About this Cook
I grew up with my mom spoiling us with hot meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day so I never really learned even the basics. College brought quite a change--I was too scared to cook so I lived off cereal and frozen foods. When I got engaged, I figured I should start learning and I actually really enjoy it, although I don't have a lot of time between school and work. But I like to think I am getting better!
My favorite things to cook
For now, anything quick and easy that doesn't involve a lot of countertop space. <10 square feet for appliances and prepping foods doesn't go far :) My slower cooker is my favorite appliance since I work nights and my husband doesn't like to wait an hour or two for a hot meal.

Heather's Grilled Salmon
This was AMAZING. I only had the frozen cheap salmon and a Foreman grill. I marinated overnight and this was DELICIOUS, even as leftovers! I might try this on chicken too. Yum!

Pizza Pasta
I was looking for a quick & easy recipe using ground beef. This was perfect!! I love that it only has six ingredients and was still very tasty. I substituted bowtie pasta for rotini (I used about 12 oz.) and onion powder instead of onion (hubby hates onion bits). We both loved it! It was also very filling, and we have a ton of leftovers so I don't have to cook tomorrow night :). Will definitely make again!

Zesty Porcupine Meatballs
These were pretty good, nothing exceptional but I would probably make them again. I made them with spicy sausage--ground beef is a little too bland for my taste buds--and they were pretty good.
