Ive always been a fan of great food. I also love trying out new cuisines. However, Ive so far remained one step short. I dont want to just taste great food any more but cook great food. One of the things Ive put on my list for this year. 21 hours ago

I start to cook more now and so far so good, it tastes not that bad. Lol. 1 week ago
How I did it: First things first: I will never be anything close to professional when it comes to cooking. But the fact is: I live on my own for several years now and last semester I somehow managed to not buy a single ready-made meal or pizza or things similar to this.
I really enjoyed sticking my nose into some cooking books or the internet to try some things I always wanted to try, things that I liked when I lived in England, things that I ate and loved when living in Barcelona.
And on days with not enough time or on German Sundays with all the shops closed I just used whatever I had left in my fridge and made something out of it that I thought might taste nice.
What really helped me to start trying things and what usually helps when you're just too lazy to prepare something just for yourself: Go and cook with your friends! Try stuff! Be creative! Make it fun :-) Read how I did it… 1 week ago
I had some parsley leaves left and I didn’t know what to do with them.. and then there was this simple recipe. I also happend to have homemade chicken broth.. there was no doubts. I started.
100 g of parsley leaves
100 g of butter
1 l of chicken broth
You blend parsley and soft butter and then add few deciliters of boiling broth a blend it a bit more. And finaly mix it together. It has delicious taste and very radioactive green color. :D1 week ago
Why is it everything I make is sweets and thus bad for you? xD
Typically when I leave work (and I don’t close the store) I always ask whoever DOES close if they need anything. Last Saturday I asked and K said “Brownies! Fudge brownies.”
She might have just been saying that… But too late now, hurr-hurr.
So I made brownies. Regrettably out of the box, but still. I like doing stuff for people~ 1 week ago
How I did it: I started buying 4 or 5 basic ingredients and committing to cooking (rather than simply microwaving) at least 1 meal per week. It was slow going at first, and I was only making pasta- not even very good pasta. But as time progressed I began to tackle puddings, meat and fish. These days, I'm not claiming to be any kind of culinary whizz but I do cook for myself every night :)
