It was a fall afternoon. It was grocery day. We were making our menu plan for the following two weeks and I was searching through various cookbooks, bunches of scratch pieces of paper with scribbles on them, recipe cards, Word documents on my computer, and bookmarked websites online.
"This is ridiculous," I muttered in frustration, "I need it all in one place."
And then the idea was born... I needed an electronic archive of all of my recipes. Then began the search for how to do it. It didn't take me long to decide that I wanted something I could organize and categorize myself and access from anywhere. My bloggy brain went into action and soon a new blog was born: "Mi Querida Cocina," named after my other blog. I was going to keep it private, but I changed my mind when it was easier to share my recipes by just handing over a url rather than emailing or copying something. So here you have it... my "recipe box" for all to share and use.
I might as well warn you now. The majority of the recipes are not healthy in the slightest. Or maybe they are. I really have no idea. I just don't pay attention. Also, I am a simple cook. If it has more than 5 ingredients (not counting spices) I probably won't try cooking it. If the ingredient list includes more than one item I haven't used before, I probably won't try it. And if it doesn't knock my socks off with how yummy it is, I might not post it.
So with that said... roam freely and let me know what you like in Mi Cocina.
