One Thing I Can Tell You Is You Got To Be Free

Category: Cooking,My OutfitsEyeliah @ 12:48 pm

To some people cooking a meal is a breeze, for me it is not that simple.  I grew up with a fantastic chef for a mother who even made pasta from scratch and incredibly decorated birthday cakes.  Yes I should have helped in the kitchen and learned more than just the very basics, but truth is I was always more interested in eating food then preparing it.

At this point in my life I am proud to say that I am branching out from just cooking a starch, vegetable and a protein and having them neatly separated on my plate.  My Thursday nights have me measuring, tossing and dancing around the kitchen and chopping faster and faster each week.  For someone who always thought of themselves as a dunce with a stove this is nothing short of a culinary miracle.

Last night I made baked (instead of my usual grilled) salmon with zucchini and tomatoes in a simple lemon olive oil drizzle with onion and minced garlic.

Yum Yum

    Oh, I’m the same! And I admit shamefully that my parents often give me some great balanced meals to get through the week because they know I’d just eat noodles otherwise. I’m that bad in the kitchen D:. Although I did find I can make salmon… mainly because I like it really raw XD.

    Your food and you look great!
