...but if you want to be good at it you have to do a lot of it. You can know all the rules but then you realise it's as much of an art as it is science. Whether that's how it should be or if that'll change at some point is up for discussion but that's how it is at the moment.
Made tacos to take to work for the next couple days. Chicken breast in supposedly adobo marinade, cilantro lime rice, fresh pico. Making tortillas tonight. The marinade turned out too sour/sweet IMO, not sure if it was the orange or lime juice or the fact that I cooked it with too much marinade on it.

I wish this every day. Many of the designers and cuts I used to wear look stupid now. Disproportionate.
The same can be said for upper body. Don't really like the look of a wide chest and shoulders and bulging triceps in normal clothes.
upper body a lot easier to deal with with looser clothing though, whereas skinny straight legs are required for the proper look of the majority of EU/Asian brands. Speaking of which what are your guys' waist/thigh measurements? I can't really complain cuz I'm like at the edge of having to abandon skinny pants but can still fit into some even if they look stupid. 34" waist/23.5" thighs.
I'd say 90%+ of my leg volume comes from squats and deads. Imo squats to at least parallell depth and where you actually use the legs to squat the weight up (not the back) are the single most effective lift for building big legs. Then you can of course play around with stance width, foot and knee positioning to put more or less emphasis on quads or hips.
That's good for you (serious).
Perhaps its because of your squatting style, volume or just genetics. Long term you might be limiting your squat by not putting on size though.
My quad development really kicked off when I increased to high frequency. Roughly half of the sessions are deep olympic squats and in some cycles I've done a lot of blood flow restricted high rep squats. Those are horrible but very effective ime.
