The Up-Skilled Kitchen

As much as I used to love watching my grandmother in the kitchen,there was so much I just didn’t pick up on while distracted by her songs and eating up all her good Southern cooking.

As I transitioned into healthier eating, I learned things as I went along.  There was a lot of trial and error involved.  Yet, as I’ve said a many a times before, cooking is not just a talent, it’s a skill.  That means it’s totally learnable!

 Here are a few things I’ve gotten to learn along the way that may not exactly be commonplace in the Standard American Kitchen but they have come in handy a great many times in my own and hope they’ll be helpful in yours too!​
