Since I’m from New Orleans I grew up with flavor and lots of it. I have a hard time “not” adding lots of seasonings to a dish. If it’s in the house, I’ll throw it in. My feeling is “what can it hurt”. I have an equally hard time following recipes without adding my own twist or extra ingredients. ..but ha…isn’t that half the fun!
I’ve always loved to cook and after raising 4 daughters on a budget and a husband who naturally loves good tasting foods the hobby of cooking came in handy. When you can’t afford to go out to eat but want the good tasting dishes, learning to cook is the ideal way to accomplish it. Besides who doesn’t love to get compliments on their cooking and after all these years having to come up with something new, learning and finding new dishes is such a treat and a way to break up the boredom and hearing those horrible words “same old thing” .
My favorite things to cook
That’s hard to say but I think dishes with sauces, soups, pasta to stuffed chicken or meats and seafood dishes. There’s always the casseroles because of the easy one dish, to great sandwiches and breakfast dishes. In other words, there isn’t much I don’t like or will be willing to try and cook.
