For pretty much the entirety of my life I have had one thought towards cooking: someone else can do it for me. I love my mom's cooking, and I love fast-food. And despite my parents efforts to get me to learn how to cook, I have always objected with the mindset of getting rich and having someone else do it for me (a girl can dream, right?).
And then a little over a year ago I got into a relationship where my boyfriend enjoyed cooking, and was good at it, so I let him do it. And it was great.
But with both of our busy schedules, we mostly resorted to fast-food. I've always heard people say, "I'm so sick of fast-food, I want a home-cooked meal." Me? No. Never. I could live off of that junk.
My sister/roommate was disgusted by my eating habits and always told me that's why I was constantly sick and tired. Didn't believe her. How could my fast-food betray me like that? It wouldn't.
But all of a sudden it happened: I constantly felt lethargic. And bloated. And I could not get my skin to clear up.
SO the fast-food queen of the world unhappily decided she would do a little cooking to see if that helped matters.
And even though I almost hate to admit it, it really has been working. And I kind of love cooking and can't stop.
But my favorite part? Finding recipes online and completely switching them up and adding new things to make them my own.
Here's my recipe for loaded baked potato soup (which tasted AMAZING and is a must-try!).
I'd love to hear feedback on how it tastes if you try it! I loved mine! Let me know what you do differently, as well, because I love to try new things.
I'll continue to post new recipes, and a couple of past ones that worked out well!
