“On read, I’m a former high school teacher. I’ve been writing for a bit now, but I really wanted to have a blog, too. I thought I’d share a few of my recipes with you, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
As a former high school teacher, Im a bit of a foodie. I love to cook, but Im not the only one either. I have found that most of the food I eat is pretty healthy, and I think it has a lot to do with how I learned to cook. I think the reason high-school kids eat more junk food than anyone else is because it’s more fun.
For a while it seemed like all the popular school foods were filled with sugar and junk food. Then it hit me, it was because I was the only one eating this way. I also have a bit more knowledge of what goes through my food than most because Ive been doing this for a bit.
I think I was introduced to cooking in high school because my mom bought me a copy of Betty Crocker’s cookbook when I was a little kid. I also think most people are introduced to cooking through the convenience of buying take-out. I’m not saying buying take-out is bad, but I think it would be a lot more fun to have a cookbook to share with friends or family members than it would be to have a take-out dinner.
In a way, its not that I don’t have a great cookbook, its just that I’ve never seen one before. I think I’ll need a cookbook for my birthday in a few months.
I think Betty Crocker would be one of the few cookbooks that you would actually want to have lying around the house. She doesn’t have her own recipes, instead she has a collection of recipes from her family’s cooking traditions. I think its pretty cool.
Its not a cookbook, its a cookbook recipe book. You cook and cook and cook and cook and then you give it to your friends and they cook and cook and cook and cook and then they give it to their friends and so on, until youve got some kind of cookbook that you dont even use anymore. You should think of yourself as a steward of your recipes, and having them in a cookbook is like having a stash of candy in your pantry.
My mom used to tell me that what I needed to know about cooking was not the recipes, but the way I could figure out what they were doing. I think she was right about this. I think a lot of people make this mistake, but if you look back, cooking is really just like learning how to play a musical instrument. You know what to do, you know how the music is going to be, you know how to read the notes correctly, and so on.
This is a good example of the type of knowledge that you can have without actually learning the skills. If you have a stash of candy in your pantry, you can look at what it contains and figure out how to take it apart and how to put it to good use.
