Now I realize that it’s been a while since I’ve done a Cooking with Fel post and it’s not because I haven’t been cooking or that I’ve been lazy (which always seems like the reason I don’t post) – I’ve just been uninspired recently. Although it’s spring, the weather in NYC has been very fickle recently so I haven’t been able to explore the farmers markets as much as I would like. Without my farmers markets, I’ve just been buying and cooking the same old stuff and…well…honestly, I’m bored of it all.
To get myself pumped about cooking again, I’ve decided I’m going to do two things:
- I’m going back to the farmers market once the weather starts warming up again.
- When I really feel uninspired, I’ll try to cook my way through the Williams Sonoma Cooking at Home cookbook.
Why this particular cookbook? Well, quite honestly, it’s the only cookbook I own right now. But, I think it’s a good one to work from – the techniques are straightforward, the recipes don’t involve a gazillion ingredients (which is one of my pet peeves about most cookbooks, seeing that I’m typically just cooking for myself and can’t afford to fill an entire fridge for one recipe) and the book is 640 pages long, with recipes for salad, dessert and everything in between, so I doubt I’m going to run out of things to cook anytime soon.
So let’s see how this new project of mine turns out! Hopefully this will get me back into the cooking groove again…
