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.
