As the holiday season approaches, I find myself wanting to attempt new recipes. Please be aware that I do not cook, so the word attempt is very accurate! My friends often laugh because I watch Food Network and know a lot about food. Although I watch several shows, my favorites are those that display creativity, i.e. Chopped and Cutthroat Kitchen.

I love them because they throw challenges at competitors. The chefs that win are always able to create something delicious, no matter what ingredients or circumstances they are forced to cook under. But why? These chefs win because they have mastered the basics. They understand flavor combinations, methods, recipes, and ingredients. Because of this, they can use their skills to overcome challenges and obstacles.

You’ve got to become a master chef, so that when scholarship opportunities are thrown your way, you can mix and create a masterpiece for your committee. Master the basics of good scholarship essays: tell a great story in a way that can easily be read, but uses proper grammar. It really is that simple.
