...Before you even think about cooking, put on some good music and open a bottle of wine! I hope you all remember what I said about red wine in my last tips post - ANTIOXIDANTS!!! There. Now we can start concentrating on the food!
Start by putting on a apron, so you don't sully your outfit, which probably need to be hand washed or dry cleaned, while an apron easily can be thrown into the washing machine! The apron I'm wearing used to be my grandma's. A cooking book might help. We (me and my sister) didn't use one this evening though. The cooking book I'm holding was just for the picture!
If you're short like me - 162 cm (5.3 ft) - a pair of high heals might make things in the kitchen a lot easier!
See how much easier I can reach the top shelf in the cupboard when I'm wearing these shoes! They come from "Milan Fashion Freaks" by the way. When you've come this far into the cooking process, it's time to take out a knife!
I'm sorry. Let's try that again...
Take out a KNIFE!!! The bigger the better!
Now comes the easy part. Chop up some things you like. There's no sense in cooking stuff you don't like. Me and sis were making a Christmasy risotto (these pictures were taken just before the holidays), so we used an orange, raisins, pecan nuts, and figs.
Then we blended it together with the rice, saffron and cinnamon. Tadaaaa! It's as easy as that!
But whatever you do after dinner, don't forget to end it with a piece of chocolate! It speeds up the digestion! Here you can see my sisters arm stretching out to grab some dessert, while showcasing her latest tattoo, made with Nirvana's "Heart shaped Box" as inspiration.
That was all for now! I hope it helped...
