Cooking Journey

My 2018 new years resolution is to cook one home cooked meal each week.  Cooking and baking have been an interest of mine for a while, but recently with my addiction to the food network I want to turn my interest into a passion.

To prepare for this journey I went through my  Chrissy Teigen and Bobby Flay cookbooks in addition to my various Pinterest boards to organize and determine just what I want to make throughout the year.

While cooking one meal a week seems easy to do, I knew that with my personal and professional travels it was easy to let a week slip, and then another and next thing you know 6 months have gone by and I haven’t cooked a meal. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration, but I did want to follow through with this.

That is where the concept of this blog came to be. I figured I would be able to find a dish every week, and using my boyfriend as a guinea pig, I would teach myself how to cook. I will experiment with making sauces, various meats and maybe throw some baking in there as well. With each meal complete, I would blog about the dish!

I will cover everything from if the meal was easy to make, was it difficult to get all the ingredients, how long it took to make, and if it was good the next day. I always need left overs for the next days lunch! I will also discover what worked, what didn’t and since I am a somewhat picky eater, I may throw in some recipe suggestions along the way.

I did not create any of these recipes. I hope that I will eventually be able to make some recipes of my own, but for now, I am trying to not burn down my kitchen!

So come join me, each week on my kitchen adventure!
