    I'm a pretty good cook, honestly I don't even know how. Lol when it comes to Italian food, and any sort of meat, sautéed veggies, or "kind of Chinese style plates", I never follow any recipes, never use "pre-made seasonings or sauces. Well, rarely on the sauces. One thing I do...

    I Want to Become a Better Cook

    Becoming a better cook is definitely a goal of mine. Sometimes I think it may have to wait until I retire as I never seem to have the time. I never learned much about cooking growing up. My mother typically wanted us out of her hair and out of the kitchen which was her domain. I...

    One likes to think so anyway. I may get others thinking differently, but so long as I think I'm good. Then I'm good. After all, I made some excellent Hot chocolate yesterday. Three giant jugs full, because I could possibly be greedy when it comes to chocolate.
