I love creating new recipes. Sometimes the recipes aren't really "new" but variations on a theme. Either way much of what I do is try to create dishes that will have a broad appeal while at the same time being healthy and tasty. The dish might be something very familiar like Tuna Noodle Casserole, or maybe a riff on a taco recipe like Salmon Salad Tacos. Often my wife will say something like, "I want a sort of black bean and corn soup but really thick like a stew." That serves as the spark for a new dish.
Generally speaking, when I begin the process it takes a fairly predictable format. How to Create Your Own Recipes
This stew has a number of steps, but it's actually pretty easy, and it only uses one pot so clean up is quick and easy. It has it all: veggies, beans, whole grains, good quality oil and lean meat. Five categories from Mediterranean style diet in one stew pot. Simple, tasty and great for you.
Did I say I'm a cook? That my recreational reading generally involves recipes?
So I have loved cooking for a long time and therefore I have the requisite array of pots, pans, spice, herbs, and general time management skills which cooking with recipes requires. What I think is ingenious about the recipes in this book is that they are written so well that my husband (who is not such a cook) follows them with ease! This is a good thing because we rely on him to prepare at least half of the dinners during a normal week and now I get both service and well-prepared food! That said, preparation is definitely the key to success (as Dr. Gourmet stresses). Be Prepared
