I started cooking simple dish in the kitchen just like my adobo meal. In fact, it took me several attempts before I learned the perfect mix of soy sauce and vinegar for this Filipino style recipe. I've mastered the art of cooking canned goods too. My husband says I cook the best corned beef! I did a lot of frying before I can cook soup-based recipes. Also, I learned to cook pork first, before I can cook fish.
I enjoy cooking simple recipes at home probably because I love eating. Today, I have several dishes to choose from when I cook for my husband. I enjoy cooking Filipino style recipes the most, since we're both familiar with the Pinoy flavors. I still commit cooking mishaps along the way; but I learn each time I make mistakes.
Simple home cooking is a learning process for me. I guess this should be true to everyone. For someone who is new in cooking, starting to cook with something simple is the best way to learn.
