Country Cooking Only, If You Have The Body For It

Apr 21, 2008
Are you one of those people who think that the good tasting recipes can only be found in expensive restaurants? You would better think again because that probably means that you have never tasted real country cooking which is also called home cooking. Most people who love to eat a home cooked meal or country dinner would say that such a meal is prepared with love and attention. Also these meals would contain a lot of ingredients, often a lot more then a standard dish in an expensive restaurant. Some will have you believe that people who cook country food are them self from the country but that's not always true. But you can almost certainly say that who ever cooks country food in a restaurant has some connection with the country side. Probably the recipe was given to them by friends or passed down in the family to them.

Country food or a home cooked meal will bring people together and there is no restaurant food out there that you can compare with the rich taste and the good quality of some of those meals. But if you have never tasted a nice plate of country food yourself you will just have to take my word for it. Before you start and create your own meal by following a recipe you found or got from a friend maybe you should ask someone who made that recipe before to help you out. The same goes fore recipes found in the internet, ask someone what the end result should taste like.

Be careful, it's not for the faint hearted

Once you have tasted a good country meal you might be tempted to eat such a meal every day of your life and every meal of the day. While this might be tempting it probably isn't such a good idea or a wise thing to do. The cook should be aware of the ingredients that are used for the country meal. Some of the original ingredients in most home cooked meals are known not to be the healthiest. So if you want to stay healthy you should substitute some of the unhealthy ingredients with healthy ones or, if that can't be done with your favorite recipes, just don't eat them that often.

The above is especially true for those people with high blood pressure or other health issues that need to watch their diet closely. Then eating country cooking on a daily basis is not a wise thing to do. If you enjoy eating country food but do have these health issues you should eat it in moderation. Consider what you have through the rest of the day and if that's all in line with your normal diet, keeping the country meal in mind, then you should be able to enjoy a good home cooked meal in the traditional way of preparing it.

Country or home cooked recipes are always very rich, rich in flavors, rich in fatness, rich in taste and very filling. And you will just have to believe me that once you have tasted a good country meal you will never say again that only an expensive restaurant have the good recipes.
