Overcoming Cooking Fears (with Extreme Simplicity)

Extreme Simplicity basically stems from the fact that when you start with fresh, seasonal, organic ingredients, you really don’t need to do much to make them taste good. A little salt, a little olive oil, and shazam! You’ve got yummiful food. When I cook now, I try to get to the essence of a recipe and cut out all the complicated steps and unnecessary flavors…especially the bitter and toxic taste of pretension.

How to Make an Apple Cider Float

I know it works because my family devours my food. (In fact, my teenage daughter told me it’s what she would miss most about me if I died—high praise indeed.) For her sake, I’ve started writing down my recipes so that even after I’m gone, she and her children can share the pleasure of my extreme simplicity. You can find the recipes I’m in favor of on my blog and at the Rodale Recipe Finder (just type “Maria’s farm country kitchen” in the search bar).

I still have a few fears—eating organ meats, for instance. But, truthfully, not every fear in life needs to be overcome. What makes me happiest is that my family and I love sharing good food together. And that’s extremely simple.

Glad to see they're addressing the problem of the adult bullying problem.

Nothing like receiving a big, wide smile to warm the heart. Then, give one back!
