Past fail

I’m going to relive a painful memory with you.  Ok, it’s more hilarious than painful.

One day I was blissfully making dinner, and decided that baked potatoes were in order.  Harmless, right?  Not when I’m in the kitchen.

I scrubbed the potatoes and put them in the oven to bake themselves into deliciousness when there was a loud bang that came from the oven.  And this is what I found..

Moral of the story: poke holes in your potatoes or they will explode and leave potato shrapnel everywhere.

A not-so-good cook

So here I am, a not-so-good cook, trying to become a good one.

I love shortcuts.  I’ll reach for that box of Kraft Mac and Cheese before I make a roux, and store-bought pesto beckons before the pine nuts and spinach do.  Eh, what can you do.

As much as I love shortcuts, I hate cleaning.  I’ve been known to let a dirty pot linger for a few days because I just don’t want to deal with it.  So you know those recipes that require 20 different bowls?  I skip those.  And you know how they tell you to sift and mix all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl?  Nope.  Mixing separately is overrated.

I’m a meat eater, and I buy non-organic.

Welcome to my kitchen.
