Cooking: At Home

One of my favorite things to do to destress, to reconnect with the Hubs (we love cooking together) and to just have some fun me time is prepare a meal. I love spending time in the kitchen! I know it's often said American's have unhealthy relationships with food, and I do not disagree. I do though know for me personally, I use the act of cooking as a hobby, stress release and the food is just the added bonus at the end.
Sunday Night: Creamy whipped mashed potatoes (with garlic herb butter) and 
red wine & butter sauted mushrooms over grilled lemon chicken. 

Trial and error have lead me to a few great go-to meals, but I love playing around too! Often big ol' belly flops occur, and then you order take-out. But you learned in the process!

Monday Night: Lemon Grilled Chicken over mixed veggi salad. With marinated mozzarella

Do you enjoy cooking? Would you like to see more simple meals (that sound fancier than they really are, Sunday's nights was a breeze to cook!) on the blog?

  1. I'm obsessed with food/cooking/the food network. I'm a lot like you, I've come up with some pretty great go-to's...and I've had some interesting and never-make-it-again results.

    I'd love to see more of your creations on the blog!
