These days I’m grateful for the basic cooking skills I acquired via Most Moisturized Mom, Grandma Mabel, and the Camp Fire Girls. (All very different cuisines, all still in my repertoire.)
Now that my household is hunkered down together (me and three young adults: kids plus godson) instead of scattered to the four winds and college dining halls, I’m tying on my apron every evening. No matter how simple, dinner is the highlight of every day.
A favorite search phrase I’ll give you for free: one pot. This improbable spaghetti recipe is so delicious that I will probably make it every week for the rest of my days. For one thing, it’s fun to start off by dumping a box of spaghetti into a dry pan. Like, who does that?
But you know what else has been super helpful? MDK’s collection of cooking columns. Between Judy Wright’s sheet pan suppers and Carrington Fox’s slow cooker odyssey, I’m feeding the 5,000 (OK just the four) with ease. So grateful to these two Nashvillians of yours.
Beloved readers, what are you cooking? Links please! I would love nothing more than a comment thread resembling a sauce-spattered, comb-bound Lions Club recipe book. There are a lot of staying-home suppers ahead, and we can’t have one-pot spaghetti every night.
