What is the first meal you ever cooked?
This is a tough one! I’ve been cooking since I was 7. I can’t remember the first thing I cooked, but I can remember the first thing that impressed my mom. I must have been 10 or 11 and I breaded some whiting in an egg wash, flour, and bread crumbs. I come from pretty meager beginnings, but I remember going to the dollar store and spending my allowance on dried parsley. I added the parsley to the bread crumbs before sautéing the fish. It was pretty fancy for my household and my mom actually thought that I bought it! After convincing her that I had actually made it, she ran and bragged to my nana about how good of a cook I was.
If you had to blog about one ingredient every day for a year, what would it be?
I know, I know, it’s totally clichéd, but I’m going to say it anyway: chocolate. A close second would be onion, because literally everything savory that I make starts with onions.
I will never eat:
Raspberries. Yeah, I said it. Give me any berry but raspberries.
Who would you love to have over for dinner?
Another tough one! Ok … living: Junot Díaz, Assata Shakur, and Jack Kornfield; dead: the Buddha and the Kellogg Brothers.
What’s your go-to quick and easy dinner?
Cereal, cheese and crackers, rice and beans. Not together.
