Seriously, y’all, I have a problem. A cooking problem. Okay, so it’s not a big problem and everything is mostly fine and I’m probably making a big deal out of nothing. But nonetheless, I am in a cooking rut, and it is a problem.
I love to cook. I’m really good at pastas…
…and particularly at mac and cheese.
I like learning how to make new things.
And I love to bake.
Lately, though, I feel like all we’ve been cooking are pasta dishes and roasted veggies with some kind of protein and rice. Like, sure, I’m feeding us. But I’m just feeling totally, completely uninspired. It’s boring and monotonous and I don’t like it.
Which brings me back to the beginning of this post. You can help, and I’d love it if you would! How?
Send me your favorite recipes! (Bonus points for your favorite cozy, fall recipes!)
One of my favorite things about food is that it’s sort of a universal language. The ingredients and techniques might be different, but at the end of the day, we all gotta eat, right? (And I really like to eat.) And you can always tell when a dish has been made with care and love, and when the cook just really wants you to feel good and be happy.
So, share your favorites with me, and I’ll do the same! Over the course of this fall, I’ll post some of my all-time best, most complimented, or just go-to recipes. And we’ll cook. And it will be fun!
(And also, September’s short story will be up on Friday, so be sure to check back. It’s going to be a good one!)
