If you know me, or if you’ve ever read my blog According to Kelly, you know that I’m the first to admit that I’m not a gourmet chef. To be perfectly honest, when it comes to cooking, I’m not exactly the “adventurous” type. I’m definitely not the type of gal who can throw a few ingredients together (without a recipe), & have it come out tasting great. & since I’m confessing all of my kitchen secrets, I’m pretty much intimidated by cookbooks – words on a page just aren’t enough for me to imagine how a dish is going to look & taste. That’s one of the reasons I have a complete & total obsession with food blogs. (A few of my favorites? Cafe Johnsonia, Dine & Dish, Picky Palate, Smitten Kitchen, & This Week for Dinner.)
Anyway, one of my on-going goals this past year has been to search high & low, sorting through all of my recipes & trying lots of new ones, in an effort to come up with “the list”. You know… the list of “tried “& true” meals, the ones that never let you down & are always so yummy that you look forward to dinner each & every night. Although this isn’t my complete list of go-to meals, I thought I’d share some of our favorites with, & maybe you will share some of YOUR favorites as well (hint! hint! hint!).
