idea of pomegranate seeds.

Eating with No Smell (Anosmia) with Sensations

For those of us who are anosmiacs, we have challenges with consumption of food. As I stated in an earlier post, texture is one facet. The other facet is sensation. I will categorize what I eat and the sensations they offer, for it is one more thing we may have overlooked. However, events and conditions change us.

Acidic:
Tomato sauce, Pineapple, Citric fruits (oranges, lemons, kumquats, tangerines..)

Heat:
Chilies, Ginger, Buffalo Sauce

Cool:
Dairy Products like sour cream and ranch dressing, mint

Burning:
Soda

Warmth:
Cinnamon, caraway
