college girls can’t cook

15May12

i never had anyone to teach me how to cook. sure, i can bake just about anything, and make a mean macoroni and cheese. at nineteen, i can cook most pastas, and things with ground beef, but everything else was just out of my reach.

then i discovered the blog, college girls can’t cook. the authors of the blog realize that most college girls don’t know how to cook, and so spend a lot of money on processed pre-cooked food. girls who can’t cook aren’t healthy, and gain weight.

needing groceries and inspired by their blog, i set out friday night. i bought the things needed for spanish rice, fried rice, and soup-over-rice. i figured i had better get used to eating rice; at the price, i am going to have to eat it almost every day when i first move to my city.

  1. Perogies with bacon, cheese, onions and sour cream! LOVE!!! Chicken parmigiana is actually pretty easy.

    Soups are super easy and super healthy. You can load them full of vegetables (I would either skip the stock and use water or go for a salt-free stock instead). I like to puree my soups with a blender and then you can freeze them in zip-lock bags. Great for lunch, supper, or a side. My favourite is my spicy tomato basil soup I invented 🙂

    • Soup is something I enjoy making, because you can’t screw up! But in summer, it isn’t too great unless cold.

    With a recipe, you can make ANYTHING. I was much like you. There were a couple of things I knew how to cook, but I never got too adventurous. I started buying cookbooks, and looking up recipes online, starting with things that only had four or five ingredients. Cooking is trial and error. I made a killer dish last night, if you saw from my blog, Thursday’s dinner failed miserably. This is what I’m making tonight …

    So simple. I’m actually getting ready to throw it in the crockpot. And I’m hoping it turns out well.

    • Thanks! I’m doing the same 4/5 ingredient thing. What recipes did you make like that that turned out?

  4. suddenly i have a need for food, wonder why that would be?? lol 😉
