Though food still makes me "feel" bad, I keep it in the majority of the time, so lately, I've been on a cooking "kick." I never had a tremendous interest in it growing up, but when I actually feel like it, I enjoy getting in the kitchen! ....gasp.
Here are some things I've been making the last couple of months. If it's made from a Pinterest recipe, I'll put the link to it.
Oh, and pardon the cell phone pictures. :)
(more like Orange Chicken, but they call it sweet and sour on the recipe)
Oatmeal Craisin Cookies
(just the oatmeal cookie recipe on the lid of Quaker Oats. Most of the time I replace the raisins for craisins.)
(though the idea was kind of "sparked" from Pinterest, but I didn't have some of the ingredients, so I decided to go-it-alone.)
(Paid a pretty penny for this gnocchi at Target, but it was SO worth it.)
Homemade "Tableside" Guacamole
(just figured out what was in our favorite Mexican restaurants recipe, though I don't believe it was any cheaper than just going to get it... haha.)
(added and took away some ingredients in this one as well, based on what I had)
(my family would call this a "miss" simply because it's just too sweet for us, but I know plenty of people that love it.)
Chicken Fried Rice with Fresh Zucchini and Squash
(this is my husband's Great Aunt Jeanette's recipe.)
(if you can get past the color, and eat it the SAME day (because it turns brown))
Homemade Caprese - fresh mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes. We put ours on toasted french bread.
Here are some things that we've tried, and not taken pictures of:
OMG Chicken (we used sour cream, not mayo)
Mac & Cheese (ridiculous.)
Crock-Pot Lasagna (we used ricotta, not cottage cheese)
Vanilla No-Bake Cookies (miss. too heavy, didn't set up correctly... probably did something wrong)
Crockpot Pineapple Chicken (we put this over rice)
Hopefully we can keep up this whole "cooking at home" thing when baby #2 arrives next month.... hopefully :)
