Believe it or not, I have never cooked chicken drumsticks!!  I don’t know why I thought it would be hard.  It isn’t at all! In fact I found it to be easier than cooking a whole chicken or even chicken breasts!  The best part is that my children LOVE drumsticks.  With a whole chicken, there [...]

Here are the 5 recipes/experiments I’ve tried lately. First let’s discuss salad.

I have a confession to make.  I’m a procrastinator.  I’m totally unorganized.  And sometimes I think I was born that way.

So if you recall on my last blog post, I told you my New Years Resolution is to learn to cook.  And by that I mean mostly meat and vegetables in a healthy way.  While I do know how to cook—my repertoire is limited to things like Easy Chicken Casserole mixed with canned chicken,  sour [...]

  Gorton’s fish is convenient, quick and easy.  I mean you see my stash, right?   But  I’m really getting sick of it.  I’m the only one who will eat it.  Maybe if I knew how to cook fish correctly that would be different.  I’ve tried though.  The problem is I don’t really even know [...]
