Welcome to Just the Tri-tip!

Hi! Eric here.

Welcome to the site! I’d like to introduce Ryan, Will, and myself. We’re novices in the world of cooking, but we’d like to try and fix that. We are poor college students, as I’m sure 99% of students are, and we’re tired of eating the same old cheap crap! Easy Mac? Blech. McDonald’s? No coronary artery disease for me, please! Chicken in a Biskit? Well I’m still fond of that actually… But no more!

Watch our gradual (hopefully) progression as we strive to eventually make the finest of foods. Beware, there’s probably going to be a lot of things that catch on fire as we delve deep into the anomaly that is the stove… but that’s part of the fun, right? Let’s just hope we stay in the frying pan and not the fire, eh?

As for how this works, each of us will be preparing a dish of the week! Here’s the catch, though. Well, catches. First, there will be a base ingredient that we will all have to use, whether it’s bread, chicken, mushroom, or whatever food item we can think of. Second, we will all be deciding on what the others have to cook. So no picking super easy dishes! As the week progresses, we will announce what the ingredient is, what we will be making, what our steps were, and what the final product looks like… along with a reflection of how we think it went. There will be plenty of pictures and videos too!

Before I forget, hats off to Ryan and Will for coming up with the idea for the blog and the name respectively.

We’ll be starting this madness next week!

We hope you enjoy our journey into what seems like the culinary wilderness beyond. We strive for the day when we will finally be able to say, “I masticated my own tri-tip!”
