Timothy Ferriss (4 hour work week, 4 hour body, 4 hour chef) is teaching us how to cook. His beef is that all cookbooks are organized by genre, not by ascending cooking skills. So we have loved doing the recipes and learning the techniques. I feel like it's possible for me to make yummy food. We've repeated some great recipes and added to our repertoire. Recipe and success #1 was Osso Buko - braised lamb with tomatoes and carrots. Very delicious. Very simple. And crockpottable which is definite bonus points in my book.
