People generally enjoy lkredhat's recipes.
I made a vow about 2 years ago to see if I can add more fruits and vegetables to my diet, while cutting back on sweets and processed starches. I figured that would probably be more successful for me than "diet ing" and overall, I think it's improving my health and my husband's health.
I have a lot of Asian and Southwestern and Mediterranean influences in my cooking, but truthfully it's mostly crazy California melange style. Lots of dishes get made up, depending on what's on hand. I try to cook ahead and always have rice, pasta or potatoes on hand.
I love reading recipes and enjoy reading books like "Cookwise" that instruct me on the chemistry of cooking. But if a recipe is too complicated, I probably won't make it--I just don't have the attention span or the time for the extensive clean-up!. I will eat everything but my DH is "Mr. Fussy." I'm always looking for ways to cook faster, fresher, lighter and cheaper while still satisfying Mr. Fussy.
If I don't accept a "friend" request right away, don't feel hurt--I'm just busy! Read more
