Let's Scramble Some Eggs...

If you think you can't cook, think again. Cooking is all about being fearless. Acknowledge when something doesn't work, identify the problem, and try it again. That's what I do, and this is a showcase of the results!

Introducing the mini-Marthas!

We moved in to our first apartment last September.  Basically, there is a door, a stove, two beds, two desks and a bathroom.  I guess that's what we get for our first home :)  Thursday night dinners with my friend Liz started as soon as the semester got underway.  It was our strategy to keep in touch with out insane schedules: mandatory weekly dinners! (Sound a little Gilmore-ish?)  At our first dinner, Liz made an off-hand comment that Hazel and I are what Martha Stewart would have been in college. 

Here is a summary of a typical night in the apartment: 
5:00 Gilmore Girls and knit/cross stitch
6:00 start/work on dinner (this part is always involved because I enjoy experimenting)
7/8:00 eat dinner while watching NCIS or House or Millionaire Matchmaker
11:00 complain that we didn't get any work done
12:00 bed time!

As you can see, we are predictable home-bodies who enjoy a good calorie filled dinner with a good glass of wine.  

Bios: ...and now, introducing the mini-Marthas!

My name is Anna, and I do all the cooking.  Sometimes I cook meals from my childhood, sometimes I cook recipes I find online (although I never follow them strictly), and sometimes the things I create are just concoctions I dream up (or accidentally stumble across).

My roommate's name is Hazel, and she does all the dishes and crafts.  She taught me how to cross-stitch and she is a knitting fiend.  Sometimes she is a spaz, but everyone deserves to dance around once in a while shouting the words to "Party in the USA."

And now, let the home-making commence!
