Also, perhaps more importantly, IDGAF about cooking. I think it is an amazing art that I enjoy in others, but in which I personally have zero interest or talent. You do it well, so I don’t have to.Yeah, I'm the primary cook in my house. I do it because I enjoy it and @Angie is ****ing terrible at it. I do pretty well with pan sauces. I don't really use recipes, just recipe frameworks that I play around with depending on what we have on hand or what I'm in the mood for.
I dabble in lots of things, and have some dishes that I'm stronger at than others, but nothing that I would call my specialty. Gun to my head, I'd say I make really good enchiladas.
I think it is incredible that you all are such great cooks. And it sounds like mostly self-taught, which is crazy to me! It takes a refined palate to know when something needs more sage or cumin or thyme or whatever.
