Seriously. You don’t need special training, just some practice and a little courage to try new things. You don’t need a fancy kitchen or expensive equipment. I’m not going to lie, there is some nice stuff out there for the die hard aspiring chef, but you don’t NEED it. I got most of my start up equipment at garage sales, auctions and thrift stores. I have treated myself to a few things over the years like a KitchenAid stand mixer. I love it, but it isn’t a requirement. Be brave. Some of my best discoveries and tips have been born from cooking disasters. Nobody puts their disasters on Pinterest or Instagram, but I guarantee you those beautiful pictures came after one or more test runs of a new recipe.
I will share good recipes when I find them (I have a great stash from my grandmother), and tips to help you learn from my mistakes.
