Friday morning I woke up happy and realized that the next day was November 3rd. This was a very important day. Why you ask? Oh, only because I got free tickets to The Really Big Cooking Show. What’s The Really Big Cooking Show you ask? Oh, only the the coolest thing I could have done on November 3rd.
Next, the lovely ladies (and sisters) at Favorite Family Recipes. I LOVE this blog, AND I have their cookbook. Their most visited recipes are their restaurant copycats. (which are bomb) They gave some good tips on figuring out a restaurants recipe. And I bought what I need to make their Nothing Bundt Cake copycat recipe.
Third was Valerie Phillips, who is the author of a soup cookbook called Soup’s On. I felt bad, her quick and easy soup demo didn’t end well, the burners didn’t work and her soup didn’t get hot! I’m not sure I’ll really use her recipes. (at least the ones she showed) They both had a whole block of cream cheese in it!
And last was The Food Nanny from BYUTV, Liz Edmunds! She was so great! She talked about her plan, which is actually pretty awesome.
So it’s a plan, but not strict. She explained that the hardest part of cooking dinner is coming up with what to cook! I find that to be SO true. I actually enjoy cooking, but when I get home from work and haven’t thought about what to eat, I get discouraged and just want to eat cold cereal. When you have a “genre” of food to choose from, it is automatically easier to decide. AND another thing she does, which I want to start doing. You plan meals for two weeks, and go shopping for those two weeks. You’ll have everything you’ll need, nothing goes bad and you have your meals planned!
I feel inspired and am excited to try some new things! Happy cooking!
