Cookbooks are wonderful. There are about 100 in a corner of my kitchen and oversized versions have a place on larger bookshelves elsewhere in our home. But through the years, daily cooking has been less about the recipes and more about free-form cooking. It’s fun and a little risky, because there is the occasional flop. What I really like about free-form cooking is the opportunity to be creative
and let the food take the lead. It’s creating a healthy, good tasting meal with whatever is in the ‘fridge, in the freezer or in the pantry.
