Over the Christmas break I decided that I want to spend this next semester learning how to cook... how to really cook. I spent the break collecting recipes and talking to different sources, getting time-old tips and tricks. I have become quite fond of Ina Garten and her Barefoot Contessa line of cookbooks, one of which I got for Christmas. I also got a little French cooking journal by Julia Child and a new red apron!
As I write out my goals for the upcoming semester, one of them is going to be to try at least one new recipe a week. This morning I made a beef & vegetable stew in the crock pot for the first time so you can be expecting a post about that soon. Also, feel free to pass along any fool proof recipes as I have quite a few weeks to fill!
