Your Take: Your Favorite Meal

As I mentioned last week, my lovely wife and I have started cooking more because it’s fun, healthier, and easier on the wallet. We’ve documented some of our creations on Bargaineering, from pork and shrimp dumplings [3] to pizza [4] to to homemade apple pie [5]. We’ve even gone super high class and cooked up a Provençal rack of lamb [6] earlier this year.

How do we pick what we want to cook? It’s a mixture of what’s on sale that week at our local grocery store and the meals we absolutely love. We both loved dumplings so we thought it would be fun to make our own filling and “make” dumplings. My wife always had homemade apple pie on the first day of school and so I made her a pie when she started her new graduate program.

In the end, part of the fun is taking a recipe, adding your own touches and tailoring it to match your tastes. Each time you make it, you get closer and closer to the perfect dish. We’ve tried our hand at replicating dishes from our favorite restaurants, sometimes we get it right and sometimes we are very very off. Either way, it’s been a fun challenge. 🙂

For today’s Your Take, I wanted to learn what your favorite meals or dishes were. We’ve shared some of ours and shown how easy many of them are to make, I was hoping you all could share your favorites. It doesn’t have to be fancy or anything like that, in fact I would prefer if it wasn’t so we could make it easily and often, but it has to be something you absolutely love. It can be a homemade dish or one you order from a restaurant – whatever is the first and favorite in your mind. 🙂

I look forward to reading what your favorite meal is!
