Unglamorous Meals

IMG_2230I wish I could say that all of my meals look like the ones you see on this blog — all smoky mac and cheese and pretty Pop-tarts –but that would be a lie. Though I do pride myself on being a decent and somewhat adventurous cook, sometimes I either don’t have the money for lots of particular ingredients or the time/willingness to go to the grocery store.

Turkey Day

Because I love Refinery29 and I love you all, I thought I would share this awesome article that offers some great tips for how to cook the basics. Click through the slideshow to learn how to boil an egg, make whip cream, successfully cook a salmon fillet, make veggie stock, and much more. And the adorable graphics make it even more fun. Enjoy!



Hello! My name is Hollis Miller, and I am already surprised that you found your way here.* There are SO many blogs out there, especially cooking blogs (we all gotta eat), so thanks for checking out mine.

My aim here is to try to show that cooking doesn’t have to be a chore – you can have a lot of fun with easy and delicious recipes that are not time-consuming (I’m looking at you, Martha Stewart recipes that always take a minimum of 5 hours). Since I love cooking, eating, and photography, I’ll share my latest sips and noms with you 🙂 and let me know if you hear of any good recipes! I’m always down to try new stuff (get your mind out of the gutter), so send cool recipes my way.

Happy cooking!




*But really, how did you get here?
