Lately I’ve been cooking a lot. Which is strange because I don’t really like to cook. Don’t get me wrong, I’m actually a pretty good cook, I can even make ravioli from scratch! I’m just not really into it.
These past few weeks though I’ve been downloading recipes online and trying them out. This past weekend I tackled mini quiches for the first time and this weekend I’m attempting to make a pumpkin roll. This looks difficult but if I get it right I will be soo happy!
Baking is what I enjoy doing the most. Which is funny to me because I hate cake and pies. I never eat what I bake but other people tell me they are good. My specialty is crumb cake.
I like baking more because it’s so precise and one wrong move and you could have something completely inedible. But when it comes together you can get a little slice of heaven. With cooking I like how you can improvise. I almost never measure when I’m cooking I just eye everything. My family looks down on measuring, especially when making marinara sauce!
I just like the smell. How it fills the house up and makes it so inviting. It makes a house a home.
Okay I’m going off on a tangent. I seriously don’t know what’s gotten into me.
Do you like to cook? What’s your special dish?
