I say this all the time because it’s true – some of the best meals I’ve ever had have been the easiest to prepare. Great food doesn’t always depend on expensive ingredients or a confusingly long recipe to make it great. Simple ingredients and basic cooking methods can produce mouthwatering meals. My Easy Lemon Garlic Chicken is all the proof I need.
I read so many emails from people who are distraught, claiming they can’t cook and therefore are dependent on processed foods and drive thru menus to feed their families. I’m telling you right now that the only thing you need to become a fantastic cook is the simple desire to do so. Once you make up your mind that you’ll give it a try you’ll continually surprise yourself at how easy it is. The trick is to start with the basics, but always challenge yourself.
