Fear takes different forms.
When we are young, we are afraid of the darkness.
We grow up and find that it’s not that scary.

This is not precisly a bruschetta. Technically it is. It is a piece of toasted bread, rubbed with garlic, topped with delicious ingredients.

Summer is officially over. Today marks the start of Autumn, but the weather has already changed with a mellowing breeze and yellowing trees. There’s a charm about this season.

One of my mission statements in this #Cookin5m2 is to share easy recipes that almost anyone can do. Although I do some nice and fancy dishes, I like to present the simple stuff in a nice looking way adding some small touches and elements that transports the dish to a different level.
New to the kitchen?
Jealous of all the delicious things you see online and you want to make them too?
Here is a list of things your kitchen should have to be able to cook basic food:
Stovetop and Oven
Obviously! Unless you are into rubbing two stones over a stack of hay , or have a wood-fired stove in your backyard (which would be excellent TBH)
And oven obviously for cakes and casseroles first!
You’ll also need casserole dish, baking sheet, and cake pans
