My Culinary Repertoir


As the Adult Who Eats Like a Five-Year-Old, I tend to go on binges, eating the same thing at every meal for days or weeks at a time, due to lack of creativity, convenience or just because it's there. Dozing off last night, I decided I need a List to remind myself of the things I can make basically from scratch, when I think the only option is to resort to expensive frozen convenience meals. These items are occasionally by recipe, often improvised, but always things that I know will work, and do not have to be questioned in case of a special meal. The List will be revised and updated periodically.

Postscript: I've now updated this list to include most of the recipes I've posted on the blog, whether simple or difficult. It's a great, handy index of quick links.
