    Yums!

    I wanted to make a dinner that would last a few days for lunches so decided on lasagna!!! Haven't made it in forever and ended up making one for the guys at work too. It was yummy too and I think I'll make it more often and for parties. I do admit I could have spiced it up a...

    Again Tonight.

    My cousin marinated and fried chicken strips, they were sooo good!  I baked sliced potatoes in sour cream and ranch dressing, topped with a thick layer of cheese.  It was delicious.

    The Husband That Makes Dinner!

    It's kind of strange that my parents had 4 children. Three boys and one girl. All of the boys (46,58 & 62) make ALL of the meals in their households while my sister eats a balony sandwich just about every night that she doesn't stop at my parents home for dinner. I jokingly...

    As I was chopping onions

    for a sauce my mother wanted me to make, my eyes started to burn like hell. Usually on tv and in movies, whenever a character is chopping onions, their eyes begin to water and they "cry." Many of my own friends say that they cry as well. But, of course, I don't. Instead, my eyes...

    I Had To.

    My aunt is so used to my uncle doing all the cooking.  She usually forgets to take meat out for dinner.  We got home at 8 and she went to bed, so I went in there and made dinner for my cousins and me.  I made chicken pot pie and green beans cooked in...

    Oh Yeah!

    Cooking is something I do enjoy but just don't have time to do. I'm a really REALLY picky eater so could never be a chef, unless it's a mac n cheese/steak place. LOL So today I spent the day doing not much of anything, something well deserved, and decided that we were having...

    Almost Always Do

    I like to cook.  I enjoy making dinner.  My wife likes to cook too but I don't believe she enjoys it as much as I do.  That's fine because I really like cooking and baking.  She is an excellent help in the kitchen and does cook dinner from time to time but it just has worked...
