Kitchen adventures

I am working my way towards learning to cook one small step at a time! Lauren got me a subscription to the Rachel Ray food magazine for Christmas and it has recently started coming in the mail. The best part of it is that her meals supposedly only take 30 minutes to make (I say supposedly because they don't take into account time for mistakes and near disasters). Anyway, I wanted to do something nice for Chris last week since he was getting home late so I found a recipe that included bacon (one of his favorites)! Anyway, besides the bacon the rest of the recipe sounded healthy-ish. It was bacon-wrapped chicken on top of a lime-flavored salad. I know it was really easy, but I was impressed with myself for trying something new. Shoot, soon I'll be hosting dinner parties! Hah...

ok... so my traditional gift for people when they get married is a recipe book of things I love to cook. However, with the drive and my parents visit you guys got Jacked! Sorry. So maybe I will send you some recipes that I think you will love and are easy. I was not a cook when I got married but after trying many things. And not being afraid to call in for pizza after a flop. I am now good. So keep on trying! H
