Thanks for visiting my site! This is my journal containing all the adventures of a true kitchen nut. With my obsession of all things kitchen-related, there’s sure to be something of interest for you!About ChefUp until a few years ago, I’d always had flops in the kitchen. The cookies never spread right; the cakes always domed; the chicken was too dry, etc. (sound familiar? I’ve spend the last several years doing all sorts of research and self-improvement. Cooking and baking used to be a survival tool, now it has become my life’s passion.I’ve learned how to make no-fail juicy, tender meats; perfect vegetables; cakes that don’t dome; perfect breads, etc. Each day I set out to learn something new, and bring it to y’all.
