Since leaving for college, I've enjoyed becoming familiar with new types of foods. My husband's family served several American classics that I hadn't eaten much growing up, and in southern California, we got to know international cuisines, like Indian and Thai. I used to follow recipes as exactly as possible, but then I started making substitutions for medical dietary restrictions, and now I'm even creating my own recipes.
