A culinary school degree and years spent cooking does not absolve me from cooking insecurities and if I am honest–it happens often! You know, there are those recipes and cooking techniques (I’m talking to you pressure cooker) that you want to try but they just feel overwhelming! Sometimes they are silly like I used to be afraid to cook grains without a rice cooker and others are legit but that doesn’t mean you have to enable them! For me, my kitchen insecurities are more about a fear of failure than a kitchen catastrophe which is important to point out because a botched recipe isn’t really that scary as it can’t cause much harm!
