Some of us love the kitchen, others prefer delivery and dining out (or cereal with milk, if pressed to compile their own meal). Regardless of where you lie on the spectrum, here are the dishes you should master in 2016.
Eggs Every Way
Chances are you’ve scrambled an egg or two before, but there is more than one way to break an egg. Try poaching, soft-boiling or serving them sunny-side up in 2016. For a complete list of all of the ways to cook eggs, check out this article.
Brownies from Scratch
There’s nothing wrong with boxed brownies, but nothing says “I’m a badass in the kitchen” like homemade desserts, and brownies are a huge crowd pleaser. Check out these 3-ingredient brownies for an easy and delicious treat.
A Slow Cooker Dish
They’re touted as easy to make, but slow cooker meals can be, well, slow. And with delivery pizza 5 minutes away, slowly cooking food seems unnecessary. But after checking out these recipes, you’ll be running out to buy a slow cooker – call it a New Years present to yourself.
Pasta from Scratch
Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Actually, this dip would’ve been useful to master before you rang in the New Year, but learn it in 2016 and you’ll be set for every party ever.
This is the king of all salads and it’s surprisingly easy. Mix up a summer version using this recipe.
If you didn’t make it in 2015, it’s time to make it now.
Chia Seed Pudding
Russet, red or sweet, mash whichever you like in 2016. Make them like this.
Homemade Salad Dressing
While Aunt Jemima is always a welcome member at the breakfast table, from scratch is a smidge more admirable. Try this recipe for fluffy, mouthwatering flapjacks hailing from the other side of the pond.
Sweet Potato Fries
Happy New Year, it’s time to get cooking.
