Normally, I’m not the kind of person that says Oh Em Gee! You Guys Have To Read This Blog! because I think it’s kinda douchey, and since the internet is full of those that are douchey, I refrain. But today is different.
The Cuz emailed a while back and was all “a cooking blog, blah blah blah” and I was all “yeah, okay, here ya go, have a nice day”. The other day, in my oh-so-busy day, I decided to check it out.
Um, hi. I kind of want to cook now.
I think it helps that The Cuz and Another Robin have toddlers and have to keep that in mind when they cook. Since I have the diet of a toddler (okay, 82 toddlers, but you get the point), this is stuff I a) like and b) can figure out. I have a handful of cookbooks on my shelf, including Help! My Apartment has a Kitchen and The 4 Ingredient Cookbook. The thing is, aside from Kool Aid Pie (don’t ask), I haven’t made anything from either cookbook, which is why I kind of shrugged off a cooking blog.
I watch Top Chef for the drama and the hairstyle ideas. Not for cooking ideas.
There are at least three recipes The Robin Posse have posted so far that I really want to try. My biggest pet peeve of cooking for one person is that I don’t do the logical thing and put the rest in the ‘fridge, I eat it. These two tell me how to freeze it. And reheat it. I need that and books don’t offer that!
Anyway, Frigidaire Pair is now in my Google Reader, and it’s the only blog under cooking category.
