The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Being A Good Cook

I love cooking, but I wasn’t always a great cook. I’d accidentally burn garlic, overcook pasta, over salt veggies and start preparing some cookie dough only to realize that I was short one ingredient. It takes a lot of time, a lot of patience and a lot of watching Food Network and scouring food blogs before I actually became a little better than decent at the whole cooking thing. I basically pretend I’m Ina Garten from Barefoot Contessa.
