I've been cooking since I can remember. As the oldest of five a large majority of what I was cooking was very large scale and so when I moved out and started cooking on my own I had a hard time adjusting. I now have it down and love to cook for my boyfriend and myself. I try to freeze stuff so that it is easier to eat well and economically throughout the week. I also pack my work lunches and so make shopping lists based on menu plans for the week. Was difficult at first but really like it now because it is fun and nice to know I am saving money!
