I can cook, but can’t say I’ve ever experienced the ‘joy of cooking’. I accepted years ago that cooking just isn’t my thing. I, though, really appreciate good food and the creativity involved in preparing a delectable meal. Thankfully, Fred (my husband), loves to cook and is so….good at it. Among his hits is Sticky Lemon Chicken, a mouthwatering Gordon Ramsey creation.
