Those amazeballs were really good!

So I tried that recipe out. I have some things I would change which happens. I would omit the red pepper flakes and the hot sauce. I love it spicy but only my father in law and I ate them. They were amazing like that. But definitely tone down the spicy next time.
Oh, my hubby and I are living in a multi generational home at the moment. So it is a lot of fun. :) I love to experiment with foods and they don't mind being my lab rats. (no offense PETA).
Not sure what the next experiment will be. I forgot to take a pic too! Oh well next time. :)

New recipe, why am I so nervous of you?!?

I found a meatball recipe from this log. And it just sounded so good I had to try.
So it took me about 30 mins to prepare, defrosted frozen beef. I also had two little ones pulling me away. But alas I finished it. But I won't be putting it in the oven for another hour. Was I wrong? Will it taste good? I don't know why but cooking and baking is like being judged while being naked. I need the food I make to taste delicious. It's something that I don't know where it came from. I will update when I know how it tastes :)

Yummy dish tonight!

So I was not sure what I was going to make for supper tonight's. I decided to fry up baby spinach in olive oil, salt and pepper. I also pan fried chicken in vegetable oil and butter, with pepper and sea salt. As a side I had a microwaved baked potato.
It was delicious. I will definitely make it again. It was much healthier than pizza from the pizza shop. I am proud of myself for that. :)
It turned out great, although I was not a fan of cooked spinach. It was okay.
I wish I had taken a photo of my dish. Oh well maybe next time!
What will we have tomorrow. Oh and to top it off I had a yummy smoothie. Fruit and yogurt :) so good.

A Cup of Coffee and a Plate of Ideas

So, last night while I was not getting any sleep from my two little ones, so I started thinking of ideas for my hubby's birthday cake. He is going to be 29 and i want to do something cool for this year :).
Ready for it?? ........ It's an Angry Birds Cake. I have searched high and low and believe I have made the easiest and coolest idea for this. I will take pics and show you during the process soon :)

Mommy is just one job of many!

So it has been a while. I have two little ones now and a fantastic husband! I want to become healthier for our kids and for the both of us.
I've realized once you fall into the pit of buying food from fast food places it becomes all too easy to do it. So from scratch is where I want to go. We have a pasta maker attachment on our new Kitchenaid Mixer (mother in law and I share). So I want to try that. Maybe tomorrow. I was thinking of some yummy ravioli, with spinach and cheese. :)
I will be brainstorming some yummy dishes and seeking some out from the internet and any one wanting to share with me. So go ahead. I may not have anyone reading this but we shall see!

Cooking Adventure: Recipe #2

So I keep saying that I am doing a recipe, than I go to prepare and I change my mind. So i decided: Recipe 195 "Ricotta Pasta with Tomatoes al Forno" on page 171. (365: No Repeats, Rachel Ray. 2005)

So I ended up actually making: "Cottage Cheese Pasta with Tomatoes al Forno" Instead of the Ricotta i used Cottage Cheese, instead of Parmigiano-Reggiano I used Parmasean cheese. Also instead of Crushed tomatoes I used crushed tomatoes. Maybe I will post the recipes. So you can share them. But give credit where credit is due.:)
 I was having a rough day and cooking this recipe helped me out a lot. I will continue this tomorrow though..

Chow for now!

Cooking Adventure: Recipe #1

So i forgot to blog about how the recipe turned out. Well it sorta turned out. It tasted good but i ended up making #222 Oven-Baked Corn Dogs (pg 196).

It was yummy.. aside from the fact that it fell to the sides. I think the hot dogs need to be dried off and less batter on them. I will make them again I just will be careful next time. My 1 and a half year old liked them too. Mostly the hot dogs though.

I will definitely make it again.

Tomorrow I am thinking of making #224 White Pita Pizzas. Hopefully that will turn out better.

Chow :)
