Hey Good Lookin' Whatcha Got Cookin'?!

I'm cutting a couple days off since once again things have been crazy and not to plan mainly thanks to me just not putting in the effort. I used this past weekend to catch up on my rest after a long work week and missing out on having the weekend prior. I am tired most days still, but overall… MORE

These were SO good! I've been wanting to try this recipe out for months, and finally got around to it! We had these for dinner yesterday. This is the link to the original recipe (it's a Cooking Light recipe on www.myrecipes.com) and below is how I fixed it. I didn't change much, just the… MORE

A weekend favorite that I haven't made in awhile! Hubby had to drive into Atlanta this morning for an appointment, so I got up a little earlier than I would have liked with the intent to send him off with a good Biscuits & Gravy breakfast since I haven't fixed him one in awhile. My… MORE

I had gotten a couple boxes of reduced fat Cheez-Its that we weren't eating very quickly as snacks, so I decided to try them in a meatloaf recipe. I'd seen a recipe a long time ago where cheese crackers were used instead of breadcrumbs or other crushed crackers and thought it had potential. I… MORE

This is simmering on the stove as I type, though I've snuck enough bites to give it the thumbs up! We received a bunch of kale in last week's Farmer's Market Basket and I have never cooked with kale before, but thought I might try out this recipe with it. When I searched kale as an… MORE

Well, last week didn't go much to plan at all thanks to a few really late nights at work and feeling tired a lot and therefore lazy with pre-packing meals!! So there are a lot of recycled ideas from last week on this week, that I hope I will actually get around to DOING!! :) There was way… MORE

We received a butternut squash in last week's Farmer's Market Basket and I thought this recipe would be a great way to use it! I have been in the mood to bake again anyway, and hubby isn't a big squash fan but I thought even he might change his tune (at least a little) if I could serve him… MORE

Well, it doesn't really have an official name, but that's what I tend to think of it as! I make this every now and then for a hearty weekend breakfast and it just sounded good yesterday! We usually make this with ground sausage, but decided to use canadian bacon yesterday. And most of the… MORE

I have still been making meal plans and following them "loosely" but have not been as committed to sticking to them lately. Not quite sure why, I think its mostly getting more fatigued as the pregnancy continues (I'm 31 weeks on Thursday!!) and finding less energy for packing… MORE

About Me
I love preparing meals for my family, I grew up eating home cooked dinners as a child, and felt that time around the table was very special. It gives me a LOT of pleasure to prepare something my family enjoys!
My favorite things to cook
I cook with a lot of chicken, we prefer boneless, skinless breasts. I don't think I have a preference for a certain style of food, or ethnicity. I cook mainly simple, meat and rice/pasta/potatoes kinds of meals. I enjoy trying different flavors and fixing new recipes. We enjoy italian, southern, mexican, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's sort of a tradition in our house to have biscuits and gravy every weekend, usually Saturday morning. My husband grew up in the South, and it's comfort food! I love preparing a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner: Roast turkey, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and cranberry jelly... MMMMM!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I think I was pretty thrilled with myself the first time I successfully made a home-made pizza crust. I am also very good with homemade breads, and very proud of my banana and lemon poppy seed breads!
My cooking tragedies
I have two classic cooking tragedies from when I had just started cooking (age 16) - the first time was when I tried to thicken gravy by adding flour directly into the HOT liquid - LOTS of clumps... it was SOO gross! The 2nd time was when I tried to make my first white sauce, and I just could NOT get the flour to milk ratio right, it was pasty and disgusting!!! I've learned a lot since then, but those are classic OOPS memories!
