I’ve worked on websites and have been an avid home cook for years. I finally broke down and decided to combine the two passions to see what happens.
I’ve set up the Recipe Workbook as a repository for recipes that I enjoy cooking at home. I have a scattered mind, so I’ll likely veer from one regional cuisine to the next to the point that you might get a little whiplash.
That’s how we eat at home though. One day we’ll be eating birria tacos and the next we’ll end up with a Moroccan style tagine. The next week we’ll have a vegan meal followed the next day by piles of barbecued pork.
While browsing this website, you might notice that none of the recipes are all that authentic to any particular region or cuisine. I don’t attempt to make them authentic. I just make what I think tastes good to me. As with anybody else, my palate is different than the palates of other people, especially people that grew up with a different set of flavors and ingredients.
One thing I especially like is garlic. Whenever I find a recipe on the internet or in a cookbook that calls for garlic, I always add extra. Sometimes twice as much or more. If you don’t like garlic, or are sensitive to it, you might want to consider adjusting the garlic levels down in my recipes.
Finally, I’m not a trained chef and don’t pretend to be. I don’t and have never run a restaurant. I’m a just home cook that tries to learn something new whenever I can.
