to-cook list

over the past year, i’ve had the inspiration to cook more and to cook healthier. i consequently subscribed to a blog called “tastespotting,” which basically reblogs all kinds of recipes, from desserts to entrees to salads to sauces, posting at least 200 recipes each day! but i’m particular in what i choose to bookmark, to make sure they are college-friendly, meaning both easy and inexpensive to prepare. even as i’m on the verge of leaving my ucla undergraduate life, i know i’ll find these recipes invaluable to helping me learn to be a better cook.

since i don’t have enough time to list their recipes, i’ll just list what you should look forward to in the future of this blog and my culinary journey:

  • goan-style shrimp curry
  • steamed rice with ginger chicken
  • crispy pork belly recipe
  • crab & shrimp salad with avocado
