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…
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!
