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 cheap stove-top 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,
So please, challenge me (in the form of a comment in this post), and I will gladly accept it.
