“Anyone can cook, but only the fearless can be great.” – Gusteau

If you’ve seen Ratatouille, you know how much of a chef Remy is. Without giving away any spoilers, I’ll say I have thought of him every now and then when it comes to my cooking skills.

While I’m best friends with my food apps, over the past few months I may have ditched the quick ordering and started to cook and bake actual food that tasted great all from home.

Here are the ways I prepared my cooking, according to Remy from Ratatouille.


I decided it was time for me to conquer the kitchen and really hone in on my food skills.

As simple and easy as I thought it may have sounded, I soon realized cooking multiple times a day was a much bigger task than expected.


I quickly realized this required me to learn actual measurements, like how many tablespoons go for each desired recipe…

…and I started to question my new-found temporary career, considering how expensive this was all going to be.


Starting at the strike of 8 a.m., I woke up every day ready to conquer the kitchen.

After all, it was suggested for us to stay in and stop the spread.


Each day became a personal mission to out-cook myself.

And eventually, I decided to become a great food stylist.


I decided to add a pinch of salt. And by a pinch, I mean:


Coconut cream, coconut milk, and EVOO became my best friend.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that.


Food tutorials filled the majority of my screen time.

My Instagram feed became flooded with the newest food hacks and recipes to try.


I decided to really go in and freshen up on my chopping skills…


…and bought new dinnerware for those Instagram-worthy photos.

Did I mention how pricey this was all starting to become?


All while remembering to wash my hands for 30 seconds to make sure I did my part in stopping the spread.


I decided to get real brave and started adding every seasoning I could think of to each cooking dish.

Turmeric, paprika, basil, scallions, sea salt, cane sugar, etc..everything!!


All while deciding to try eating as much food as I could cook, even if it didn’t taste so great.

Burnt cookies, anyone?!


I felt on top of the world and thought I was onto something once it started to smell real good in the kitchen.

After all that cooking, I may have decided to tackle the biggest food challenge that was on everyone’s news feed: sourdough bread.

But ultimately decided not to.


In the end, even if each recipe didn’t end well, I at least did the best I could in challenging myself, given our new circumstance.

And that, my friends, is *Chef’s Kiss.*
