Y'all are getting waaaaaay out of my cooking league.
Don't think that way!!!!!!
I am amazed at what the DDs are teaching me as far as cooking easy & delicious.
DD#1 comes home from school and all of a sudden balsamic vinegar is a must do for salad dressings. Her dressing is simple, olive oil and balsamic mix well and lightly drizzle on the salad . . . it's a huge difference from any of the bottled dressings that I usually buy (and drown my salad in.)
She's also added things to the salad like sliced mushrooms, dried cranberries, nuts and red onions. I felt her forehead one day thinking she was ill . . . "Whatever happened to the little girl I knew that always said ewww! to onions!?" All of a sudden with a few easy steps my usual salad (of iceburg lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes . . . boring!) has been transformed into something amazingly yummy.
DD#2 has requested "different" foods for dinner . . . that's why I posted here for recipes for salmon and lamb.
I thought that salmon and lamb was soooo completely out of my league of cooking.
You know, gourmet stuff. Not my usual home hardy meats and potatoes.
I've tried 3 of the salmon recipes that were posted here . . . I was amazed to find how simple and easy those recipes were.
The lamb was delicious and oh so easy to prepare.
I guess what I'm trying to say is don't be scared.
The recipes posted from doodlemor and Kaypeep? Use to be out of my league. But I'm going to be adventurous and try them.
Go for it, Dark Magdalena! Try something completely different.
Maybe you'll be happy that you did.
