I've never written a blog before.. I never understood the hype of it all. Since I've decided that I'm going to try new things in the kitchen I figured, why not!?

My husband and I had hit a bit of a slump in the kitchen over recent months. A never ending home renovation had left us with little space and means to cook good meals. In other words, we started eating a lot of take out. After much weight gained, two coats of paint, cupboards reinstalled (for the most part) and my oven finally put back, I'm finally back on the right track. I've been using AllRecipes.com for meal ideas and menu planning. I plan to update on a weekly basis, maybe more often, who knows!? I will try to post our menus for the week with a review of the recipes that we used and maybe even some pictures!

I hope that if you're reading this you won't be too critical and that it might help you with your two person cooking too!

I can so relate to rehabbing kitchens and the lousy diet that goes on while the place is out of commission. Enjoy your new kitchen!

Hi, Lynette! I've never understood the "blog" desire, either! Do people get paid for it? Or is it just an overwhelming desire to write? Anyway, I love reading them, so I'm glad you & others want to write them! I am alone, but never cook for "just one". I make the full recipes - nothing better than having leftovers to freeze or give away. It's sometimes nice to have a "night off" from cooking, so your own saved frozen meals can come in very handy! I'm looking forward to more posts from you! Enjoy your journey!
