I'm not the best cook.
I grew up as sous chef to my Mom, who we've already established is the best cook in the universe (no I'm not biased), so it would seem that I would just be a born natural in the kitchen, right? Not so. Genetically, the fact that I am not an exceptional cook makes no sense at all, it's so sad. After I graduated I thought that what I lacked in raw talent, I could make up for with my passion for
food talent. This thought led me directly to culinary school, which is kind of hilarious. "I love food, I eat it everyday! I watch Food Network all the time, sometimes even while eating food, culinary school is definitely for me!" You can imagine what a breeze culinary school was for me (not). But hey, if you had fun you won, and getting college credit to eat flaky, warm, delicious croissants was really, really fun.
Anyway, I wanted to admit that before I shared this recipe so you know that this is no cooking blog, and that again, I'm not the best cook. If the stars align, I really do love it though. Stars align; meaning that the kitchen is immaculate, Ivy is happily entertaining herself, and I happen to have all the right ingredients on hand. Unfortunately, those things are all kind of a rarity, so I like to keep the difficulty level to a minimum around here.
That being said, this is my favorite (read: most simple) recipe to make. It is relatively healthy (I use that term loosely, watch out), vegetarian-friendly, cheap, and best of all- easy to make! I sometimes throw in peas or whatever veggie I'm making with it merely to save the extra step of adding them later. I'm a mixer.
