I’m no Julia Child or Jamie Oliver, but I’m a decent home cook and reserve a couple of heirloom recipes in my repertoire.

Fact is, most of us don’t run restaurants and professional kitchens every day. It’s about figuring out what to put on the dinner table or experimenting with new foods.

Sometimes I try out established recipes for the joy of cooking, but it’s also to challenge myself to achieve something new.

More often not, however, I have no set menu to rely on and just make the best of the ingredients I find in the fridge or give leftovers a new life. The keywords to my everyday cooking are: SIMPLE, EASY and QUICK!
