Now that I'm older and just cooking for two I have plenty of time to experiment and try recipes I've saved for years.
We're becoming more health conscience so produce is becoming more prominent and meat is becoming an ingredient instead of a main event. Now fish and shrimp...they are always main events served with wonderful salads and baked garlic parm cheese bread.
My favorite things to cook
Stir fries, fried rice, dumplings, pasta, seafood, dinner salads, breakfasts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Now it's making interesting snacky dinners for my husband and I. We love throwing things together from this and that in the frig. We plan a few meals like baked pork loin with balsamic vinegar sauce and chicken breasts marinated in garlic dressing. Each makes a meal and leaves leftovers to create delicious snack trays combined with an assortment of cheeses, condiments, various breads, veggies and sprouts we always have in the frig. Add a glass of wine and you've got a nice relaxing meal. Or....if you can't decide what to do with it all just throw it all together in a salad. You'd be surprised (-;
