    Tonight was Cheesesteaks.

    I just love the way the house smells when you saute fresh peppers and onions. Put that on a club roll with some flat steaks and melt some cheese on top, mm mmm good 😊

    I'll make you the best bowl of Reese Puffs

    or Lucky Charms that you have ever had in your life. I could also make you a gourmet peanut butter and jelly sandwich. ^.^...I will probably burn your grilled cheese though after forgetting about it lol.

    Breakfast

    I love cooking. Not like other meals for the day, making breakfast for my kids is like waiting for a surprise to pop up any moment. Morning, during school days, is the hardest time of the day for children. They need to wake up wether they like it or not. Sometimes, they would...

    I used a sweet and smokey rub with a butter sauce marinade. I soaked the steaks in the marinade over night in the fridge. After bringing them to room temperature, I grilled them until medium well. Homemade steak fries seasoned with garlic and herbs. These are just russet...

    We dined in again last night.

    Tenderloin on the grill. Corn on the cob. Sautéed green beans in olive oil with garlic and crushed pepper. Red wine. Sam Smith on Pandora. Perfect relaxing dinner at home. So much better than going out.

    I only started cooking

    for myself a couple years ago, when I went on a co-op in college. I've gotten to like it though. I try to make my own recipes for homemade dishes, and I think I've been pretty successful so far. I like to think my lemon-pepper tilapia, while simple, is a gourmet dish. ;P Now if...

    I like to look for new recipes on the Internet.

    I guess it reflects my crazy life that

    although I like cooking and enjoy it, I don't do it very often. I actually find it quite relaxing at times, especially if it turns out right and then I can eat it. Useful bonus, that ;-)

    The Screaming Turkey~ A Funny Story

    I absolutely adore cooking!

    I get so into it, and when I'm in my cooking zone, I feel like a mini chef. If I have a bad day cooking is my great little outlet; it really gets my mind off any negative types of things. Even though the food I cook generally turns out pretty awful, I still love doing it!

    Curry. If you're an American there's no middle ground. You despise or enjoy it. More than likely if curry evokes a negative reaction you've eaten the day long-simmering glop at the $5.99 all-ya-can-eat luncheon special ("Is that a dirty mop I smell?".)  No, the carefully...
