Recently, I have had a lot of stomach issues. Well not recently, this past year. Anyways, because of the many things I have had to cut out of my diet I have started to cook a lot more from scratch. This way I can cook what I want and not include all the things that bother me. I have always enjoyed cooking, but I feel like I'm starting to get more into it recently. I cooked a whole chicken (six lbs) for the first time the other week and it turned out great. I was very excited. I have made chicken tenders, flounder, and all sorts of things. Making things from scratch is also helpful when I crave a particular food, but can't eat it for one reason or another. I have gotten good at substituting ingredients for safe ingredients which lets me make a healthier version of the food. This way I can satisfy my craving. So yea for cooking. I think I will be posting some of my recipes to keep a record of all the great ones that I turn out.
