Food, love, Life


Seriously, food can make any day better. Good food that is. I’ve never been much of a cook. I could make grilled cheese, premade mac n cheese, and eggs when I went to college and until now. That’s it. I’m 22 almost 23, and I graduated from college last May.

I’m just now learning how to truly cook. I never had the interest to learn or do it before, and honestly, I still don’t like to cook. However, as a mother and fiancé, it’s about time for me to learn. Since graduating college and moving into my fiancé’s house, I’ve learned how to cook all things chicken, make chili in the crock pot, make a pot roast, and yesterday, I did my first attempt at cooking salmon. Yesterday’s meal turned out pretty good too!

I don’t cook every night or even every week like I probably should though. My son is currently in occupational therapy to learn to eat from a spoon and stuff since he’s a bit behind developmentally in that way and working full time is exhausting. I’m truly not sure how my mother or any of you all do it every day and work full time and be parents.

What are your favorite recipes and what should I try to cook next? Leave your suggestions in the comments!

  1. If you like salmon, try salmon
    en ‘croute. It’s really easy and it will probably be the best salmon you will ever have.

    Get some frozen pastry puff dough, let it thaw a little until stretchable, place your salmon fillet in the center of the pastry sheet. Add a little butter, garlic and maybe a splash of lemon then fold everything up into a nicely sealed salmon envelope.

    The pastry dough seals in all the juices and flavor which is great because salmon tends to be dry and lack flavor.

  2. For the work week I love the simple meals like chili, baked chicken breasts, rice and veggies. I think a good thing to have is a great spaghetti and meatball recipe. I’m still trying to perfect mine. The perfect marina sauce recipe has still eluded me 🙂

  3. There are lots of easy recipes on Pinterest. Just type “simple shrimp scampi” or something. That’s what I did when I started. Or do a good service like Sunbasket! That’s even easier!
