Having Fun With All Kinds Of Recipes

A new recipe can add spice to the dinner table, enhance a meal that a regular at your house, or add to your wonderful, growing collection of recipes for meals at a later date.

A recipe consists of two or more ingredients blended together. Some recipes require too many ingredients, making organization very difficult. The instructions can be as simple as mixing two things together, or as involved as several different steps to get to the ultimate step of putting the meal in the oven for final cooking. The fact is the more effort that goes into the recipe to get it right, the better it will be.

Some cooks keep a collection of spices, herbs, and other ingredients that they use on a regular basis in a certain part of their cupboard. These items are always available, as they are signature to the tastes of the meals of that particular cook. It might be Greek oregano or Mexican chili powder, or Jamaican jerk. Then there are items bought, never to be used again. But they were an absolute necessity for that one special dish that was to be prepared on that special occasion.

When you become really experimental, you may try recipes from different countries. You may want to try your hand at Chinese food. A Caribbean meal may be challenging. Or you may try something with saffron and rice from the Middle East.

The spices, you will find, are the biggest difference when you begin to cook meals from other countries. You will see, also, that certain types of meat and vegetables are used in other regions, as well. India, for example, uses a lot of lamb in theirs, whereas Mexicans use mostly beef, and Chinese have many using chicken.

And if you like collecting books and magazines, there is a never ending supply that you can encounter on-line, in stores, and at flea markets and thrift outlets about cooking. There are cook books about burgers, casseroles, and shell fish. You will find others on crepes, and one-pot meals, and thirty-minute dishes. There are books that only include cooking for Christmas, or stir fry, or deep frying. And the list goes on, and then there are magazines.

You will encounter all types of collectable cook books at thrift shops, book stores, used book stores, yard sales, and on line. There are many types of collectible books like this, such as collections that have been placed in binders from someone who became a member of a cooking club. These people have received them each month, sometimes for years. There are cook books that have annual collections in them for the year. There are magazine collections in binders, too. And still other people collect their recipes and then write them on index cards and put their favorite ones into an index box. If one is organized, it will not drive you crazy. At least you will not need to worry about the cook book closing up on you while you are cooking from a recipe in it.

You can collect healthy recipes forever, but the very best cooks do not even need them.
