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!
