I'm trying to teach myself how to cook. It is going pretty slow. I never wanted to learn and just had no desire to cook. Now that I'm a mom I'm trying to cook for my family. Although, I cant just go into a kitchen and throw something together. I need food with a lot of flavor and recipes that don't need to be altered. I have no sense of what would be good with this or that (spices, seasonings, and etc). I have to follow the recipes to the T. If I'm going to take time to cook I want it to be something I will love. To make things hard on me though ( j/k : ) ) my husband is allergic to red meat, he hates cheese, vinegar, to much lemon (which I LOVE) and pretty much any type of condiment except for ketchup and barbeque sauce. He's really picky and trying to find something that inspires me to cook, that he will eat is tough. When we first got married he told me that if I cooked it he would eat it. So I fixed a pasta dish with Italian dressing, he gagged and spit it out! This is what I have to deal with! So, I'm always looking for a good poultry or fish dish! And I’m always looking for good tips and hints to make cooking easier for me.
