I Can Cook Now!


By: Connor Lenahan

Earlier this summer I had to teach myself how to cook for the first time. Needless to say it did not go well. I burned grilled cheese the first time I made it and curled up into a ball in defeat on my bed. Understandable, right?

Well tonight I elected to steal my mom’s recipe for risotto with bacon bits and cheese and I can say that without a doubt it’s one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Maybe it’s because I made it – or entirely because I made it – but I couldn’t be happier. Especially because risotto is complicated and there was a chance that I was going to severely screw it up.

I’ll open my restaurant soon. Eat your heart out, Gordon Ramsay.
