I am a self-confessed food-blogaholic. Call me crazy, but I have this whole morning routine where I sit eating my daily breakfast of an egg, an english muffin, a cup of coffee, and a bowl of oatmeal, while parsing through some of my favorite blogs, jotting down recipes that I plan on making in the near future. My to-make-soon list is now bordering on 100 pages…but that’s another story for another day. And so after being obsessed with bloggers for a year, I have decided to become one myself.
But who am I, you might ask (and this is something I ask myself pretty frequently, actually). At the time of writing this, I am a 21-year-old college senior (soon to be 22!!) who loves to cook and eat healthy meals. I became interested in cooking about a year ago, which was the same time I became interested in nutrition (a coincidence – I think not). I was sick of eating dining hall food that, not only didn’t taste good, but was pretty darn bad for me to boot. So, never one to back away from a challenge (after all, I didn’t get into MIT by sitting back and letting the world pass me by) I went to Macy’s, bought a set of cookware, and jumped in. This past year in cooking has been one of the most delicious of my life, mostly thanks to all of the blogs that I’ve frequented and borrowed recipes and ideas from along the way. My motto in cooking is that I can “healthify” basically any recipe, and thus can eat whatever I want, in some kind of moderation. So join me on my cooking adventures as I try to prove to the world that even college students can cook good (dare I even say great) food that is healthy, affordable, quick and – MOST IMPORTANTLY – delicious.
