I found a love for cooking after I had my children. Once life slowed down a bit I started cherishing food more. I most like a lot of people started watching those food cooking shows on the food network channel and the cooking channel. I started educating myself on the different ways to cook and utilizing different ingredients. I started using more fresh herbs and vegetables while cooking. I absolutely love going to the fresh food market and the butcher more often instead of the prepackaged meats. It is amazing how food tastes better with fresh herbs. I sprinkled some dried herbs on top just for the presentation. One of my first meals that I used fresh vegetables is my double meat lasagne.
