I'm back! I took some time during the holidays to enjoy the fun of family, seasonal baking and all the fun things during Thanksgiving and Christmas. For fun at work, my coworker and I played Santa Claus every night work. We made some cute, edible food for every night of the week. It was… MORE

Hello! Yes it has been awhile! I find breakfast is somewhat of a challenge in itself. I recently (7 months ago recently) started working the 3rd shift (11p-7a), and so breakfast isn't something I always think about when I awake. I've become quite dependent on my coffee which in turn… MORE

I must say, I write this entry today with elation! I successfully cooked Julia's Scrambled Egg! Yes, that's right,  I did it! It tasted fantastic! This time, I used my cast iron skillet, which I think keeps a better heat. I also turned up the heat slightly from last time. This time I used a… MORE

So, I have yet to attempt another egg. Today, I really should...but not sure, it was such a failed attempt. I wanted to write today about some of the amazing food that I have been making lately. So even though I haven't really gotten started on "classically" training myself, I consider myself… MORE

So, I've decided to take upon myself a cooking challenge. You've learned from the previous entry that the first challenge is the egg. My first task in this challenge is to learn to make a great scrambled egg. For this I found two different methods by Julia Childs and Jacques Pepin. Today I… MORE

Well, I've taken the idea from the movie "Julie & Julia" and have decided to take on a cooking challenge. At first my thought was to cook my way through an entire cookbook. But then I decided rather to setup my own bucket list of challenges. I plant to incorporate a couple of cookbooks that… MORE

About Me
I am 28 years old, from Minnesota. I currently work as an x-ray tech. I recently purchased my first house and am getting to enjoy my own garden, learning some home improvements, and now have decided to teach myself to become a better cook.
My favorite things to cook
Within my limited scope of cooking, my favorite things are soups because I feel a sense of creativity and confidence with them. I tend to be a "physicist" type cook and am hoping through my cooking journey I learn to use a recipe as a general guide.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I currently have been cooking food every NFL Sunday and whatever team the Vikings (MN) play, I cook a meal inspired by that opposing city or state. This has really challenged my cooking over the last two years. I also love coming up with a good dessert for Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
My latest triumphs have been learning to master the egg (which details can be found in my blog), a great beef brisket, best chili ever, and creating this upcoming cooking challenge for myself. (More about this on my blog).
My cooking tragedies
My 1st two attempts at homemade Pizza from scratch were a bit dismal. They both tasted great, but too much dough and the whole procedure and using a pizza stone where a bit messy work. I really need to refine this. And my first attempt at Julia Child's scrambled egg was embarrassingly terrible.
