My love of cooking goes waaay back, but now that my husband and I are "empty nesters" I have both the time and freedom to stretch my culinary muscles a bit.
If I were limited to only two things I could cook, it would be bread and pie. Both have limitless possibilities and for me are very meditative. The added bonus of course, it that there isn't a much better smell than fresly baked bread in your home.
My interests aren't limited to baking, and I have been know to try my hand at various cuisines and even smoking meat.
The process of exploring, testing and tasting is every changing and completely exciting to me!
