No Perfect Cook

I came from a family who loves to cook. My grandmothers on both sides were the best cooks. My father is also a good cook and I am delighted that they passed on that passion to me. However there are times that what I cooked taste way too salty or sometimes a little bland. Just like this “chicken adobo with egg”.

My husband said it’s as salty as deadsea salt. I don’t measure ingredients when I cook. I just balance the ingredients based on the food’s taste. And maybe this time I miscalculated the measurement of soy sauce.

“There’s no perfect cook. I maybe good but I’m not perfect and so are other cooks out there”. This is what I told my husband. I was not pissed off. I just wanted to clear that it really happens. Yes, sometimes it hurts because after an hour plus in the kitchen preparing the meal, you’ll hear negative comments. But then, his criticisms help me to know what ingredients to adjust the next time I cook the same food.

How about you, do you like it when your husband tells that he does not like much the food you prepare?

    Well by next time you can estimate the salt for the recipe to taste. Besides, you can taste the sauce if it’s too salty or not.

  2. i loved cooking. its my way of expressing my feelings. a simple recipe is enough. as much as im happy with it. Experementing is a greeat idea. try it .

  3. I am no-perfect cook too but I am aware about the deadsea salt and the benefits we can get from it. 🙂

  4. i so love adobo, yes i love to cook but i could not say that i am good at it though it’s always safe to say that it taste good.

    thanks for sharing.

  5. I admit I am really a terrible cook. I tried so many times and failed many times too. But I still try sometimes. My husband is always happy when I cook even if it will not turn out well.
