So you’re in the super market and you’re trying to find a quick recipe to make for dinner, you pull up pinterest. You type in “Chicken Dinner Recipes.” You of course, get a ton of delicious looking chicken meals that pop up, you see one photo that catches your eye and say “ok, this is the one.” You click on the recipe, it takes you to a food blog, you’re scrolling and scrolling for what seems like forever and after scrolling through this person’s entire life story about how one time her mom made this chicken on a cold rainy September day, you finally get to the recipe. I don’t want to be one of those pages.
At the end of the day, nobody wants to know my life story, and if you do, I will gladly give it to you right here instead of on every recipe.
I live in Alaska and I live about 20 miles away from the nearest grocery store or place to eat at. So I really needed to start meal planning and cooking every night. A “quick trip” to the store to get milk for making mac and cheese now becomes an hour long journey round trip. I learned what staples to always have in my kitchen, I learned when to buy in bulk and what to buy in bulk. I learned how to make things last, and I can help you learn too.
I do work a full time job and have an hour commute each way to and from work so I try to cook things that are fast and easy on weeknights and save the recipes that take a little longer to make for the weekends.
Main things I want to accomplish with this blog:
- Give you delicious recipes that are affordable and don’t have weird ingredients that you ask yourself “Where do I even buy that?”
- Teach you to plan your grocery trips so you aren’t running to the store every night for one ingredient.
- Create a menu for you in case you don’t want to deal with it yourself.
- Teach you the kitchen staples that everyone should have in their kitchen!
