Electric Skillet Stewed Chicken

Cooking is one of my favorite things to do. Do I enjoy it? Well, sometimes. But I realize that if I want to be an amazing cook, I have to do things so differently, and step up my game. But I really don’t have time for that because for me to master the art of cooking takes time, and I really don’t want to spend my time in the kitchen. So I find myself being what I call, a “simple cook”. One who just prepares meals in a simple way. Being single for a long time my meals have been on the individualistic side. There is one day in the week that I spend more time in the kitchen and that is on Sunday. Growing up in the home with my grandmothers and my mother, Sundays were a day when large meals for our large family was prepared and served.  I have carried on this tradition during my adult life. To tell you the truth, I look forward to doing that, it gives me a sense of connecting with my grandmothers and mother.  I will share some of my dishes with you in this post.
