I’m not a great cook by any means, but lately I love being in the kitchen more than I ever have. I think it has something (everything) to do with having someone else to cook for who (I think) appreciates it a little more than Olive appreciates me pouring food in her bowl.
I firmly believe that brunch is the most important meal ever – and my favorite – but I’ve also been trying to give dinner the attention it deserves when I need to make more than a bowl of cereal to qualify as “dinner.” I’m not great at creating my own recipes since I’m (mostly) a terrible cook but I can read a recipe like its my job and I think its worked out pretty well the last couple of months.
I’m hoping I will branch out and try new recipes and if I find or create anything good, I will have to post them here to save for future reference. The last time I had a blog, I wrote down a white chicken chili soup that I can no longer recreate just because I didn’t save the blog post, so clearly I need to save things here, even if its just for myself to come back to later.

|The pasta from chicken parm made the heart on my plate and I just couldn’t not take a picture…|
Because I am really corny and have a story for everything, I could’ve probably saved all of these pictures of some of our recent dinners and make posts about all of them and go on and on about the story behind them all, but I’ll spare you on a couple of my favorites from the last few weeks.
