Yeah, yeah, cooking can be messy but so worth it!!! I taught myself to cook by reading cook books cover to cover and trying this and that and driving people crazy begging for recipes. I can cook. Few things are so enjoyable as our eyes opening extra wide, in delight, while we taste some outstanding new flavor dancing on reverent taste buds. YUM. This picture shows chicken in garlic and mushroom and spinach in a Parmesan béchamel type sauce. Words fail to describe its yummy factor.
