I haven't been doing much blogging lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been cooking. I tested out the Angel Food Cake with Mango Sauce and it was delicious. I had to use frozen mangos due to the time of year and living in McCall, but it was quite tasty. The second was Chicken-Mushroom Quesadillas, again it was quite tasty. Truly there's only been one recipe that was just so-so thus far, but there are so many yet to try! The problem is narrowing it down to which one first...

Not catsup, but catch up! I haven't been very good about blogging lately, but that doesn't mean I haven't been cooking. I have tested several new recipes from So Easy and they are still so easy! The first was Tri-pepper Steak. I was a little worried about this one as Travis doesn't like peppers, but much to my surprise he loved it. And I quote "(she) makes nasty green things taste delicious."
Second was a first attempt at cooking shrimp. I believe the recipe called for pre cooked shrimp, but there was a sale on fresh shrimp at the store so I decided to try something new and learn to shell, devein and cook shrimp. I didn't quite have all the ingredients the recipe called for, so I shall have to try it again sometime and perhaps with pre shelled shrimp!
Third was a berry cobbler. Simple and delicious.
I think that's all for now. Happy cooking!

Recipe number two is down and I can't say that it impressed me as much as the first one. It was just okay and I probably won't be making it again anytime too soon. But as Nana says "it fills the holes" and now I am one recipe closer to cooking through the whole book!

Not a very creative name for my first recipe, but the taste far surpassed the name. Pork and Beans will definitely be a make again recipe. And so easy, too! I guess I should have expected that, though, from a cookbook entitled So Easy! And to round out the meal I made corn bread muffins and a spinach salad. I love cooking!
I was contemplating yesterday whether or not I had to follow to recipe exactly for it to count as having made it. But after much thought I decided, no, that would not be necessary. If I did it that way it would take away a lot of the fun of it, and if it's not fun then really, what's the point? Therefore, substitutions will be allowed. However, if the afore mentioned substitutions are so immense the recipe becomes completely unrecognizable or the substitutions were poorly chosen and the recipe tastes bad then the recipe shall remain on the list of ones yet to be tried. That is my consenssus.
