I cook because I have to eat. Yeah, I would prefer it if restaurants with real chefs provide delicious gourmet for me, but I ran out of money a long time ago. I now cook for myself in order to pay the mortgage and the credit card debt. Luckily, I have since found that I LOVE to cook. I'm a terrible cook, granted, but I have fun with it. I still prefer to only cook once a week and freeze meals for the rest of the week, but this system works for me.
My favorite things to cook
pasta, traditional vietnamese meals, lasagne, turkey burgers, lots of greens...yummy yummy
My cooking triumphs
I made split pea soup and it was GOOD!
My cooking tragedies
I burnt the lasagne :(
