    Default How would you describe your cooking style?

    French farmhouse is the term I'd use. delicious home style cooking that's heavy on flavour and naughty rich ingredients like cream, butter etc.

    my food mantra is that consuming it should be a pleasurable experience, food is never merely about function. if you're not enjoying it, then you're doing it wrong.

    following on from that, I love nothing more than to create delicious home style food that comforts and delights my loved ones. seeing people I care about enjoying my food gives me such a high.

    I endeavor to turn even dull weeknight meals into something delicious and special. luckily my dh is on the same page as me so dining in our home is something that's taken pretty seriously and it's always a deeply pleasurable experience.

    Can we be friends??

    I could have written that. Cooking for me is about the pleasure of serving people.

    A bit of everything.

    kind of boring atm. dads living with us and is strictly a 'meat and three veg' kinda guy which infuriates me to no end.

    i love my stir fries and soups quiche etc...but no... our menu is meat and veg (5-6 nights a week)

    My style can be referred to as "spice laden".

    I don't do bland or plain anything.

    I am basic and budget friendly.
    I would love to be like you @turquoisescoat but my budget doesn't allow it. It sounds divine.

    ETA I do cook from scratch, but by lazy I mean minimal effort, quick to make, the less ingredients the better, bonus points if I have all ingredients on hand and the kids will eat it.

    Varied!

    I don't stick to particular styles of cuisine. I enjoy cooking and like to try new recipes on the regular.

    We love chilli and spices, so I often make Mexican, Thai & Indian style meals. I also like Italian & Greek style food.

    As a rule I do try and choose meals that don't have a huge list of ingredients, as it usually involves extra time and expense that I can't spare.
