PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG
I know from personal experience that cooking can be overwhelming when you’re just getting started. Many recipes have confusing terms and ingredients you’ve probably never heard of. I understand why cooking frustrates a lot of people because I, too, used to feel like I was missing out on some secret, magical power. That is why it was so important for me to create this blog. I want people to realize that success in the kitchen is possible with the right instruction and the right recipes. And a simple process can yield sophisticated results.
MY COOKING JOURNEY
The first 18 years of my life I was spoiled with a mother who made delicious, home-cooked meals every single night. I never had to worry about learning how to do even the simplest of cooking tasks like boiling pasta or steaming vegetables.
But then my “food life” was turned upside down when I left home to attend Indiana University. Without any cooking knowledge, I had to fend for myself in the food court of my dormitory. "Freshman 15 pounds" later I decided it was time for me to start cooking for myself so I could have more control over what I was consuming.
After a few disastrous dishes and months of trial and error (and more trial and error and MORE trial and error), I began to get the hang of this whole cooking thing.
Throughout the course of my cooking journey, my view the kitchen morphed from a stressful environment to a place of relaxation and creativity. I am happy to say I am at a point in my life where I can be proud of my cooking.
