    Even though I rarely cook, I’m actually pretty comfortable in the kitchen. I just LOATHE going to the grocery store so much that I never seem to have any food at home. I’m going to attempt a Whole30 in January to try to force myself to think about what I’m eating and cook for myself more

    Oh god I’m terrible in the kitchen too 🙈 I made chili in the slower cooker this weekend and legit told everyone I know because it’s a BIG deal. I love the idea of having simple go-to meals. I need to be better about this!

    Please continue with tips and updates! I have no clue how to cook and get so overwhelmed! Nice to see not everyone is a gourmet chef out there haha

    I’m very comfortable in the kitchen (at my age, I better be!). I love to cook but don’t like spending hours in the kitchen. What motivates me? 1) Great cookware (I’ve got my eye on a LeCreuset braiser in bright orange…very swoon-worthy!); 2) Great music; 3) Starting with a clean kitchen; 4) A well-stocked kitchen (especially all the basic (and not so basic) spices…buy the smaller jars so you don’t waste money on spices that might go bad; 5) Great recipes (I’m def not one to just go into the kitchen and whip something up). Speaking of “kitchen”, check out The Kitchen on the Food Network. It’s my absolute favorite cooking show because everything they do (including the “It’s 5:00 o’clock somewhere” segment) is very easy to follow and re-create in your own kitchen. They’ve been on air now for 10+ seasons so you can easily DVR the show and catch up on lots of old episodes, as well as check out their section on the Food Network website.

    I was never confident in the kitchen (especially since my boyfriend loves to cook). But one year he needed to fly home and I was left alone to feed myself. I didn’t quite have the money to eat out every night so I asked my mom to give me a quick and easy recipe to last me 2-3 days. I cooked it in the slow cooker. It came out okay (not the best) but I ate it. Tapping into this uncomfortable spot made me want to learn more. Then the Food Network show Worst Cook in America came out and I watched it religiously learning how to use knives, different cookware, etc. Now I sort of like to cook (when I feel like it). Checking out Made in Cookware now because that would get my butt in the kitchen!
