I've been so uninspired to cook anything new. A couple of days ago I asked some friends/family what their signature dishes are. The replies: hamburgers, ribs, mac-n-cheese, meatloaf, chicken wings, cupcakes, brownies, arroz con pollo and shrimp wontons. What did this little survey tell me? When given a choice, people prefer simple, no-nonsense food. Aside from the arroz con pollo, which takes a bit of time to prepare, and the shrimp wontons (I must get the recipe)... it's all pretty standard.
In a little over 6 months I've posted close to 150 recipes. At this point, my husband is asking for a steak and baked potato already... jeez. So for now I'm slowing it down to gather my resources and recipes for the holidays. I've just about made anything Cuban that my family will eat (and a lot that they wouldn't), so I may have to venture once again into uncharted waters! I'll be back.
