    Keys to Good Cooking

    It’s been a while since I posted a book review. It’s not because I haven’t come across great reads. On the contrary, I’ve come across more than enough good books to post on here. Most of my time has been spent in the kitchen baking and trying out new recipes. Yesterday we tried making pizza. Let me tell you, it was a long process and this was without making the sauce from scratch. It wasn’t the best tasting pizza but not the worst either which is why I won’t post any recipe for it.

    How to use a French press

    Finally got my hands on one of these beauties. Now, I was contemplating a cappuccino machine but currently don’t have the space. So why not get the French Press? It’s perfect for small spaces and a quick caffeine boost. Oh and the coffee comes out delish!

    Pepper Penne

It may be because of the, what seems to be a never-ending, winter. I even blogged about the negative impact winter can have on people; it’s not a good feeling. But what better way to get over this than experimenting with new foods and dishes? I call this dish Pepper Penne. I didn’t know how delicious this dish could be. When my mom made it, I couldn’t resist trying to make it myself. It came out very delicious and I had a great…

    Highlights of My Life

    I was browsing through some images and found some of my favorites. These pictures describe my life at this moment. The image above is a great salad I bought from Trader Joe’s; it’s very tasty! Below you can see some of the groceries I bought and Maggie in the kitchen. Lately, I’ve been showing her how to cook! Yeah you read right. And she loves it. Last night I turned on some melodies (Yann Tiersen to be specific) and sat her down on the counter. She helps me with the beginning process of cooking. After that, the cooking gets intense and her job is over. On another note, I’ve been trying…
