Recipes!

Let me start by saying that I'm not a good cook and I don't do it very often. Therefore, one of my goals for 2012 is to experiment with new recipes and try to cook a meal a couple times a week. I've cooked more in the last few months than I ever have, but it's still not very often. Most of the recipes I've tried are ones that I found on Pinterest. They required very few ingredients and were very easy to follow. All of them turned out great....and that is an accomplishment for me. I've included pictures of the dishes made and links to the recipes if you're interested in trying them. There are many more recipes on Pinterest that I need to try and I'll keep you updated as I make them. Photo source: Recipe Bridge
