Back to reality

Hello readers,

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter holiday! I want to apologize for the lack of new posts. I was on a family vacation for the past 10 days, driving from MN to TX and back!
It was really great to get out of The same routine for awhile, bond with my family, and see new places. However, my body wasn’t the happiest since we were constantly eating out, not so healthy foods.
I was overjoyed to be able to eat home cooked meals again yesterday. Since it was Easter my boyfriend and I decided to have a brunch together. He had bacon in the oven & whipped up an omelet with fresh veggies inside. I on the other hand was in charge of baking chocolate chip muffins from scratch.
We have made these muffins before, so I’m not sure what happened, but they came out looking like this!

Obviously we weren’t going to eat these because they were charred black in the bottoms. I must not have greased the pan well enough or the oven was too hot from cooking the bacon. Not sure exactly, but I will take the blame. They could have been tasty, the tops of them were anyways.
Today is a new day and I’m not quite sure what’s on the menu this week, but hopefully I will be cooking up tasty foods without failing the recipes. Enjoy your Monday and I will be posting soon.

Happy Cooking!

Stuffed Peppers

image

This was super easy and delicious! Stuffed green peppers (or whatever type you prefer) with a mixture of meat and veggies on the inside!
We mixed ground beef with black beans, corn, cheese, tomatoes, and green chili peppers.
I would recommend it for any summer night paired with an ice cold margarita.
Happy cooking!

Cookies

image

This is what a pan of cookies is supposed to look like right? I guess they were supposed to be 2 inches apart…
Good thing I had a bunch of dough to make up for my mistake.
This is my first attempt at making Mrs Fields style Bacon chocolate chip cookies. They were a lot flatter than I expected. Is there some sort of trick to keep the cookies from flattening out so much?

Happy baking!

Being Resourceful

image

When you find that you’re in a hurry to get to work and all the pots are missing.. I had to figure out a solution. Using a skilled pan to boil my macaroni noodles in. So far so good.

Failed Muffins

image

It said to “just add water” and this is what happened to our chocolate chip muffins! They never expanded. Then we realized that instead of filling up 10 muffin cups, we were only supposed to fill 6 muffin cups.
At least we figured out what we did wrong!

Italian Sunday

image

Today I went out on a limb and decided to cook up some sweet Italian turkey sausage. I added some bow tie noodles, onions and meat sauce. Some garlic toast on the side. It’s a perfect meal for such a snowy Sunday.
Not a fail, my creative kitchen skills are definitely improving!

Never step away from the stove

image

Well, I learned quickly tonight that you shouldn’t turn your back on the stove when its on. I went to cut my tomato slices and the slice of bread missing was charcoal black. I tossed it out before I thought of sharing this experience with you. This is not the first time I’ve done this, yet I find myself in this situation every time thinking ill learn for next time.

Happy Sunday everyone!
