Welcome to my new food blog! I’m very excited to get started sharing my love for food and cooking with the rest of the world. Here are a few things you can expect from my posts:
1. Cooking for One: I cook for myself most days of the week. Yes, cooking for one requires critical thinking and creativity, but it can totally be done. I don’t agree that “cooking for one is hard to do” because I do it all the time. I do believe that grocery stores and recipes are not inherently conducive to single cooking, but I refuse to let that dictate how I approach food. So I’ll share how I manage cooking for little ol’ me so you can do the same.
2. Cooking for The Gang: I LOVE to entertain and cook for others. I get it from my dad…he and I would both feed the world if we could find a big enough table – to steal a phrase from my wicked step-mother. (She’s not really wicked at all.) It makes me happy to have folks over to my apartment to try a new recipe or participate in a potluck. I don’t think I’ve ever had a social gathering that didn’t involve food in some form or fashion. So I’ll talk about my go-to entertaining recipes as well as my forays into new recipes. I’m lucky my friends are so willing to serve as my guinea pigs.
3. Healthy Cooking: I’ve recently been reading about the food industry lately. The food industry is NOT our friend. Nearly every food out there is built on sugar, fat, and salt – usually in ridiculously high quantities. So I’m interested in exploring how I can reduce the content of one or more of those building blocks and still producing really good food.
4. General Tips: I’ll share tips to cut corners, make things easier, what gadgets or spices I like, and anything else I think of that someone might benefit from knowing.
It’s going to be a grand adventure so I hope you’ll join me for the ride! Let’s go!
