I’m a recently graduated transplant to Seattle. I just experienced my first Seattle rain (cold) and getting used to the days without sun (it is that grey).
My mom never taught me how to cook. She attempted to before I started college but I was never interested to learn. So nothing stuck. I started cooking in junior year of college when I moved off campus. Then it was a series of fried rice, simple stir fry, fried rice, spaghetti, fried rice, ramen noodle etc. You get the picture.
Since I graduated and have to be responsible with my own spending I found out an age old knowledge. Eating out is expensive. But eating fried rice every 3 days is probably not a long term plan nutrition wise. I decided to be a better cook through lots of trial and error (learn to cut, mince and cutting my finger and various kitchen shenanigans), book (Essentials of cooking by James Patterson) and online recipes.
One problem with online recipes is that, there are so many of them out there. Similar yet different. I frequently find myself bookmarking multiple links of things I want to cook. So this blog comes out of that. Instead of the ever difficult and un-scalable task of organizing my bookmarks, I’m putting it in a blog. It has the advantage of allowing me to jot down notes as well. 😉
