"Yes, I would read your blog"They say the best way to make friends in college is to cook for them without poisoning them any more than the dining hall does--looks like I've got it in the bag. After countless meals taken from my home in ziplock bags, I guess I'll share my culinary experimentation.
"Alessandra, please feed me"
Most of the recipes on here are loosly based on some other recipe I found, tested, tweaked, and wrote down in a dirty old notebook (half of which is full of calculus homework). I can't afford to spend lots of money on each meal, so I try to stick with a couple staples that I can base everything else off of. Some dishes require some specialty ingredient, but even then, it'll only take a trip to the grocery store, not the underground Indian market. And I am a firm believer in substitutions while cooking. Half the fun is making it up as you go because you don't have time to run to the store.
I just want people to stop thinking cooking is hard. It's not. It's even fun. You can be the baddest mother fucker in the world, and I swear you'll have a dish you love to cook. I guarantee it.
