Cooking is a commonsense practice, not alchemy. Listening and watching closely while you cook will reveal a richly shaded language understood by all the senses - the degrees of a simmer, the aroma of a roast telling you it is done, the stages of elasticity of kneaded dough, the earthy scent of a vegetable just pulled from the ground - it is everything to mind these details. This is cooking. ~ Chez Panisse Cookbook

This is a simple salad I made using leftover steak. I had almost all the ingredients ready, which made it super easy. I heated the steak, cut cucumbers, tomatoes, and herbs, and tossed it with a simple vinaigrette. Easy and delicious!
