Join our Adventures in Learning how to cook

Welcome Cooking with Groot*

During the global COVID pandemic, I began to get bored with the same meals I typically rotate with our dining out and fast food junk. We were even tired ordering out to support local restaurants but got bored with that also.

On a random, bored afternoon, I started watching YouTube videos about budget, frugal dinners to get inspired. After trying a few, I started down a rabbit hole. This blog is about that rabbit hole. You can also see pics on my Instagram, llama.and.groot.

Stay safe everyone and please wear a mask.

*I am in no way connected Marvel or Guardians of the Galaxy. My little Groot planter is just in every picture as he sits near my airfryer.

And adventure to reduce food waste

Also, a believer in doing what I can to save the planet and observing how much food I had been wasting, I have also begun to try to reduce food waste by using up just about all I can, freezing leftovers, and taking scrapes to the community garden.
