So for the last six months, since Ive moved to Utah and been at home all day, Ive found a new love in my life; making food!
Ive always liked to cook, back home whenever I would have time after I got home from work Id plan an awesome meal. I also liked feeding my guest and inviting people over for dinner. I don’t know why but it brings me so much joy to see people eat the food I make and even more joy when they like it!
So the past few months I’ve been looking up recipes for things that aren’t technically meals, like finger foods or confront foods. For example; Ive learned to make crepes and empanadas (the savory kind). These two are my work in progress right now. I think Ive been doing an ok job, I do think I could still make them better as long as I keep practicing and making them. =)
ALSO, Ive tried to make Bad twice, and Its not perfect but like the empanadas and the crepes I think its pretty good for a newb. ;P
Ive also been trying to bake things, this is actually my current work in progress, Because I think I got the crepes and empanadas dough game pretty much down, I really need to focus on my baking skills. Baking is for sure not my strong suit. Ive tried to make banana bread like 4 times and I fail, granted I try to make my won recipe because Im try to make them an easy way, but I still haven’t found it.
Its been really great being able to stay home and plan what I’m going to cook. I could be in the kitchen all day making and experimenting. I kind of wish I would have gone to a chefs school instead of majoring in psychology 😆. Its ok, its never too late I guess, also Im not sure if I have the chef vibe, I think I’m more of a mom/grandma vibe. 👵🏼
