Learning to Cook...

This is not a cooking blog.  If it was, anyone who read this blog would be highly disappointed.  BUT, I did make a pretty edible dinner the other night and thought it was worth mentioning.  

First, I have to admit that back in my single girl days I survived on Lean Cuisines and Special K. But now I have a man to feed.  And apparently they cannot survive on cereal or microwavable meals.  

So, I have officially decided to step it up in the cooking department!  This past Sunday we invited my parents over to join us for dinner.  I tried out the Pioneer Woman’s Grilled Chicken with Lemon Basil Pasta and it was… good!  My dad even had seconds = )  It wasn’t perfect,  but I will go ahead and chalk it up as a win.  The best part of the meal was definitely the wine, conversation and brownies and ice-cream my Mom brought for dessert.   As for my skills in the kitchen, there is always room for improvement... P.S. I am always looking for a good EASY recipe, so if you've got any please send them my way!


  1. I've made that lemon basil pasta before! Had kinda the same reactions... good but not great! But most of her other recipes have been very well received! Try her Penne A La Betsy sometime! It's amazing!!

    1. Thanks you! I will have to give it a try. We live on pasta so I'm always looking for a good recipe!
