None of my friends (at least not my friends in LA) cook. They complain about not knowing how to cook or not having the desire to learn. So I decided to offer up prepared Suzie Foods so that after a long day of work, people can come home, pull some delicious homemade food from the freezer, heat it up and enjoy it without worrying about how it was made and if it's got crazy preservatives in it.
But here's the thing. I LOVE to cook. Right now, when a normal person would be enjoying breakfast, I'm simmering a pot of garlicky delicious black beans. Cooking for myself allows me to know exactly what is and isn't in my food. I love that I can flavor dishes just how I like them. I love that I can control the amount of fat or number of calories I take in.
But I get the feeling that most people are not like me. How about you? Where does your food come from? Do you cook? Take out? Eat from a box? Why?
