Frittata Discovery

I learned how to make some fancy eggs! Honestly, this thing just looks like a giant baked version of my scrambled eggs, but hey, it’s a new skill, right? If this blog were a video game, I’m sure I’d have just unlocked some sort of achievement.

Confusion Sets In

I’m generally not just a bad cook, but also a lazy one. I suppose there could be a direct correlation between the two, but I’ll not dwell on that right now.

I love home-made meals, but it’s gotten to the point that I genuinely look forward to visiting my Mom because (I love her a lot and) it means I get really good food. Recently I’ve been wishing more and more that I could cook like her. The combination of trying to eat low-carb and not really knowing how to spruce up some chicken or beef is making the endeavor monotonous and uninspiring, and I’m not getting anywhere by not practicing. Plus, I’ve heard that good cooks are creative, so maybe this will be right up my alley. I have to get creative anyway since I probably only have about half of the stuff some the recipes I’m reading call for…

So without further ado, welcome to my world of confusion that is my kitchen. It’s about to get messy up in here.
