Jaime P – Amateur Blogger Professional Bacon Lover Baker (Bacon, I still love you)

Three years ago, I could not cook anything more complicated than boxed Mac n’ Cheese.  I was also the pickiest eater I knew.  Those things sound mutually exclusive, but trust me, they’re not. Frustrated, I decided to learn to cook. Turns out, I wasn’t picky – I was just eating bad food.  I fell in love with cooking, put my existing life on hold, and went to culinary school. I work worked at a recreational culinary school in Chicago for two years, and currently, I am a baker at a pastry shop.  This is not a course I would recommend to most people, but I don’t regret it one bit.

When I’m not working, I’m eating as much as I can make excuses for, playing with my puppy puppies in the park,

Said Puppies

cooking (one would hope so, eh? I am steering this crazy ship), reading, listening to NPR, wandering around Chicago, and indulging in an occasional bout of navel gazing, just so I can say I have not lived an unexamined life.  There’s a quiz at the end of it, right?

And now a return to writing.  Huzzah.

I’ve gathered quite an arsenal of delicious recipes in my time at culinary school and more culinary school.  I’m constantly experimenting. I don’t want you eating boxed Mac n’ Cheese.  I like you too much to let that happen. I’m happy to share what I’ve learned.  Here.  Now.  Let’s go.  Are you still reading this? Go on. Get you some recipes.
