My husband and one of my daughters love to cook so I really don’t do much cooking. However, my daughter is leaving home in the fall so I think it might be a good idea to learn to cook a few healthy meals.
Our pantry is well stocked so I could probably make pretty much anything but I decided to start with something easy. My daughter loves Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything so I decided to make pancakes from a recipe in that book.
I started by doing what Bill told us to do in class the first week. I gathered all the ingredient and put them in small bowls in the order that they were needed in the recipe.
This worked well except I did have a lot of dishes to wash when I was done. I was doing pretty good until I read “separate the eggs”.
This was kind of difficult but I’m sure I will get better at this with practice! I did a pretty good job beating the egg whites with an electric hand mixer!
My daughter loves to go to local farms and pick strawberries, blueberries, raspberries apples do I added some of her frozen blueberries to the batter. The pancakes actually turned out pretty good. I might like cooking! I look forward to week two’s assignment.
