Grew up cooking from about 10. Dad did most of the daily meals; mom the special occasions. Middle sister taught me to bake (starting with cookies, of course). Love all kinds of food (Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Persian, BBQ, etc. etc. etc.) to eat and to make. First kitchen remodel, installed a Viking range myself (ok, two friends helped carry the thing). Second kitchen remodel installed a Thermador Induction cooktop == Heaven! (Soooo much faster & sooo much cooler in the kitchen.)
Recent health issues have impacted cooking significantly. Am now looking for heart-healthy/low sugar recipes and approaches to cooking. It's been frustrating (can't eat that, this or that anymore, so what DO I eat?). I cooked healthily before, just have to do it even more. Hoping for good advice/tips from this forum.
