My Summer Project

It is decided.  This will be the summer that I learn to cook.  I mean, I can sort of cook now, in that I can read directions and execute them with some success.  But I want to really learn how to cook.  I think that Pioneer Woman looks like a real jumping off point.  Her recipes are fairly easy to understand and they aren't super difficult.  I also think that I am going to get some of the family recipes together too, because I like that kind of tradition.  I feel like maybe I should learn to can something too, because that's a dying art and my grandma is really good at it.  I may even start a sister blog to record my successes (and possibly, my failures too).

I want this summer to be really enjoyed and not wasted away doing nothing.  I want to do some family history stuff with my dad, and more photography in general.  I just feel like I never really get anything accomplished during the summer other than stuff for work and while that's great and necessary, it's not everything.  My goal is for this to be a summer worth remembering, worth celebrating, and sharing.  I'm inching closer to my 30s every day and I just feel like if I don't do it now, when will I?

So, brave friends, I'm calling you and your stomaches to my test kitchen and to my summer in general.  Let's make this one for the record books!


  1. I have PW cookbook and it is great! Another easy one is The Dinner Doctor by Anne Byrn. I always make her chicken pot pie and people sing my praises! :)
    Good luck! I love eating, so I am sure your friends and family will have a blast eating your experiments!

  2. Thanks, Taylor! I am really excited about this! But I think I am going to have to wait until school is out to really give it a go. But there will be stories for sure!

  3. I'm in! Just don't be offended if I spit out beans! LoL!
