Stuck at home and don’t know what to do? Cleaned up all the mess and have nothing productive to do? Why not cook something interesting for yourself or for your family?
Here are few cooking ideas to try and you never have to be bored again:
Pasta – Pasta is an absolute favorite for almost everybody. It is more like a safety food you can rely on when you have guests. Cook a batch of pasta along with some other food and you are sure to able to feed everyone who comes home.
There are a number of pasta sauces one can try. If you want to do it the laborious way, you can even make the pasta from scratch. Prepare the dough by following instructions that you can find on any cookery website online or check some cooking videos to see how it is done.
For the sauce, do a little research and finalize on something unique. Go for something traditional so that you can bring the real Italian flavor home. The best thing about pasta is you can make a big batch of pasta and freeze it. You can use it as and when you want. Hence it is something tasty, interesting yet something that need not go waste if you can’t eat right away.
Dessert – Instead of baking a regular cake or making a fruit custard, go for something more challenging. A crème Brulee is always challenging as it is very difficult to get the right consistency on the inside with the perfect burnt sugar topping. One can never be too sure about this as you can know the consistency only after it has set well in the freezer.
Different flavors can be tried if you are comfortable with torching the sugar layer on top and nailing the semi-solid dessert on the inside. Also, this can be a good dessert to serve your guests too. Again, this can be stored and used for a number of days.
