About Me

Hey there!

As the title pretty much explains, this blog is a chronicle of my experiences learning how to cook as I live on my own for the first time. I can count the number of times I’ve used an oven on one hand. I’m a full time university student and a competitive dancer in my spare time, so not only am I figuring out how to cook, but I’m juggling eating for the dancer inside me, eating for the stressed student inside me, and maintaing a healthy diet in doing so. Along the lines of maintaining a healthy diet- I am very interested in proper nutrition, so expect lots of nutritional tidbits, and probably explanations of things in way more detail than you ever cared for. Sometimes I just can’t control the health sciences major inside of me 🙂

So, my friends, if you

  • have never cooked a day in your life,
  • find all the recipes online complicated and full of ingredients that normal people just don’t own,
  • want to eat a meal you don’t have to feel guilty about eating

then this is the place for you! I will be posting recipes as I try them, sharing my successes and failures, in the hopes that my experiences can somehow help another poor soul with no cooking skills fend for themselves.

You don’t have to be a Julia Child to survive university without a meal plan!

Happy Cooking… oh, and one more thing- you can call me Kate 🙂

    Love the theme of your blog! When I was first living on my own, I had no idea how to cook—the kitchen disasters were far from blog-worthy 🙂

      Thanks! It’s pretty hit or miss for me, but I guess this is just a way of keeping myself honest and forcing myself to cook regularly, regardless of the outcome haha.
