I love collecting recipe books. Now cooking is another matter!
I am a pretty fussy eater and not likely to try many new things; sad huh? The one thing I wish is that I had learned how to cook and bake when I was younger. Finally, at 50 I have discovered an interest in it. I love to look at cookbooks and wish that I had some of those foods for my family, but I am leary about trying to make them for fear of failure. I think part of it is coming from a family that didn't have a lot of money and every ingredient counted as far as what was consumed. It's hard to tell myself that it is okay to experiment a little. I find that I feel 'responsible' for what foods my family likes and dislikes. Instead of cooking new foods, I find that I am always just trying to make what they like. Well, they definitely won't starve, so it's take it or leave it time, lol.
Thanks to everyone for their contributions to the 'pot' so to speak; for making dinner time not so 'traumatic' of a deal for me now that I don't have to think up something on my own anymore. I have all of you to 'guide' me on my new adventure.
Please teach your sons and daughters how to cook; more than just pancakes or desserts, lol.
Good luck! LAJ
Some of my favorite foods are:
Potato Soup w/French Bread and a Salad; or
A good Steak w/a Baked Potato; or
I can make a 'mean' potato salad and great deviled eggs. And I like to make desserts; unfortunately, they like me too.
Did you know that desserts is 'stressed' spelled backwards. My husband says that when I stress about money, I always make cookies. I didn't realize that until he pointed it out.
