Let’s Talk Beef…


So I was a vegetarian for four years, which surprises me sometimes.
It wasn’t horrible, but it was kind of a bummer only being able to consider uhm, about 7% of every menu – this excludes veggie friendly restaurants, but let’s be real, I don’t like weird cow food. After I converted back to the land of omnivores, I realized that I am so much healthier now because I am consuming flesh (yes, it sounds vulgar, but come on, its the truth. The first step is admittance).

Anyway, now that I am blessed with living off-campus (yay, house!), I am starting to cook more and more. However, I am horrendous, and am in dire need of some help. I love to ogle over the delicacies on foodgawker, but let’s be real: I am a broke college student with a very limited amount of supplies. That then lead me to perusing supercook, but even then I still manage to struggle. I honestly think cooking appliances may have minds of their own, and decide to rebel against me whenever I want to cook something. No matter; this is why I would adore some public input. Anyone feel free to chime in, even if you are not a broke college student with some simple recipes to share, anything is welcome!

I do however want to only focus on a specific food item every week (or so, whatever tickles my fancy). This way it will be way more realistic; I can go to the grocery store, buy the specific supplies and cook up whatever sounds most appetizing. Feel free to add other ingredients to the main food item, and all ethnic food groups are welcome with open mouths.  I’ll share the results here, but I cannot promise they will be pretty… remember, I am cooking challenged. So, this week let’s talk beef. Pan fry it? Grill it? Bake it? Whatever! Cook on lovelies.

Oh yeah, and here are some of the sites I’ve been scoping out to better my beef cooking knowledge. If you know of any better ones don’t hesitate to share.


Kisses for cows for letting us eat them* (thanks Devyn) - although it is not voluntary.


About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
