“Striving for brilliance in everyday cooking is a recipe for frustration. Instead, everyday cooking is about preparing good, wholesome, tasty, varied meals for you and the ones you love. This is a simple, satisfying pleasure. Your results need not be perfect to give you this gift, to which everyone is entitled.”
Call to Action:
- Choose simple, less complex dishes to prepare.
- Select healthy recipes with fewer, but good quality ingredients, and handle them minimally.
- If you do the first two, then be satisfied with the food you prepare, knowing it is nutritious and benefits you and your family.

Source of today’s tip is from Mark Bittman in How to Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food. He says he does #1 and #2 above more and more each year. “I am usually satisfied with the food I prepare, but I am the first to admit that it is very rarely on the same level as that served in the world’s best restaurants. (It’s better, however, than that served in the vast majority of restaurants.)”
p.s. Is the food you prepare better (healthier and more nutritious) than what the vast majority of restaurants prepare?
