Why didn't I find this forum sooner?
I was actually searching on "google" for a good substitute for hangar steak and stumbled across your forum.
Have been cooking since I could stand on a stool in the kitchen and reach the counter. I have no formal training except "School of Mom" who went to "University of Grandma's Kitchen."
Cooking is my hobby and my passion. The highly educated part would be my 2 master's degrees in the sciences and unable to find a job.
So, I cook. Lucky husband can't boil water but he does the dishes.
