Cooking is not my forte. It is one of my hatreds of life. This will be a problem when I finally move out of my parents house. I just find it obnoxious and a burden. Yes, it gives me something to eat but so does grabbing a head of lettuce or a bowl of cereal. (I know I have very poor eating habits, I’ll write a post and discuss that eventually). I do enjoy baking but I have to be in the correct mood for that.
All that being said, I will cook and I’m not too bad at it. It’s necessary and sometimes I want something hot to eat. In fact you may begin to see more and more recipes on my blog. My specialty is pasta sauce (marinara sauce). I always get compliments for it (except when my brother wants to say his recipe is better). What I find is wrong with most people’s sauce (at least in the US) is that they don’t season worth a crap. They just pour in a jar of basic sauce and warm it up. EW!
Seasoning is always important people!
My marinara sauce recipe:
One 24 ounce jar of tomato sauce
One small yellow or white onion
1 1/4 Cups of Water
1 Tablespoon of Chopped Garlic
1 Tablespoon of Oil
4 Tablespoons of Basil
2 Tablespoons of Onion Powder
2 Tablespoons of Garlic Powder
4 Tablespoons of Italian Seasoning
4 Tablespoons of Oregano
1 1/2 Teaspoons of Thyme
1 Teaspoon of Rosemary
1 Teaspoon of Salt
2 Cups of Mushrooms (optional)
Will serve 2-4.
Hope you enjoyed my marinara sauce recipe. Let me know if you try it and what you think.
