Cooking Adventures

So, as most people know, i DON'T cook. I like to bake, mainly because I have a huge sweet-tooth, and with the exception of replacing sugar with salt, it is pretty hard to mess up. But cooking, on the other hand, is a very different story. I seem to find a way to ruin any dish I try to create in the kitchen. I believe I have some sort of cooking curse put on me (or at least I hope so), that prevents me from being the next Rachel Ray.

So Nick, bless his heart, ends up cooking most of our meals for us. And not that I'm not grateful, I just want to be equally skilled in that feared area of the house. Not to mention that eating out is a LOT more unhealthy then cooking your meals at home, and more expensive. So I have taken up a resolution to be the chef I've always wanted to be.

The first endeavor was this recipe for Pesto Pizza with Roasted Garlic & Potato, which I found courtesy of StumbleUpon (of course). I know!!! Pizza? Potato? Pesto? Garlic? That is a combination of ALL my favorite things! Don't be alarmed if your mouth starts watering at the sight of this picture:

Alright, so we didn't handmake our dough, and we didn't take the time to create the "Garlic confit" included in the recipe.But, we did at chicken to the recipe, which was a pretty clutch decision. Regardless, it turned out absolutely AMAZING!!!! And the best news is I HELPED!! I sliced and boiled the potatoes, and prepared them for the pizza. Loot at me, I'm growing up! I will keep you updated on our future food endeavors. 

Until next time :)
