Prior to my ever hearing about the movie Julie and Julia, realeased August, 2009, I came up with an idea to make 52 different Sunday dinners at my house over the course of one year. Present would always be my "saintly" common-law husband Peter, my beloved 29-year-old son Elijah and his ever-thoughtful girlfriend Sabrina carrying my precious grand-darling Arianna along with any family or close friends who happen to be in town. I only half realized the great challenge before me as I tended to eat a very limited diet on a day-to-day basis. Thanks to Recipezaar I've simplified this challenge somewhat with the "ingredient" search engine alone. While never copying anyone's recipe exactly, I've been inspired by the volume and variety of delicious-sounding dishes at my fingertips. I Thank all contributors for taking the time to share. I'm approaching week 34 tomorrow. Thus far, based on the kids' weekly ratings, I have two five stars!! I'll publish them soon. In the meantime, Happy Cooking!!!
I cook for nutrition first and foremost. Taste and presentation are equally important seconds. Ambiance is the third key ingredient. I always try to make my 52 Different Delectable Dinners fun.
I frequently cook with: garlic, red-green-yellow-and orange peppers, spinach, carrots, broccoli, chicken and mushrooms.
I don't have a favorite restaurant because I do not eat out much. I greatly prefer my own cooking for it's nutritional quality and taste.
