I can’t tell you often I hear the words “I can’t cook” and Im pretty certain my face goes into a zombie stare. I mean seriously, in a world full of boxes and mixes, there’s actually someone who can’t cook? (Where were ya’lls mommas? And, why weren’t you in the kitchen with her?) Granted, thise will never be as good as real meals made from scratch but the skill level is literally, read the instruction and follow them.
Attitude is everything! Cooking may seem daunting to the first time cook. This is more likely due to a lack of confidence and fear of failure. Cooking should be approached like your personal art project. If the project doesn’t turn out how you wanted, who cares? Cut yourself some slack! But maybe, you’ll discover it’s easier than you think. Here’s a couple examples, Creme Brulee: fancy dessert served in high end restaurants and Baklava. Stupid simple! I’m a kitchen wizard and even I was skeptical of pulling these off then amazed at the ease!
Instead of cannonballing into the deep end of the pool, wade in slowly. Try something simple. Once you master the simple things, ad-venture into cooking completely homemade. Don’t fear tweeking recipes and flavors. Make whatever you’re cooking, your own and above all….have fun! (If you have kids, please!!! Invite them into the kitchen with you! Insist on it! They’ll thank you later.💗)
Here’s a super simple non-homemade, home cooked recipe even my dog can make.
1 can Grands biscuits
1 can of pie filling or jam
2 Tbsp melted butter
preheat oven indicated on biscuits
light flour counter surface
roll each biscuit to a large thin round
top with a dollop of filling or jam. fold biscuit over and press edges with a fork to seal. use fork to puncture the top to allow syream to escape. Place on baking sheet. Brush with melted butter, Bake as per biscuit instructions. Remove from oven and dust with powdered sugar. Ta-Da!
Pour a glass of milk and enjoy!
*Don’t be afraid to get adventurous! experiment with fillings! Try sausage and scrambled eggs, chocolate chips and peanut butter or maybe leftover beef and cheese.
