First post: an introduction

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
-Healthy ingredients
-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):

I hope that gives a satisfactory introduction to my kitchen life.  I suspect that I'll reveal a lot more along the way...

  1. Two blogs? Can you keep them up? And school? And social life? And work? And water polo, basketball, and running? And sleep?

    You are crazy!


Did this recipe work for you? Tips, suggestions, or advice?
