Growing up without my biological mom around I never really learned to cook. My dad worked full time so I didn't really know there were other food groups besides Round Table Pizza for awhile!
Eventually he caught up and became an excellent cook for me and my brother, but not much of a teacher.
Thankfully enough I've been blessed to have some amazing moms in my life that may have not given birth to me, but basically taught me everything I know about being a woman/wife.
I remember when me and my husband 1st got married, not gonna lie it was intimidating unwrapping all that kitchen ware and not knowing what the hell any of it did! lol But one thing I learned that you can never go wrong with, TACOS!
One thing i love about tacos- you can totally fake the funk all the way through! You can literally buy everything you need pre made and it just becomes a matter or warming up, assembling, and plating!
For example: One of my all time favorite taco recipes includes a package of Pollo Asada from any grocery store, Mexican style cheese, a can of refried beans,lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, limes and VOILA! You are making tacos!
*Tip! You want to make it look like you did more work than you actually did? Plating! Plating is huge! Grab those serving dishes you registered for but didn't know why, and nicely plate your meal. Cut up some lime wedges and look! Mira! How fancy!
*Tip! Don't be afraid to try different topping or garnishes! Your husband likes black olives? Throw some on top! Cooking is all about trial and error! Don't be intimidated! Cilantro, Radishes, Bell Peppers! Try them all!
See how easy that was?? And guess what! The best part is, whoever "cooks" doesn't have to do the dishes :)
Tell em I said so!
