Have you all been keeping up with Joanna Goddard’s basic food series? She’s trying to teach herself to cook by mastering classic recipes she believes every mom/wife/lady should know, and she’s had a killer lineup of guest bloggers so far. The other night, I figured out exactly why Luisa’s pasta sauce made the cut. Adding a dollop of ricotta to a simple sauce of tomatoes and garlic took a plain weeknight dinner to a meal I’d serve for company. And in only about 10 extra seconds.
I love checking in with the series every Thursday, not just to see who is blogging, but also what they’re blogging about. What are A Cup of Jo’s Classics going to be? And better yet, what are mine?
This is what I’ve come up with so far:
- Macaroni and Cheese
- Grilled Cheese
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Meatloaf (I keep meaning to show you Grandma Glass of Milk’s recipe)
- Lemon Cake
- Roast Chicken
What about you dear readers? What are your classics? What you can make with your eyes closed, or what you feel like you should be able to?
