Do you ever go through a cooking rut? It's not just not knowing what to cook, but I seem to have lost my touch and nothing turns out quite right. I seem to overcook or get the seasoning wrong half the time. I guess this indicates something about my inner life lately (overwhelmed), but I'd really like to recover my ability to make a simple and satisfying meal. So... what I'm looking for are suggestions for easy to get right dishes. I'm still on point with roasting a whole chicken, but I live alone so that doesn't happen often. I'm great with putting together unusual salads and that's always satisfying, but I'm longing to feel some mastery over the science of cooking.
