Since I grew up with a chef for a father, everyone assumed that I knew how to cook too. Sure, I had picked up a lot of tips, but when I moved out on my own, I realized I didn't know how to make very much at all! After all, my dad did all the cooking and he was pretty territorial about his kitchen. Luckily, he instilled a sense of culinary adventure in me, so I'm not afraid to try much. I once went an entire month where I added cinnamon to everything, just to see how it would all turn out. (Consequently, did you know that cinnamon goes really well on ice cream, scrambled eggs, and pizza? No joke! ) Now, I'm not too shabby of a cook, although there's still one thing that holds me back: lack of tools! No grill, no food processor, no crock pot, etc. - it really limits the recipes I can make. But oh well! There's still a lot of adventure to be had. ^_~
