I have always loved to cook, but I never thought about getting my recipes “down on paper” until recently. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be. I never realized just how much of my cooking was done intuitively. (…add a pinch of this, a little pinch of that….)
But as my kids are getting older and starting to leave the nest, I want them to be able to have the meals they always had at home. So my goal here is to provide the recipes and the methods I used when preparing those meals.
I won’t be offended if they change up the recipes or improve upon them for their own families. Afterall, I changed up a lot of the dishes from my own childhood to cater to our tastes today. And there are always better and better ways of doing things. I actually look forward to seeing what they will do and learning from them, too.
But for now, I will pass down my recipes, one by one, and give as much advice as I have.
