There’s an exciting announcement coming on Monday!
You may recall that two weekends ago I was planning to make 5 Barefoot Contessa recipes over the course of the weekend. These included two cookie recipe as well as a full meal, BC style.
Well, the cookies were baked without a hitch. They were well-received by my family, friends, and co-workers. You can read about those recipes here and here. But like many things in life, the goal of knocking out a total of five recipes over just two days proved to be a little more difficult than I originally thought.
When it came time for to begin cooking dinner at my friend’s house, things started off decently. I wasn’t able to follow the chicken recipe to the T since I couldn’t find boneless chicken breasts with the skin on. Instead, I just bought regular boneless, skinless chicken and butterflied them before stuffing them with the goat cheese and basil.
There was a lot of action going on in the kitchen. A few pots on the stove, the chicken in the oven, watching the pasta, talking to my friend, etc. And that’s when it happened! I sliced by finger.
Granted it wasn’t a major cut by any means. Probably slightly worse than a standard papercut. But still, it caused the flow of the evening to change. I wasn’t able to take photos of the completed recipes, and to be honest, I kind of ended up deviating from the recipes as written.
I decided I’m not going to count these three recipes as completed. At some point, I’ll make them for real.
So, I only made two recipes that weekend not five. *sigh*
Starting this week, I am going to try to return to cooking each Friday for my family. But, as usual, the first and largest task of them is deciding what to make…..
There has been so much going on over the last few days! Luckily though, I’ve been able to get some recipes in and will be posting about them next week!
This Friday begins a new chapter in our lives — 2021.
For many of us, the new year will bring hope and joy after a difficult 2020.
Normally on New Year’s Day, my family and I would be gathering at my aunt and uncle’s house to have Cornish game hens, stuffing, a plethora of side dishes, and amazingly tasty desserts made by my grandmother.
That isn’t going to happen this year.
Instead, I will be cooking for my immediate family.Continue reading “How I’m Ringing In 2021”
My name is Ryan and I have decided to go on a food journey.
“A food journey?” you ask. What kind of food journey?
Well….Continue reading “Hello and Welcome!”
No, not the SNL skit.
This weekend I made one Ina recipe. A soup. It was wonderful and very Fall-themed. I will be sharing my review later this week! Stay tuned!!
