Are you ready for my adventures in cooking? :-D
Ever since my Sainted Ma died, in 1990 I've had to cook for myself (In addition to relying on fast food, and frozen dinners, on occasion).
My first adventures in cooking occurred as a teen when I learned to scramble a truly MEAN egg (Actually three) for my breakfast, progressing to fixing my own Mac and cheese/tomato concoctions.
Of course I became expert at putting together peanut butter sandwiches, tuna sandwiches, various lunch meat sandwiches and assorted other delicacies essential for a bachelors very survival.
The next big step in my Culinary Edumication came in 1995 when a friend of mine gave me a basic recipe for a rice and ground beef meal and 1 for fixing a Pot Roast.
God! Was I in heaven, or what? :-D
Chef Kiril was in his element! ;-D
Well, this led to my eventually improvising additions to the 1st recipe and even to my Macaroni meals, and then buying my first crock pot.
A 6 qt. one. (Well, Mom always said my eyes were bigger than my stomach!)
I also started buying various cookbooks in preperation for the day when I could afford to splurge some on my grocery shopping and expand my meal horizons.
In recent years I've mastered the Smoothie Machine, the Waffle Maker and a few other gadgets as well.
I've still gotta explore those cookbooks!
Afterall, a man's gotta eat and if he lives alone he's gotta continually learn to cook for himself!
I intend to share my cooking skills, here, and encourage the brave to fix and try my handywork. ;-D
Naked Chef eat yer heart out! ;-D
First up is my Special Combo Meal.
