Razwick's Offcial Optimism Juice, Version 2Basic Recipes

by Razwick | 1/11/2016

I'll be honest, the first iteration of this cocktail recipe was good, but I had a lot of refining to do in order to make this a satisfying drink that you can make and enjoy on a regular basis. I think I've gotten pretty darn close to perfect on this one, if by perfect I mean "what I was trying to accomplish" which, in this case, I do!

Big Stuffed Chicken BurritosBasic Recipes

by zirbirt | 5/16/2015

Ah burritos, a delicious classic that is so sadly underdeveloped. The problem most of us face when making burritos is a complete lack of inspiration. We have a flour tortilla, then fill it with the basics, canned refried beans, taco meat, and cheese. The problem is, they become very dull very fast. But if we expand our thinking just a little bit, they can be an amazing meal.

Cheese Sauce (everything from Queso to mac and cheese)Basic Recipes

by zirbirt | 5/18/2015

From queso, to mac and cheese; a simple cheese sauce is one recipe no one should be without. Have you ever been to a Mexican restaurant and ordered the cheese dip for your chips? or had nachos smothered in a creamy processed cheese substance? Have you ever wondered if there was an easy way to make mac & cheese without the box? Well the answer is a simple cheese sauce. I figured out the best way to do this on my own, and interestingly enough, it started at breakfast.

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.
