Here at A Soft Place to Land, I love to prattle on and on about all things home. But one thing you will never find me writing about is cooking. It's just not my thing. I'm not a bad cook but I'm not a great one either. I guess I'd call myself a utilitarian cook (although I made a killer roast last night). My family won't starve but Food Network won't be asking me to host my own show either.
That brings me to the point of my post...I have a friend who very well may get that call from Food Network someday. Kendra from My First Kitchen (isn't she cute?) has made it her life's mission to share the joy that can come from cooking.
She's not over there making haute-cuisine that requires 15 recipes within the recipe. She's making real food for real people. And she's doing it in a sweet and wonderful way. You can't help but love her! Watch some of her videos and you'll see what I mean.
Here are a few of my favorites from her site;
The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie - Oh my, YES!
Slow-Cooker Barbecue - She lives in NC so she knows a thing or two about BBQ
$10 Dinner Challenge - Thrifty and delicious!
Butter-Suckin' Hotdogs - Oh glory! Butter and hotdogs! I also love the fact that it looks like she's been sipping the cooking wine in the still image for the video.
Now Kendra doesn't know that I'm over here singing her praises. So let's have a little fun...everyone run over there and leave a comment on one of her posts. We'll see how long it takes her to figure out what's going on.
I can't wait to get back to NC so that I can take one of her cooking classes!
