I am going to call these posts as titled, because for those who know me, know that I can’t cook to save my life. I am therefore grateful for a husband to who is culinarily able. I am sure, culinarily, is not a word.
This is something I would like to improve because I am a mom and because three girls need to learn to cook from someone. I did not include this on my expectations list, ba-cause. So, in an effort to improve my culinary (lack of) skills, I am going to share my attempts, good and bad, at “new” food that I would not normally know what or how to cook.
This week, I finally decided to try a one of Bon Appetit Magazine’s recipe, instead of just drooling over their food porn. Don’t get too excited, it’s just a pancake recipe. I gotta start slow 🙂
I also attempted some random recipe I found online with nutella.
Food 1: Peach Dutch Baby Pancake with Strawberry Compote
You can find the recipe here.
The BonApp recipe called for a cherry compote, but I like strawberries better. It turned out pretty good, and the girls ate it, too 🙂
It was a tad bit under cooked in the middle, so it tasted a bit like a crepe in the middle, but with the peach and the strawberry distracting my taste buds, it didn’t matter, it was really good. So, I consider this one a success.
Food 2: Nutella Cake Chewy Bars
I was itching to make something with the untouched Nutella jar in the pantry, and I tripped up on this recipe.
I did not change anything and followed this one to the tee,well minus the chocolate sprinkles. I thought it was under cooked as well, but it is supposed to be chewy and so I guess it was just right. This one was a hit with the whole family and they devoured it, I got pictures, well of Aspen, up there devouring them 🙂
You should try these because these are the easiest recipes that I have ever tried to make and if you mess them up, they might still taste really good! 🙂
I hope to make a series out of these posts, and hopefully, improve in the kitchen 🙂
