As much as I like to read health and fitness articles, I’m always on the lookout for food and cooking websites that offer new and exciting recipes to add to my collection. Unfortunately, with three small children and a full time job, I simply don’t have enough time to get creative in the kitchen. So, I try to keep my cooking simple with few ingredients and simple steps. A lot of times I quickly prepare a dish, set the timer, and throw it in the oven while I go about the rest of my business. Sometimes I even time it so that dinner will be done cooking just as I return from my run.
However, just because I keep it simple most of the time doesn’t mean that I don’t dream big. I never miss an opportunity to print out recipes that make my mouth water. In fact, I’ve been holding onto a great recipe for eggplant parmesan for way too long. The recipe involves frying the eggplant first, then breading it, and then baking it in the oven. Right here and now I am setting a goal to attempt this recipe by the end of the month. I know I can totally do it, if I just set aside some time. Maybe my wife will even join me for an in-house cooking date. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
Do you shy away from recipes that seem too complicated?
