It's no secret that I spend very little time in the kitchen aside from decorating. I'm a terrible cook, and when house chef Robbie is on the road, I live off of Amy's Organic frozen meals and take-out. I've also been a vegetarian for 22 years, and literally have no idea how to cook meat - which isn't exactly appealing to the majority of foodies out there. My sister, however, inherited our father's prowess for gourmet cooking. She's a high school teacher by day, but her evenings are filled with preparation of some seriously amazing meals. She's a huge fan of trying new foods and bringing together interesting recipes to come up with original concoctions of her own. There is a twist though... Her husband/BFF/biggest cooking fan, Josh, is an incredibly picky eater, and doesn't like branching out from his favorites. So how does she, as a lover of cooking for herself and her hubby together, solve this dilemma? How does one cook unique, delicious meals for two opposites? That's what you'll find out, in our newest feature, Sweet and Sour!
I'll leave the rest of the introduction to Morgan. And check back tomorrow for her first Sweet + Sour recipe post! Enjoy!
After 14 years together, and weekly struggles about trying to get him to try new things, my sister and I talked about me writing this new feature for Bubby and Bean. What you will read includes both my favorite recipes to make for the two of us, and those I make just for me. I am certainly not a professionally trained chef, but I have a dad who taught me well and who used to claim that the only woman he’d marry other than my mom is Julia Child. I’ve been cooking from the moment I could hold a wooden spoon and I’ve had 14 years of successes and failures when trying to cook for just the two of us. I hope you enjoy the recipes, and the stories that go along with them!
Be sure to visit Bubby and Bean again tomorrow (Friday). I'll be sharing a really yummy recipe I made for myself this week while my man was in Florida.
