As this blog's title suggests, I am a college student who procrastinates doing homework and other productive miscellany by cooking and baking. Up until now, I've been posting recipes on my personal blog, but I decided to give the fam a break and separate food from the rest of my life. I love to cook, and so I figured I'd have enough material for a food blog! The only thing I'm missing is a nice camera... So, sorry if the pictures here are a bit fuzzy. Maybe I'll save up from the ads and, if there is enough traffic by my humble little blog, I'll earn a camera? Here's dreaming!
The people reading this blog right now are probably the people who already know my cooking habits and likes and dislikes. However, I will make this post an introduction of those exciting facts.
I like to cook with:
-Veggies of all types
-EVERYTHING! I'm even learning to like seafood, although you probably won't see a lot of seafood on this blog, as I am on a college budget...
My favorite kitchen equipment includes:
-My immersion blender
-My silicone spatulas
-Mom's food processor (when I'm at home)
-A large selection of medium-sized knives that I use for just about everything
Silly things I do in the kitchen:
-As I cook, I nest my measuring cups inside of each other next to the sink. I reuse them as much as I can without contaminating ingredients.
-Snitch and sample like crazy. It has made my mom wild for years.
-Leave cupboard doors open and smack my head
-Put my laptop (with the recipe) on top of the dish rack so I can read it while I cook
Favorite cooking websites (this list grows all the time):
20somethingcupcakes, Annie's Eats, Big girls, small kitchen, Cheeky Kitchen, Confections of a Foodie Bride, What's cookin, Chicago?, Joy the Baker, Shutterbean, SMITTEN KITCHEN, Sugarplum, Pioneer Woman, The Wednesday Chef
I hope that gives a satisfactory introduction to my kitchen life. I suspect that I'll reveal a lot more along the way...
