I have unfortunate news. Due to a suspected case of whooping cough (“What is this, the Middle Ages?,” J asked me), the Summer Cookie Project (SCP) will have to take a back seat for a week. I offered to bake J a batch of cookies, but he politely declined (“Are you trying to kill me?!?”).
No worries; since I’m pretty much home bound, I’m sure there will be baking projects to come in the next day or two. They just won’t be consumed by anyone but me. And what’s so bad about that, anyway?
A cooking blog? Shocking, I know. Coming from a girl who loves baking but not so much cooking, a cooking blog seems like a stretch. But that’s the point. I’m 25 years old, and although I have a wonderful boyfriend who is a fantastic cook, I really should contribute more to our culinary relationship other than baked goods once or twice a month.
Plus, I like to eat healthier foods, like whole grains and vegetables. And we do probably eat healthier than most couples our age. But we could do better. And I don’t see J whipping up any dishes with brown rice and quinoa anytime soon. So here we are. Let’s do it!
