|Stormy, it's so good to see you posting again! My recipe browsing is typically just to get ideas too- I cook according to what I've got on hand most days, rather than shopping just for recipes (unless its for something special). It's the negative reviews after making lots of changes that bothers me, but I do change them to suite my tastes lots of times too. I can't stand waste, I love the way the kitchen you worked in operated! I wish the kitchen at the event venue where I work was run as efficiently- way too much goes to waste there. The good thing is I get to bring stuff home. In the last few days I brought home a bunch of tomatoes, mushrooms, and basil, so I made up some sauce and froze it. I bring home meat trimmings, bones, ham hocks, and anything else I can salvage some flavor or nutrition from. We end up with lots of partial bottles of wine after events, so I bring them home, reduce them way down, and freeze the syrup in ice trays. It's great always having wine reduction on hand to toss in soups and sauces!
Oh, just thought of something Stormy, do you eat sprouts? I've been sprouting broccoli lately- I always crave sprouts in spring. They're so packed with nutritional goodness, may be a good addition to your diet
