Practice Makes Perfect!Wednesday, May 09, 2012
I might only get a chance to post a blog entry a couple times a week, but I'm cooking almost every night whether it's a full meal or just testing out a new ingredient. Check out what I've been working on below. You may see these up on The Kitchenista Diaries as a full recipe soon!
As you can see, sometimes new dishes work great the first time, but often I realize there is more to be done before publishing a final recipe. I make every meal an opportunity to try a new technique or ingredient. It's a fun and exciting way to challenge yourself. If you're learning how to cook, set goals for yourself, even if it's as simple as trying one new recipe a week. I'm really proud of how much I'm learning week to week in my efforts to publish recipes for The Kitchenista Diaries. It's a little like being in school...only I'm creating my own homework assignments. I've heard from a few people who have been supportive of my endeavor and feel encouraged to start cooking more themselves. That's awesome! I can already see the difference in some of the dishes I started photographing last year compared to what I'm able to produce now, so I'm here to tell you that practice does make perfect!
P.S. Don't forget, you can always leave a comment here or email me if you have questions, feedback or suggestions!
