Knives, measuring spoons, mixers...
all of it scared me.
It seemed too difficult to me...kind of like a word problem on a math class used to feel.
Too many numbers, fractions, halves, wholes, cutting, slicing, dicing...
No thank you, sir.
Plus, my husband grew up in a house with parents who owned a restaurant for a period of time. Enter cooking insecurity....and failed attempts to make it appear I knew what I was doing. There was even a night where I legit cried over being unable to cut an avocado...tell me that isn't hard the first time!
But thanks be to Pinterest! It has become my salvation of sorts as I have made my own path in the world of housewifery and home ec 101.
There is a lot of idealism on Pinterest...but there is also a lot of really good food that's makeable, eatable and delicious!
I thought I'd share a few of my favorite "pinteresting" recepies that have been a hit with my husband and also with my limited cooking skills, which have seemed, by all accounts, to take a turn for the best :)
I'd like to also add I baked my first cake last month. I can't lie...it was dang good. I also can't lie again...Chase helped me.
