I am not a patient cook so if it takes all day or has a long prep time I ill usually skip it. I love flavor and think that spices can add a lot with little calories. I started using allrecipes.com to find a new way to cook pork chops since my mom always cooked them in cream sauce and I never liked that. Since them I just type in the main dish I have and see what comes up. My boyfriend is a big fan of my cooking now and looks forward to me trying out new dishes.
My favorite things to cook
I have recently gotten hooked on different salads, but I like to try anything new and healthy. I also modify almost every recipe since I never seemto have the correct ingridients on hand. Usually turns out well though.
My cooking triumphs
I modified a stuffed pork chop recipe and made then with granny smith apples, turkey bacon and gargonzola cheese. They turn out amazing and with any extra stuffing I use it as a salad topping the next day for lunch.
My cooking tragedies
So far I have been able to save just about everything I try.
