Get out of your comfort zone

When it comes to cooking, we all have things that we stay away from for one reason or another. It’s human nature to stick with what you know. I’ve always kept my distance from:

1) Seafood because, well…it’s seafood.

2) Non-traditional meat because I just have no interest in eating Thumper, Rudolph, or Daffy Duck’s relatives. This category also includes organs and insects for the obvious reasons. 

3) Phyllo because it is so stressful having to work quickly and keep it moist so it doesn’t dry out on you before you’re done using it. 

Well, it’s time to get out of your comfort zone!! As some of my Facebook friends already know, I took my first crack at Baklava yesterday…and it calls for LOTS of phyllo! I will be honest and say that although it is quite time consuming, it wasn’t quite as difficult as I thought it would be. I was pretty proud of myself!

I now challenge all of our followers to get out of your comfort zone and try something new! I think next month I’ll attempt some sort of seafood since my daughter and husband really like it….and I know I’ll never make anything out the #2 category!!! 

Melissa…that would make for a great video!!!
