Living with a culinary student isn’t the best recipe for making one feel domestic in the kitchen. I am someone who really likes things perfect when it comes to entertaining, gift giving, etc…, so the fact that I wasn’t a great cook was irritating. About a year ago, right around the time I discovered the meaning of life, I had a revelation that I was okay with the fact that I am not a perfect cook. I now mostly cook appetizers and follow recipes, which has proven to be completely fulfilling.
Yesterday I decided to make an elaborate breakfast of french toast, bacon and fruit to go along with my Bloody Mary (see new thing #1). I used one of Wolfgang Puck’s recipes and submitted it to my friend who has a cooking blog. She has taken guest chefs before and it has become a bit of an arms race to get a post on her glamorous site. Consider it done. My new thing for January 2nd:
I became a guest chef on a food blog.

P.S. I promise the remaining 363 entries will not all be food/drink related! Probably only about 349.
