“Give a man food and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to cook and he’ll eat for the rest of his life.”
…No? That’s not how it goes? Ah well. Moving on.
Cooking, I’ve heard, is cheaper than buying frozen meals and eating out, and healthier depending on what you’re making. Yes, you can go buy a burger and fries at McDonald’s for cheap, but that’s not exactly healthy. Yes, you can go buy salmon and a salad at Whole Foods, but look at that price! For one meal!
So, I turn to one of the basic life skills needed (well, maybe not, if you can afford to eat out all the time) to live the adult life: cooking.
It’s simple at times, difficult at others. You don’t necessarily have to be the next Emeril (unless you want to); you just have to know how to make something delicious that you like.
For me, I have started the Paleo Diet since living on my own, so my options are kind of limited. To add to that, I don’t exactly make that much money. So, what do I do?
“Cooking Experiments” will list all the improvised recipes that I’ve tried, the triumphant successes and the dramatic failures. All of them will be derived from other recipes, either from the Internet or from family. Links to original recipes will be listed with my improvised ones.
These experiments will pretty much show you what does or doesn’t work when it comes to improvised cooking, and little snippets of stories will be included with them.
