    “Anyone can cook, but only the fearless can be great.” – Gusteau

    If you've seen Ratatouille, you know how much of a chef Remy is. Without giving away any spoilers, I'll say I have thought of him every now and then when it comes to my cooking skills.

    While I'm best friends with my food apps, over the past few months I may have ditched the quick ordering and started to cook and bake actual food that tasted great all from home.

    Here are the ways I prepared my cooking, according to Remy from Ratatouille.

    1. I decided it was time for me to conquer the kitchen and really hone in on my food skills.

    As simple and easy as I thought it may have sounded, I soon realized cooking multiple times a day was a much bigger task than expected.

    2. I quickly realized this required me to learn actual measurements, like how many tablespoons go for each desired recipe...

    ...and I started to question my new-found temporary career, considering how expensive this was all going to be.

    3. Starting at the strike of 8 a.m., I woke up every day ready to conquer the kitchen.

    After all, it was suggested for us to stay in and stop the spread.

    4. Each day became a personal mission to out-cook myself.

    Did I mention how pricey this was all starting to become?

    11. All while remembering to wash my hands for 30 seconds to make sure I did my part in stopping the spread.

    Turmeric, paprika, basil, scallions, sea salt, cane sugar, etc..everything!!

    13. All while deciding to try eating as much food as I could cook, even if it didn't taste so great.

    Burnt cookies, anyone?!

    14. I felt on top of the world and thought I was onto something once it started to smell real good in the kitchen.

    15. After all that cooking, I may have decided to tackle the biggest food challenge that was on everyone's news feed: sourdough bread.

    But ultimately decided not to.

    16. In the end, even if each recipe didn't end well, I at least did the best I could in challenging myself, given our new circumstance.
