I like to eat. The cooking part, well that's just a means to an end. Fortunately, I like to eat good food and not the stuff from drive-through windows. The better I become in the kitchen, the more that I realize going out to eat is rarely worth it.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook with a lot of fresh produce and homemade sauces. I try to use as little from a bottle or mix as possible, primarily because I find it fun to make it myself and I like knowing exactly what I'm putting in my food.
My cooking tragedies
While I've never ended up with blue leek soup like Bridget Jones, I can honestly say that leeks and I do not get along in the kitchen.
