While I was creating this blog, I was thinking of ways I could “sass it up” and incorporate more of my wonderful friends and family into it. One of my very close friends, Jessica, is an excellent baker and cook. She is a superstar with fondant icing and she was notorious for bringing my PT classmates and me a variety of treats while we sat through hours of class in rooms without windows. We love to talk food (and exercise too ). So after speaking together, we came up with the idea of doing a special event where we cook together and try new recipes. I like to call it “Cooking with Jess.”
This past Sunday afternoon, we got together at my house and made a menu of: panko-crusted perch, corn chowder, wilted lettuce, artisan bread, and creme brulee. It was a lot of fun. One of the things I love most about cooking with others is that I learn different ways and methods of preparing food. Jess helped her mom cater events as she was growing up, so she has a lot of good tricks up her sleeve.
Stay tuned for the pictures and recipes from our afternoon together!
