When I was young (I mean before I got married), I was never interested in learning how to cook or bake. When my mom didn’t cook, I waited until my dad would cook. If my dad didn’t cook either, I fixed Ramen. When there was no Ramen at home, I filled my tummy up with water. I assume this is what most teenagers might do, but on top of that, I had absolutely no interest in cooking. However, things changed. Someone has to cook when I got married.
I just started following recipes without knowing what I was doing. For the first couple of years, 10% of food that I cooked went into a trashcan after attempting to eat, I burned 20% of food that I cooked (I am somewhat impatient when the time comes to cooking) and also went into a trashcan; however, surprisingly 70% of food that I cooked was EDIBLE! And, some of them were pretty good or similar taste to the food that I had at restaurants.
I enjoy dining out time to time – exploring new food at different places, but I prefer cooking at home more than going out. I still burn things when I cook, but have learned to be patient one at a time. And, I have to admit that I love cooking as much as I love baking. Over the past few years, I have taken photos of not only baking goods but also food that I cooked. So, I want to share with you.
