This just in: I love to cook. I've always loved to bake, but cooking is a different story. Historically I've thought of it as a hassle/giant inconvenience (a bowl of cereal is just so darn easy). But the more time I spend in the kitchen, the more I enjoy the whole process. Just this week, I even (gasp!) experimented and combined/put my own twist on a couple of Mexican lasagna recipes! And even more amazing than that, I actually found the whole process relaxing. See Mom, I told you I'd grow up someday!
Here are a few of my favorite recipes that I tried last month:
- CROUTONS: I had no idea they were so easy!
- SPINACH & RICOTTA TACOS: These are so simple, healthy and unexpectedly delicious. At least for me. When I found the recipe, they sounded interesting but I wasn't convinced that I'd love 'em. Turns out I do. Enough to cook them twice in one week.
- SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE: A-mazing. As is Elizabeth's blog. You should check it out. And then promptly make this coffee cake. Trust.
