Nothing beats trying to have to create (quite literally) something from nothing!  It's just my husband and I and we can live on what's in our pantry for weeks so after a while we enjoy getting creating with the ingredients that remain.  Tonight we realized that we could clear our… MORE

About this Cook
My new husband and I (est. 6.20.09) both love to cook. But between two full time jobs, long commutes and an old Vermont home that has to be babied along until we can dive into the remodel, we both struggle to find the time or the energy. During the week, it is more about survival than enjoyment - the struggle to come up with something when you're tired and hungry is insane! Luckily, with some help from Allrecipes and some clever thought on my part, I realized that spending 30 minutes meal-planning the Sunday before the long workweek is the way to go. When we're not cooking, working, or spending time on home updates we love playing with our dog Bella and our cat Kodi, gardening, skiing, and hiking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook chicken chili because it is just SO good. Also chicken marsala (from Allrecipes) as it is SUCH an easy recipe and always turns out fabulous.
My cooking triumphs
Lately I created the perfect meatball! Mine had always turned out dry and flavorless so I was pretty psyched. :)
My cooking tragedies
I struggle to have success with my breadmaker. Argh!

Quick Pickled Jalapeno Rings
What an awesome recipe! I had a ton of jalapenos in my garden and I didn't know what to do with them. This recipe came up in a Google search. I love the slight sweetness they have - I will never buy store bought pickled jalapenos again... these were wonderful and so easy! Thank you for sharing!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad
A wonderful salad for a nice summer evening! I added additional vegetables (chopped tomatoes, diced carrots, etc) and could have easily left out the chicken if I wanted to make this even quicker. Perfect!

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze
I made this for dinner a few nights ago - it was quite easy and absolutely delicious! Our grill is put away for the winter so I pan fried it to brown the exterior of the pork and baked it for about 20 minutes at 350 F. YUM!
