It may seem daunting to bake or cook from scratch, but that is part of having fun in the kitchen! Cupcake Girls believe that cooking is a subjective experience that encourages creativity, allowing you to combine flavors to cater to your likes and dislikes.
Just like every passion or talent, cooking takes practice and confidence. Find your individuality in the kitchen by trusting your taste buds. Start with a recipe that you enjoy and tweak it to make it personal. A simple grilled cheese "sammie" is a perfect example of how to twist a comfort food staple:
- Fresh Sourdough bread with smokey Cheddar, tomato and avocado
- Flat bread with Brie and apples
- French bread with Mozzarella, tomato, fresh basil and a bit of honey
Personalize your plate by making subtle changes to any recipe to suit your palate. Look for ideas and techniques within a recipe, but establish your own style and before you know it, you won't feel so handcuffed to your recipe book. There are countless ways to revolutionize an old or new recipe to suit your mood; the possibilities are endless. You will reap the benefits of your creativity as your confidence in the kitchen grows.
