Sometimes, I see a delicious looking photo accompanied by a complex recipe. Feeling brave, I run to the grocery store to fetch supplies, but come home feeling confounded and uninspired. The truth is, I’m a bad cook who sticks to boxed brownies and frozen pizzas. I’m trying to change that, though! So I present to you: coconut milk, half a jar of speculoos, roughly 1/2 pound cornmeal, and red lentils.
With a little help, your strange and surplus food could be dinner. NPR’s Morning Edition wants to help you Cook Your Cupboard.
