As of late, it seems the masses have collectively been trying on their chef’s hats. Whether baking bread from scratch, honing in on a pasta recipe, or just mastering the art of scrambling eggs—cooking is at the forefront of newly adopted hobbies.  

If you’re at the point where you’ve mastered the basics and you’re ready to challenge your skillset, we have a few recipes to conquer. Grab your skillet, spatula, and discerning palate and whip up something impressive with these fun recipes.  

INCORPORATE FRESH PASTA INTO SIGNATURE SAUCE 

Once you have perfected the perfect red sauce recipe, it may be time to level up with fresh, homemade pasta made from scratch. This recipe from Bon Appétit marries eggs, flour, olive oil, and kosher salt for a decadent dough that can be molded into any shape and serve as the perfect base for your signature sauce.  

ADD ARTISTIC FLAIR TO FRESH BREAD 

Turn your next loaf into art by incorporating unique scoring techniques into your recipe. These designs from King Arthur Flour add a rustic appeal to your creations and let them double as dinner and décor.  

BAKE AN (ELABORATE) CAKE 

If you’ve been satisfying your sweet tooth with homemade cookies, cupcakes, and other delightful confections, it may be time to level up for the ultimate sugary masterpiece. This malted chocolate drip cake will appeal to your senses and your need for a challenge. Don’t forget to snap a photo before you dive in fork first!  

We can’t wait to see what challenging dishes you whip up while spending more time inside our Wimmer apartments. If you’re in the mood for a different challenge, you can also test your organizational skills with these spring cleaning prep tips.
