I have never been a very active cook and always told folks I didn't cook (don't really entertain either). But I was laid off from my job in 2012 and decided to conquer my resistance to cooking. I found this wonderful website (Food 52) when I was trying to figure out what to do with a butternut squash (no one ever said I take the easy challenge). I've continued to find wonderful recipes here and I'm still cooking. I'm getting much braver and will add to recipes from what I have in the refrigerator. I've had a few flops, but for the most part my husband has been eating what I cook. I found out recently that he had actually been raving about my cooking. I felt very proud of that.
