Confessions of a Picky Eater

Where's Superstarr?

I am here!

I'm still cooking, though lately the mood has been on and off, so many dinners have consisted of frozen pizza, grilled cheese, or scrambled eggs.  In between my cooking lulls, I've managed to put together a few delicious, noteworthy (or at least photo-worthy) meals.

Here in Seattle, we have just survived a gigantic snowstorm...well, gigantic for us, that is.  I seriously missed 3 days of work and I live one mile away from the office atop a steep, slippery hill.  The idea of sliding around on a glare of ice didn't appeal to me, so I stayed home.

You'd think that three days inside would result in numerous cooking adventures and experiments, but sadly, it did not.  I managed one batch of cookies, a grilled cheese sandwich, some home fried potatoes and eggs, and a frozen pizza.  Sad, really. 

However I just ventured out on clear sidewalks to the nearby food co-op and came home with a filet mignon for dinner tonight, some ground beef, and a half turkey breast that will be brined and roasted tomorrow.  Since it weighs less than 3 pounds, brining overnight would be too much, so I'll tackle that in the morning.

Since it's not spring yet, I look forward to cooking many more comfort food dishes....

About Me
I'm a picky eater who likes to sometimes try new things, if that makes sense. Life isn't only about cooking, however, as I enjoy spending time with my Chihuahua, reading, movies, decorating my condo, lots of t.v. shows, etc.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite go-to meal is home fried potatoes and tofu with tons of veggies and fresh herbs. I also love fresh juice, especially kale, parsley, and green apples.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my mom cooked pretty much traditional American Midwest food....burgers, spaghetti & meatballs, things like that. but everything she made was delicious! family gatherings and holidays were always filled with tons of homemade food - no boxed mashed potatoes in my house!
My cooking triumphs
see blog entry "The Chicken Incident" also, any time I can make something without measuring - when it's totally by instinct, I consider that a success.
My cooking tragedies
I don't know.....anything overcooked or too dry....basically when I've had any cooking tragedy in the past, it was because I wasn't really into cooking at that moment! you've really got to cook with love or it won't turn out!
