Cooking Inspiration from Mark Bittman

I get a lot of inspiration for cooking from Mark Bittman.  He’s created recipes for the NY Times for years.


Bittman encourages creative cooking with a minimal list of ingredients.  He puts in dollops and dashes and doesn’t agonize about every painstakingly measured item.  Because he doesn’t seem to measure!  That’s how our grandmas cooked.

I also like Bittman’s philosophy about meat.  He doesn’t try to get the whole world to be vegetarian.  Just to eat less meat.  It’s better for the health of your family and for the health of the planet.  After all, all those cows farting greatly contributes to global warming!
