Take the Cake: Bite-sized Inspiration for the Savvy Baker

Cooking with Roommates

What’s better than cooking or baking? Cooking or baking with your favorite friend, partner, or roommate!

We’re all busy. Whether we’re working, taking classes, or even trying to catch up on the latest episodes of The Bachelorette, it can be hard to squeeze cooking into our schedules. That’s why you make an event out of it! With a few key ingredients and a little help from our friends at The Room Ring, you will be able to turn an average night into an exciting evening with food and friends.

First thing’s first:

Decide what you want to cook. Salad is always a good starter. As for the main course, try an easy dish like spaghetti or a one-pot pasta bowl. And you’ll need dessert, of course, which is where we come in!

Next, buy the food!

Take the time to visit your local markets that will give you larger portions of food for less money. We recommend buying food earlier in the day so that everything is just within an arm’s reach by the time you are ready to start cooking.

Then, you need people to cook with.

Enlist your roommates to help! If you don’t have one, take a look at The Room Ring, a website that helps you find roommates in the most convenient way possible — through your network of friends. And their networks, too.

Now it is finally time to start cooking.

The best approach to this is to divide and conquer. If it’s just the two of you, one person can work on the salad while the other starts prepping the main course. Then, you can work on making the dessert together.

Get your forks and phones ready!

Once all of the food is prepared, it’s time to eat! But you will probably want to document all of your hard work first, so check out some pointers from our blog on how to photograph your food like a pro.
