Someway or another, the question, “Can you cook” always pops up in conversations; whether the convo be with men or women. My feminist side automatically wants to scream “Can you build a house” when men ask and when women ask, I say, “Can you?” Regardless, food has always been my first love. So cooking should come hand in hand with eating right?
I’m not gonna boast that I can make a 10 course meal like my Mother does routinely every Thanksgiving holiday because I can’t. And I’m not gonna tell you I can make you pass out from excitement at the thought of Banana Bread Pudding like my Great Grandmother can. But, I will tell you that I can successfully cook a meal without burning a house down. I’m just joking, people. I can cook! And I’ve decided to add the Food page to my blog to commemorate my love for eating, savoring, and not as much affection towards cooking. After all, what’s the point of taking pictures of my meals if I don’t share them?
Spaghetti is one of the simplest recipes that a person cam make without screwing it up. All you do is boil water (sprinkle some salt to get the water to boil quicker), break the past in half and drop it in the pan, and let it cook until the noodles are soft. When I was living Brooklyn, spaghetti was my go to meal. Not only is it easy to make, but it’s cheap as well. I believe one box was only a couple of bucks, if that! And one box can last you for a long time, even for people with big appetites such as myself. If you get tired of the same pasta and sauce, change it up with a new style of pasta or a new sauce like Vodka sauce! The meat balls shown in this photo were made by my Mom. They’re actually left overs from the SuperBowl Party our family attended earlier this week. She bought a frozen bag of pre-made meat balls and cooked them in a crock pot with pasta sauce. They’re really tasty! For any of you who are scared about cooking for yourself, let me be the first one to tell you…It really isn’t hard at all!
