As an engineer, I love solving problems and coming up with creative solutions for problems in front of me. That’s why I love whenever people give me food challenges. For instance, the Dark Chocolate Lemon Truffles are a recipe that came out of a challenge posed from one of my roommates. One day he challenged me to come up with a lemon pie covered in chocolate; therefore, I gave him a crunchy chocolate dessert infused with citrus flavors.
The reason I tell this story is that another of my friends who currently lives in France (hi Rachel!) has given me a challenge to come up with a cheapÂ stove-topÂ or microwave recipe that uses ingredients readily available to her. From this I came up with an idea.
Give me conditions such as:
- dietary restrictions
- tool restrictions
- inexperience with cooking
- flavors you love
- food budget
and I will accept your culinary challenge. I will create a recipe you’ll love that meet the restrictions you give me. Now, I’m sure you’re asking “What happens if he fails?”. My response to you is that if I do, by some crazy circumstance, fail then I will present you with a surprise that will be sure to satisfy and make up for my defeat.
So please, challenge me (in the form of a comment in this post), and I will gladly accept it.
