Simple Stovetop Mac & CheeseEveryday Meals

by zirbirt | 5/26/2015

Ok, when we think of mac & cheese, most of us think of that boxed stuff. It's supposed to be faster than home made and still be good and creamy. The truth of it though, you can make much creamier, more flavorful and far better max and cheese in the same amount of time with very little skill required.

Bake Your Own Bread Challenge

by zirbirt | 5/22/2015

Bread is something we try not to put a lot of thought into and just grab what is on the shelf. If we actually put a little effort in though, fresh bread can elevate even the most common sandwich, and can save us a lot of money plus improve our health. So, lets take a closer look at bread, and how we can make our own with very little effort and only a fraction of the cost.

Apple Crisp Oatmeal CookiesDesserts & Baking

by zirbirt | 5/19/2015

I spent a long time trying to find the right oatmeal cookie recipe. I wanted a cookie that was slightly crisp yet delicate on the outside and soft and moist on the inside, but I didn't want it to be too thick or too lumpy. Sadly, I never found a recipe that worked... but one day, I had an idea.

From queso, to mac and cheese; a simple cheese sauce is one recipe no one should be without.

What is Cooking Skillups?

Most cooking sites and food blogs tend to favor elaborate recipes that requires a lot of skill, some luck and hard to find ingredients. As a home cook, I know how difficult it can be to find simple meals that you can easily prepare for your family on a daily basis. Because of this we get caught in a rut of making the same meals over and over, or worse relying on frozen and packaged foods to keep our family fed.

The goal of Cooking Skillups is to give us normal home cooks a place to share recipes, ideas and experiences; as well as successes and even failures. So together we can help each other figure out new, cost effective and delicious ways to bring joy to our dinner tables.
