I really enjoy cooking, probably because I really love eating. My mom repeatedly refuses to make a cookbook for me, but she does send me pictures of what she makes all the time. I wanted to compile some of the things that I've made, along with some very basic instructions.
Typically when I look at a recipe, I tend to ignore measurements and cooking times. Instead, I just sorta taste it repeatedly while cooking and add until it tastes "right". In that same spirit, I don't think any of these recipes will have measurements or times either!
My favorite cookbook right now is Samin Nosrat's Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, which really goes into some of the principles of cooking. Check it out!
There are some recipes that I really enjoy but have already been written up very well from other sources. See this list of recipes for those links.
