I no there is no try, only do. But you have to try and do to get better. I have ventured a couple toes back into the water of being a competent cook. DH and I have officially been indoctrinated into the world of America’s Test Kitchen. The recipes are tested – which speaks to my science-y schooling and upbringing. The best recipes give me a chance to be good.
I still fumble and stumble in the kitchen. But I am trying. And inch by inch I get better. Last night I made this taco salad – not much “cooking” other than making my own taco seasoning and lime vinaigrette. Yummy, taco-y baby steps.
