I have been on a baking/cooking spree! And it maybe Pinterests’ fault! I love to bake and cook and all those recipes just waiting to get pinned to my YUM board (could I be a bigger dork!), drive me to put on my apron (why yes, yes I could), pull out my Kitchen Aid, and get crackin’.
Since I joined Pinterest, I have pinned over 200 recipes to my YUM board and I have another board for all those fruity alcoholic libations. I don’t even drink mixed drinks. I guess they are for just in case I start throwing garden parties with Martha Stewart. WTH Pinterest?!?
It would look just like this. Except, I would hope to have guests at my party.
I have always liked to create in the kitchen. It all started with my Dad way back in the day. He would let me help make sauce or bake cookies. I have such great memories of being in the kitchen with him and I want my kids to have the same great memories. Plus, I don’t want them to think food comes from a box or a take-out menu. Besides, look at these faces….they are loving life!
|I'm going to make this this week!|
I will say, that thanks to Pinterest, I have found an awesome blog with a million recipes, which I am steadily making my way through. If you haven’t been on Skinnytaste.com, you are missing out. If the photographs of the food aren’t enough to get you in the kitchen, you should know the recipes are easy and I have yet to be disappointed!
My favorite recipe so far was the Chipolte Lime Rice. It was fantastic! My husband, who is a rice purist (he loves it plain with a dash or 20 of soy sauce) loved this rice. This week I am going to make this...
|Chicken and Mushrooms in Garlic Wine Sauce|
|These were strawberry banana with spinach and flax. They boys couldn't even tell!|
Here is to good eating! Salute!
What is your favorite memory of being in the kitchen as a kid?
