"It tastes amazing! This is easy to make and lends itself to tinkering. I used reduced fat may & sour cream, and less of the bacon fat and it still came out tasting fantastic. It's got dairy so it's not friendly to those with lactose intolerance, but that's the only food issue I encountered with it.
I love cooking. I like all foods--but they have to be prepared well. I tend toward the lighter side of things to keep my weight down, and I'll use any recipe and switch out heavier, higher calorie items for lower calorie items that have just as much flavor.
I learned to cook from a good friend who learned from his Italian grandmother. I've gotten away from measuring things strictly as most recipes call for, but when I've never tasted something on my own, then I'll stick closely. Otherwise, since I know there are some flavors I like to be stronger than typical, or less potent, I'll adjust according to my own tastes.
