AMATEUR

FINALLY.

I’ve always wanted my own food blog but this little voice inside kept reminding me that ‘I’m not good enough’, ‘I’m not ready’, ‘My food is not THAT good’, ‘Lots of people are better than me’, ‘I don’t follow recipes’, and ‘I don’t know the proper skills and methods!’ etc etc. These excuses have pushed me back over and over again, and today, I JUST DID IT. One of the biggest and hardest step in achieving your goal- “JUST.DO.IT.”

Alchemic feed – discovering methods and transforming common substances with little value into a substance of great value. My attitude of cooking: Do it your way. I research recipes online all the time but I never 100% follow the original recipe (unless it’s baking)! I like cooking more than baking sweets and it’s really not that complicated. Keeping it short and simple, my way is not the best way, nor professional at all, but it still works. I’m keen to learn more from anyone! I accept any criticisms that will help me grow. Here it goes…

mprovements:
1. The onions were a bit chunky so I’ll definitely chop them more finely next time!
2. I didn’t add any herbs such as parsley and oregano because I didn’t have any at home but they still taste as good without them :).
