I love trying new things, especially when it turns out really good (because, like you, I also am like “why didn’t I do this sooner?” lol. My only problem, specifically when it comes to cooking, is following recipes. I loathe following recipes… just because of measuring stuff. I don’t want to measure, and usually I don’t when I know what I’m doing, but when it comes to new food… I measure the hell out of everything.
Last night was one of those nights. I made honey garlic chicken and it was delicious! I followed this recipe—which it actually isn’t that bad nor is there a lot of ingredients—and then I had a side of baked squash and zucchini (salt, pepper, drizzle of avocado oil).
Lettuce, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper, salt, pepper, avocado oil, and a pepperchini (I like to squeeze the juices out). The salads I typically have always need ranch and it actually hasn’t been that healthy for me anyway, so I’m glad I found a combination of veggies to make it yummy again.
Also, yours looks amazing as well! What’s your ingredients?
I think that’s the same for me, too. I’ve made things by measuring stuff and I either put too much in or not enough in and it makes it bad.
Depends on what day and what I’m doing. I figured out that I’m more of a prep cook: which is why I fine-dice meats and veggies for stuffing. Like today? Mushrooms, chicken, potatoes, celery, mustard greens, onions, cream cheese and cheddar for stuffed mushrooms and egg roll wraps.
When you say prep cook, you are saying in a sense that you prepare the ingredients and stuff before you decide to make the dish or you have a slight idea of what you want to do so you prepare ahead of time?
Forgive me if I misunderstand!
Do you have any pictures of your dish? I am curious to know what it looks like or is it similar to another dish.
