Welcome to Aiming for Edible!
I’m a fourth year business student living in Vancouver, British Columbia and I cannot cook to save my life. My family has never really taken an interest in food and we’re usually too time-crunched to even try. We’ve fallen back on a lot of preserved and packaged food to save time and provide variety.
My 25 day Cooking Challenge
With the goal of developing some basic cooking skills over my winter break, I have challenged myself to cook a new meal every day, for 25 days. This blog will record my experiences: the tasty, the burnt, and the bittersweet.
It is my hope that this challenge will pass on advice and insight to other students that are in a similar situation. A bit of a Julie and Julia experience!
How I Choose the Challenge
As I have no intuition for throwing a meal together, I will be following recipes. Please note that almost none of the recipes that I use are my own; most of the recipes used have been found on food blogs or recipe sites.
Don’t let the word recipe scare you! I look for recipes with minimal effort; simple, easy, non-technical recipes. I’m also looking for recipes with commonly found, unprocessed ingredients. While I value simplicity, I refuse to sacrifice flavour and variety! Ill try to mix it up with new and different food combinations.
I hope you can join me in my journey as I aim for edible, and possibly even tasty food!
