I love tomatoes! And I love creamy soups! So it really figures that one of my favorite soups of all time is tomato bisque. I used to go buy tomato bisque from Safeway (they make a pretty good tomato bisque) whenever I had the hankering, but now I know how to make it, which is way better because all the Safeways on my end of town closed down this year.

When I talk to people about cooking, most of the time it seems to me that the people who say they don’t know how to cook don’t really need recipes, they need skills. Feeling the need to pull out a detailed set of instructions (which is what a recipe is) every time you cook is cumbersome and discouraging, but with a few basic skills you can throw together a meal without much thought. It’s that kind of thing that people are looking for when they say they want to learn how to cook.
