whatcha got cooking


It took me a long time to get into “wifey” mode. We’ve been married for a whole year and B is finally coming home to warm meals on the table…well, on a good night (ok, ok, maybe a few times a week. maybe). Finally, finally I’m starting to enjoy being in the kitchen. Perhaps its because of my cute Antrho apron I get to prance around in, but mainly because I finally found some quick and easy recipes that even I can’t mess up.  Seriously guys, they are the best. And they all come from the recipe book “Our Best Bites.” If you don’t have it, go now. (Or visit their website here.) My mom and I swear by this book. Ahhhh-mazing.

Last night we had homemade pizza (we seriously have it once a week, every week), and boy oh boy was it delicious. You can find the recipe here. And make sure you make the pizza sauce too, it makes all the difference! You’ll never go back to the store bought stuff, ever.

Any recipes that you swear by? Please share!

(P.S. I’ve also been practicing some free lensing techniques, so much fun! Check out the tutorial here.)

    The recipe I swear by is the lemon chicken! It is seriously…AMAZING! It is so easy and it tastes delicious. It's on my blog and Pinterest. Cool pictures (:

  • Meg

    is my favorite. It's so full of carbs & other bad things but it is SO good.

  • Jana

    Homemade pizza is the best! 🙂 And I love that you can make dirty dishes look pretty with your photography skills.

    My default recipes are pasta or tostadas. SO easy for a weeknight and you can literally put anything you want in them/on them.

    I cook usually meals that are meats, but they are my faves:

    Try this: (I love a dump dump – done recipe!)
    Trim 4 chicken breasts. Cut in half and put in 9×13 glass pan.
    In another big bowl, dump the following:
    1 can cream of chicken
    1 can cream of mushroom
    1 can cheddar cheese soup
    1/2 cup minute rice
    2 cans water
    1 box Uncle Ben's long grain wild rice (original)

    Stir together, and dump over chicken in pan. Bake at 350 for 2 hours.

    SOOOOOO good and SOOOOOOO easy. Lots more dump and run recipes. (I'm kinda a collector). If you want some, leave a message on my blog. 🙂

    1 cup milk
