Day 1

Here I am.  Career ended.  Minimum wage Prep Cook position acquired.  Broke from overdue library culinary book fees.  My journey has officially begun! 

It seems like everybody these days wants to be a chef, and I hear so many positives, and of course so many negatives about this field.  It seems the only way it is worth it is if you truly love to cook, and want to devote your life to it.  The way I see it, I'm already devoted!  Anyone who knows me knows about my Christmas basket fiasco's (when I don't sleep during the month of December because I'm too busy cooking and baking at 3 am in a drunk/ zombie-like state).  Who needs sleep when there's cooking to be done!  Cooking is not a chore to me- it is an expression, a release of my creativity.  I guess I never considered it a career, always more of a hobby.  I'm now in my late 20's, evaluating what I am doing with my life and how I got here, and decided it's time.  My dream job is not going to just happen to me.  I've got to go get it.  

Stay tuned for my first day as a prep cook, photos and recipes as I experiment, and the roller-coaster ride that just became my life.


  1. Could you post your recipe for the cucumber sandwiches from Suzie's bridal shower?? They were delish!

  2. I can't take credit for that one- that is on allrecipes- search for cucumber dill toasties. I lightly toast the bread, and only use 3/4 pack of italian dressing mix. Make sure you make the cream cheese mixture ahead of time- the flavors need to mingle in the fridge!
