I guess we can say that I am the jack of all trades, master of none. Not that I have not mastered different things in which I have learned to do, I guess I have just yet to commit to one thing that I am good at.
Something that I have always felt defeated by is cooking/baking. I have always struggled in this department due to my lack of patience. I am a get it done kind of girl. I really like to get in, get out and get on with it. I have been trying to learn how to be patient, and the best way is through cooking and baking.
I have decided to pick recipes weekly and try them out, just to see how they turn out. I am someone that struggles to boil pasta, so let’s see how this goes.
My first recipe that I would like to share would be mini panini. This is something I have grown up on, whether it was at one of my nonna’s houses or from the bakery; I thrived on them. I decided to put myself up for the challenge and make these cute little things to see if I could do what nonna did. Although my panini looked quite different, they turned out great for a first timer!
I got the recipe from the Food Network and it happens to be from Emeril Lagasse. I felt like it was best suited for me after reading it. Although it is a recipe for a loaf of bread, I just shaped out little panini, instead of doing one whole loaf.
Two Things To Do With A Fresh Panino
1. Cut it open and drizzle olive oil, sprinkle salt and oregano on it.
2. Grab some fresh ricotta cheese and make a ricotta sandwich.
