When I was growing up my mother cooked all of our foods. At that time there really wasn’t any convenient food available and she has always loved to cook, bake and try new recipes. Quite often she just cooks from her head without any specific recipes, but loves to explore and try new things. Spices and herbs have always been part of the experience and we us children were never forced to eat something we didn’t like, just encouraged to try. As I was watching her I learned the basics myself and have always cooked everything from fresh ingredients. I believe my tastebuds have learnt to like that and I don’t usually like any fast foods.
After I left home to live on my own, I properly started cooking and baking myself. I followed some of he basic knowledge I had, but have always enjoyed trying out new recipes. I tend to buy cooking books whenever I see one I like. Sometimes by visiting bookstores and sometimes just looking for inspiration on Amazon or online. Quite often it is inspired by a new ingredient or vegetable I want to try. I am not a vegetarian, but I do like my fruits, berries and veggies so tend to use them a lot. I wanted to share a few of my favourite recipe books with you to inspire you to try new things. Cooking doesn’t have to be time consuming, most of the time simple recipes are tasty and definitely more healthy than ready made meals. I hope you will enjoy them! Read the full post
