branching out

one of my goals this year is to branch out a bit as far as recipes go. it's been an interesting process during the last year of cooking for 2. combining tastes and preferences isn't all that easy when you've both created habits during your long single existence.'s been (and continues to be) a process of trial and error to find things we both like.

here are a few of the recent recipes i've tried.

lion house rolls -- so this was the first time i have ever attempted rolls...and i must say, they turned out quite tasty.

pw mashed potatoes -- the last time i made mashed potatoes...not good. so i took the challenge and mastered the mashed potatoes. they were good, but i have a feeling it had more to do with the cream cheese and half and half than me. good, but neither of us have a real love for mashed potatoes, so...these won't be repeated very often.

crock pot pork chops -- these were fine. not fabulous. but fine. i don't think i'll make them again though.

lemon rosemary salmon -- so good. and very pretty. in honor of our engagement anniversary, salmon was on the menu (but no snails this year). we were both quite impressed with this recipe. easy and tasty.

my goal is to try something new each far so good. i'll keep you posted.


  1. hey i have an amazing and easy recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu if you want it... let me know.. it's so yummy on a cold day.

  2. Mmmmm...sounds yummy. Send it on over lady! Miss you jess!

  3. Oh, come on... why no snails!! I drove by there the other day and thought you guys need to come back down so we can eat there again. Can you send me a copy of your salmon recipe? We love salmon... oh, and I heard your rolls were really good!

  4. I am so glad you like the playlist! Also, I thought that your blog was private, so I was so glad to find that you do have a blog I can look at!! I don't know how I missed that!
