Welcome to Recipe Realism – where real thinking and home-cooking come together!
When it comes to cooking, I do not like being left so exhausted at the end of a meal’s preparation that I cannot thoroughly enjoy my efforts. For the longest time, I thought exhaustion was just the price I had to pay for my love of cooking good meals. Either that or cut the time spent with an ‘easy’ but dissatisfying meal. I have since realized that ‘easy’ doesn’t have to equal dissatisfying and ‘good’ does not have to equal exhaustion!
Nowadays, as a self-proclaimed realist and a home-cooking enthusiast, I love finding simple recipes that provide taste and sustenance. With my new-found approach, I get more enjoyment out of cooking. And a lot of times I’m able to make so-called ‘easy’ recipes even easier!
Here at Recipe Realism I invite you to share in my home-cooking adventures. I enjoy sharing my first-hand experiences with real, simple and tasty recipes. I also like to include cooking tips, cheats and even kitchen mishaps – hey, let’s get real, not every recipe will turn out perfect!
When I’m not cooking, I enjoy reading, watching movies/TV, a good workout (Zumba, Pilates, and Yoga are favorites!), hanging with friends, volunteering at a local pet rescue shelter and relaxing with my husband and our adorably ornery cat. I also enjoy hosting get-togethers – although, yes, partly as an excuse to cook more.
Have something to share? Tips, suggestions, etc.? Post a comment or shoot an email to email@example.com.
