I'm a recently married woman in my mid-late twenties. While I have always been vegetarian, I have not always been a cook. I find cooking to be a form of meditation that allows me to forget everything while I'm chopping, planning, and cooking food. I'm a strong believer that eating and sharing this good food strengthens relationship. It also helps me appreciate food as it should be.
I tend to cook international foods. My cooking style also usually involves cooking one large main dish. I rarely have sides with my dinners. I also tend to cook a lot of food, so that I can have a lot left over for lunches the following day. You might find, as a single person, that the serving amounts will leave you with leftovers for a week.
I am not much of a baker...yet. I can see myself getting more involved, but I find it more boring in preparing it all.
If you have a recipe, please share it with me, I'd be super happy to try!
