    I'll Do All the Cooking

    I've been cooking virtually my whole life. I come from a family where most of the men know how to cook. I like it so much that I considered going to chef's school. What always stops me is I worry that if it becomes my job then I won't want to do it in my leisure life. I love...

    I cooked boneless chicken thigh filets

    and I made chicken broth and lightly buttered the chicken partway into the cooking process. It is really good. The light butter made the tender, juicy chicken even more tender and juicy. Yum! :)

    So tonight I'm cooking dinner.

    Last few nights I've had an unexpected guest

    and her kids stay over taking over what feels like the whole house. In the past weve always been really competitive where cooking is concerned, but tonight was really different. (maybe we've grown up). We cooked together over a bottle of wine. Pan fried scallops with chorizo and...

    Today I made a spinach & mushroom lasagne,

    just on an impulse, without a recipe. It all began with a bag of spinach at the veggie section, on my shopping tour yesterday. It was like "pick *me* today!". So I did. I gathered together some brown mushrooms, fresh green and dry red onions, cream for cooking, and organic...

    I really never thought I would be saying this,

    being that I had never even touched a stove until me & my boyfriend moved in together. Now that I've been cooking almost every single night, I actually love it!!!

    My challenge this year (new yr resolution) has

    been to prepare ALL of our meals without ANY genetically modified ingredients. So far, so good! Now, of course, Jon has eaten at the pub quite often and we've eaten food prepared by others. So, perhaps we've ingested a small amount of gmo. But the amount has been minimal...

    Running low on my monthly budget

    and had to try something that turned out amazing! Brown rice, chicken breast, diced tomatoes in a can, half an onion, one garlic clove, dried black beans and many seasonings including cumin and chili powder. Delish with a little kick!

    I've been noticing over the past few weeks how

    my body is choosing its diet and my cooking is following suit. This might sound weird, but every since I made the connection with my soul centre, I've found that it has become much more difficult to keep my old diet patterns, and much easier to choose and enjoy foods that my...

    But hate cleaning so I think I'm going to whip

    up some fancy Thai food, walk into the kitchen, remember what a pain in the *** doing dishes is, and end up eating a can of ravioli. Making my mother proud one processed can of dinner at a time.

    Made some honey garlic chicken tonight

    and it came out amazing!!! I am so happy my cousin gave me the idea. The sauce only consisted of chopped garlic, hot sauce and honey boiled together for about 3 minutes and then glazed over baked or fried wings. It is something all should try if you like wings! :)

    I finally found a way to cook Brussel Sprouts

    where I actually like them. Make a marinade of equal parts Balsamic Vinegar and Honey and marinate the Brussel Sprouts for at least an hour. Set the oven to 200C and line a tray with foil. Roast those suckers until tender, turning once. Season and enjoy.
