I grew up the youngest of six children and my house was always filled with people and chaos. Meals oftened varied depending on who was cooking and who was eating. Somehow I was the only one that ending up eating everything, probably out of survival haha. My siblings are pretty picky in my mind considering we all grew up eating the same things. I branched out as I got older and was the type willing to try anything. I've been making meals for myself since I was a kid but it wasn't until I first lived alone that I began experimenting and really enjoying to cook. Luckily I had enough skill to get me by but I give AR a lot of credit for all the ideas and inspiration I could draw from others. I'm the type of person that likes to have a recipe to follow. And while I've become much more comfortable and knowledgeable over the years I still like having a plan and direction.
