That cooking post sure generated a lot more talk than most of my other posts. Maybe I should clarify that I’ve come a lonnnnnggggg way since college, people! (That’s mainly for Jason.) I rarely make people sick with my cooking (just don’t talk to Kenny about last week’s dinner that I made) and I often use family recipes that my mom gave me, and the many cookbooks I received for college graduation.
My friend JoDee joked with me after she graduated from MHC that I should expect a ton of journals for graduation gifts. She graduated a year before me. I didn’t get a single journal, but I did get a lot of cookbooks – and it continued that Christmas after graduation. In fact, I received two copies of the same cookbook at Christmas (exchanged one for a different cookbook.) I even have a copy of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Cooking”….not that I think I’m a complete idiot.
I’m proud to say that I use my food processor for more than Thanksgiving and Christmas cranberry relish – I use it for pesto in the summer. And sometimes my blender is used for more than daquiris – but not often. The mixer was used within a year of our wedding, and I’ve used it for more than just banana bread.
On that note, I may just have to blog more about my cooking adventures. And I might just ask you to share recipes and tips. They do come in handy.
And, Jason? You really pay attention to Rachel Ray? I’m impressed.
