    As it is steadily snowing a lot outside,

    I think it is stew weather so I threw into a big stew pot the following: chicken, carrots, turnip, potatoes, leak, pearl onions, chicken stock, vegetable stock, turmeric, black pepper, cumin, garlic, basil, and thyme. And all this is stewing now. I look forward to it.

    Today I made a spinach & mushroom lasagne,

    just on an impulse, without a recipe. It all began with a bag of spinach at the veggie section, on my shopping tour yesterday. It was like "pick *me* today!". So I did. I gathered together some brown mushrooms, fresh green and dry red onions, cream for cooking, and organic...

    But hate cleaning so I think I'm going to whip

    up some fancy Thai food, walk into the kitchen, remember what a pain in the *** doing dishes is, and end up eating a can of ravioli. Making my mother proud one processed can of dinner at a time.

    Dinner tonight was mirin glazed salmon.

    I got this recipe from my newly acquainted aunt, who in turn got it from the Nigella Express recipe book. It is sooo good. I had it with freshly sliced fennel and curly kale. My kids had it with regular greens (of course).

    I love to cook and to try out new recipes.

    Recently my husband was diagnosed with high blood pressure, so I am now trying to learn to cook without salt and without using a lot of prepared foods. Anyone who has any links to any good sites for healthy recipes pls pass them along :)

    Sometimes I mess up,

    but most of the time I don't. But that's not what matters. What matters is if I've enjoyed making the food and if the people I'm cooking for like it as well.

    The first thing I ever cooked on my own was

    Ramen noodles. One lazy Sunday, my mom was sick and I wanted to make her something. So I walked into her room and subtly asked: "Hey mom, how do you make noodles?" She told me, get a pan, pour some water into it, put it on the stove, turn the switch to 7 and when the water...

    homemade ricotta and sauce. It turned out amazing, but my kitchen now looks like a disaster zone and I have zero motivation to clean.
