I'm amazed how people resort to fast foods and junk food and claim it to be cheaper!
I keep the necessities on hand (pasta, dry beans, legumes, spices, stocks, frozen meats, potatoes, baking goods) and pick up fresh vegetables, fruits, and usually cheese weekly or bi-weekly. With a little bit of creativity and forethought I am able to whip up some fantastic little meals that are not only fabulously tasty but very cost effective.
More and more I am finding myself interested in cooking and baking! Right when I was getting really into it, late 2007, I burned my entire right palm and fingers in kitchen accident. It definitely kind of cramped my style and increased my nerves in the kitchen. In March of this year I found myself finally in a situation where I was living roommate free! Since then my desire to cook has grown into somewhat of a passion.
I am a huge fan of anything that uses fresh ingredients when possible - vegetables, fresh herbs and spices, and love making my own pizza doughs, baking from scratch, and avoiding any sort of pre-packaged food that can be easily made from scratch! I am becoming increasingly aware of what flavors work together and what spices complement each other! I feel like a nerd but I think I am asking for spices for Christmas this year! Or maybe I'll ask for a premium membership to Zaar? :)
Indian food! Swordfish, VEGETABLES!, rosemary, basil, vinegars, and anything I can make for the first time that I never thought about making from scratch before! I love to bake but I often don't eat a lot of what I do bake - my favorite however is a mango cheesecake with pistachio graham cracker crust! :)
I was a vegetarian for 5 years and still eat a lot of meat free meals. I am hoping to go back to vegetarianism after Thanksgiving and would like to be 75% raw by January first. I am excited at the prospect of discovering raw food recipes and creating delicious raw dishes to share with everyone on Zaar. :)
