It's not that I can't follow a recipe.
it's not even that I burn stuff regularly.
I know how to make edible food.
But I'm bored with that.
I don't always want to follow the recipe.
I want to be like my Grandma, who can open the pantry, pull out a bunch of seemingly irrelevant stuff and know exactly how to cook it to bring it all together into a fantastic feast.
Plus, looking at Pinterest just makes me a crazy baking-all-the-things-eating-all-the-baked-things loon.
So like I did with my books section, I am going to take you along on this journey and share the recipes I've made and the handy tips I discover along the way. YAY for eating all the things!
Ones that look regular have not been tried.
Most come from blogs, and I've done my best to provide a link to the post in which I found them. *However* If you are a blogger who would rather me link to your homepage or not at all, please leave a comment in the comment section to notify me of this. Or, Just email me here.
Spoonbread -- Bleh. Not a fan. Just ick.
Foil-Wrapped Chicken & Broccoli
Cream Cheese Crockpot Chicken -- I loved this! Parents not crazy about it, but I loved its creamyness and ate it over chips.
Random tips gathered along the way:
-A little powdered coffee creamer added to muffin mix = AWESOME. Adds a bit of sweetness and fluff. Would probably go well in pancake mix too. Any sweet baked pastry-ish thing.
-Add vanilla extract to pancake mix. Just a splash.
