I am on my way to becoming a brilliant cook! At the moment this version of myself lives only in my mind but that’s the first step! My food related goals for the year include

learn how to cook beautiful meals

master a peach pie

host dinner parties

and feed the ones I love.

I have always envied people who weren’t afraid of the kitchen and could whip up a meal. Spending the afternoon cooking sounds so relaxing and lovely. So I am going to stop replaying the “I’m a bad cook” story in my head and create a new and improved version of myself. Also, considering I am 355 days away from turning 30 I think it’s about time I stepped foot in the kitchen. I have avoided it too long. I can’t eat dinner at whole foods the rest of my life! Not to mention I think Brian is getting a tad tired of being the one who prepares our meals while I sip wine and watch.

How am I going to learn to cook you may ask? I have decided to enlist the help of my family and friends. So if any of YOU have a famous dish you make and would like to teach me how to prepare it, I would be delighted to learn!
