Episode 4 - Measuring (or not)

I don’t like to measure. I don’t like to measure so much that I rarely make anything that demands precision…like baking.

Exact measuring cramps my style and who wants their style cramped, right? That’s what we’re talking about in this episode, how measuring can get in the way of freeing yourself in the kitchen and cooking.

My mom never measured anything. Imagine how difficult it was trying to learn anything about cooking from her. Or, maybe you had a mom like that, too?

No matter, we’re going to help whether you’re someone who loves to or hates to measure. So here’s our final game changer before we start talking about the really fun stuff!

In this episode, we’re going to “suggest” you throw away your salt and pepper shakers. Why? Because they’re like using a black box. If you’re going to season food, you have to be in control and you can’t be in control if you can’t see what you’re doing.

So, we’re going to guide you through the process of measuring without measuring. We’ll teach you about creating your own reference points so you can totally release your cooking animal.

Another fun part of this episode is the (continuing) announcement of the winner of our May contest winner. We celebrated Moms throughout the month of May as a part of our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration and we loved the story so much we recorded a Facebook Live for our business page. You can watch our shenanigans there and hear the story written and submitted by Tiffany Christ Zachary. She won a Cooking Class for Two and has already signed herself (and her mom) up for our next Pasta Making 101 Class…how fun is that?
