A Look Back: The Final Entry for My Class

So it has been quite the semester for me.  I managed to cook 9 meals over the course of this blog.  Though it was far from my goal of 20, I would say I managed to have some fun while working on these entries while still getting my work done.

I’ve kept you all informed on what I’ve learned cooking-wise during these entries, but I must say I’ve learned a lot when it comes to project management as well.

Mostly the fact that it is difficult to schedule 20 meals over 15 weeks especially if the people you hope to cook with don’t have a grade to worry about and you have school work for other classes to worry about too.

This isn’t to say that it is any particular parties fault, it is simply something that I need to work in to planning for other projects.

But now that this semester is done, I am most likely going to continue this blog, so there is no deadlines to meet.  I still plan on cooking and posting what projects I can here for my friends, family, and what online fans I have to read and enjoy.

So thank you for your time, I hope to please you all with my other culinary experiments in the future.

I’m Hungry!: An Introduction

Hey all. Welcome to my blog for my Mass Communications class (MCOM 63) at San Jose State. We were given the luxury of choosing whatever subject we like so I decided on one of my up and coming interests: cooking!

I’ve never been that good at cooking. In fact, I used to fall back on fast food-a lot; one of the hazards of living with roommates who also were not taught to cook. Since then I have decided to take the reins and fix this issue once and for all.
Simplicity in my cooking has been a trademark thus far: I’ve been sticking to pasta recipes mostly. But this blog has provided me with a unique opportunity to expand my repertoire while also spending some quality time with friends.

I hope to walk you all through the journey for each meal: where to get the ingredients, how much it costs to make, the time for preparation and cooking, and of course, eating it!

In addition, I hope to educate you on some of the individuals I intend to cook with. All of them cook different things for different reasons (reasons beyond hunger!)

Cooking has evolved into a way for me to become closer to the people I know and with this blog I hope I can illustrate not only my love of food but how special the people I know are.
