It's been three nights since the Home Cooking Challenge came to an end. Let's check in with Megan and get the answers to all your questions, including one from her mother and the one that's been on ALL of your minds.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of cooking challenge posts.
Over the weekend my cooking challenge came to an end. Here's a quick rundown of my experiences from Day 6, with a menu all planned out, and Day 7 with no menu and the instructions to, as Ariel put it, "go off-roading." It resulted in one awesome Star Wars-themed picnic!
Breakfast tacos, ice cream for lunch, freaky onions, and Samuel L. Jackson!? Day 5 of Megan's cooking challenge was one weird ride. And it looks like, according to the video, Megan had never before encountered ginger … until last night. Watch it all unfold!
Megan isn't the only one whose week has been enlightening — I've learned things, too! And with these lessons tucked into my belt, I we set upon Day 6 of the challenge with VIGOR!
I woke up the morning of Day 4 of the Offbeat Home cooking challenge feeling like "hell yeah! I can do this!" I made risotto my bitch yesterday, so I was feeling pretty confident. But BOY was the cooking universe ready to knock me back on my ass in the form of eggs that refuse to summersault, French toast sadness, and macaroni and cheese that was sorely lacking in one important ingredient.
So far this week you've had yummy goat cheese and pear bagels, the quiche from hell, and some food experiences in between. Today, we'll revisit some of the ingredients and techniques you've learned and apply them in new ways.
Results from Day 3 of the Offbeat Home cooking challenge. In which Megan meets hoisin sauce, learns what risotto is, and shows off her smiling paring knife. It was also a magical day in the Finley household because her husband actually ate something other than pizza himself, and makes a pretty adorable video appearance.
Results from Day 2 of the Offbeat Home cooking challenge. In which Megan's day is hijacked by a quiche from hell, and she learns that onions do WAY more than just make you "cry."
