Cooking, Anyone?

This post is going to be way off topic. Just a heads up!

And Gertie, I know this is going to be right up your alley so I expect some feedback! Hehe  😉

As you are all well aware, I am moving back out into the real world soon. My last adventure in apartment living was just mediocre. The apartment was in the ghetto and I had horrible neighbors. I worked all the time, my apartment was bare and drab, my cat was constantly destroying something, and the place was always a wreck. This time around, I’m hoping to reform my ways. LOL I don’t have to work to survive like I did previously and that exhausted me so much that I rarely ever cleaned. (Of course, I still need to work but it only has to be part-time. Fingers crossed for a campus job!) So, with a fresh start, I’m hoping to instill some better habits on the home front. I just want an apartment that is comfortable enough to have friends over without worrying about what they think.

Since I’ll be spending more time at home, I also want to venture into the realm of cooking. What’s my cooking motto? If it doesn’t go in to the microwave, I don’t eat it! I am so sick and tired of eating nasty, bland, microwave food. Not to mention, my mid-section isn’t very appreciative of my microwave food habits either. I don’t really know where to start. I do know that I need to do some more shopping for proper kitchen utensils. I thought I might look around for a very basic cookbook for a very beginner cook, you know, something that has all of the basic cooking essentials. Any advice? Any cookbook recommendations?

I hope that everyone is having a great Tuesday! We don’t have much freedom left, so enjoy it while it lasts! 😀

  1. The Healthy College Cookbook : Easy Quick Cheap by Nimetz — is pretty good. It tells you what cooking tools to buy and the recipes are easy, cheap, and quick! (just like the title of the book say lol )

    As far as spices — my basic stash includes garlic salt, pepper, paprika, and montreal steak seasoning. Fun times! Make sure you take pictures of your very first culinary masterpiece 🙂

    • I knew that you’d have a great recommendation! I just flipped through the book on Amazon…looks like a winner! I really like the list of things to buy!

      I didn’t even think about spices! Thanks for the heads up! Silly me. I can assure you that it will be no masterpiece, but I shall try to photograph the adventure! 😀
