How many times have you wondered “How do I make (whatever recipe)”, only to find there are tons of posts online with every variation of the recipe you’re looking for, but nothing with just the basics. Don’t get me wrong, French Toast on homemade gluten-free pretzel bread with blueberries sounds delicious, but really, I’m just looking for a basic French Toast recipe. What’s the best milk to eggs ratio? How long do I dunk the bread? That’s where RecipeTeacher.com comes in.
You see, since I was in my early teens (the early 80’s), I’ve always enjoyed cooking. I discovered early on that making fresh recipes was so much more rewarding than just heating up a “TV dinner” (do they even call them that anymore?) I would go through all the recipe books in the house and find all the recipes for whatever it was I wanted to make, and then figure out what the “classic” or “basic” ingredients were, and start with that. This approach to cooking has served me well. Knowing the basics, understanding some of the most basic elements of recipes has allowed me to add personal touches here and there and get the very best results for what I was making. I’m not culinary trained, just someone who’s enjoyed cooking and making things that people say “wow” to!
When i’m not messing around in the kitchen, i’m in my kayak paddling around local Chicago area lakes and rivers enjoying nature, fishing, photography and loving the outdoors! I’m also a huge fan of the band Phish and seeing local bands.
I hope you enjoy these recipes and the simplistic approach. You don’t need to be an expert of any kind to make these recipes. I’ll help teach the basics, and you’ll make a great recipe!
