 Okay so i'm a little embarrassed to admit that i've been married a little over a year
and i can count on one hand (Okay, maybe one and a half) how many
times i have actually cooked dinner for me and my husband.
It's not that i haven't wanted to, it's just a matter of making time.
And since we are constantly traveling to and from a few different
cities each month, i just haven't made it a priority.
When i am home i just want to relax, hang out with friends and Family 
And spend time with Darren. It's also when i get a chance to
work on music. 
Which are all GOOD things.
 But it does get a little expensive
eating out so often!!
 So this year for Christmas i asked Darren for some cook books
and he EAGERLY obliged;) The boy loves food and it's a great
feeling cooking for someone when you know they'll really appreciate it.

These were the ones he picked for me. So cute right? He is
a great gift giver.

Here is what i made from a recipe in the cookbook above. 
It was super easy and tasted delicious as you can tell from the
missing chunk out of the chicken in the picture above.
(I had to taste it you guys!!)
I am no Gwyneth Paltrow over here but i
thought it was preetttyyy tasty. 

Alright, enough about food. 
But food is awesome.

Thanks for reading lovelies!


  1. Oooh, that does look delicious. Can you post a recipe? I've always wanted to roast a chicken.

  2. I love miette! There was one around the corner from the restaurant I worked at in San Francisco. If the recipe for Chocolate Sables is in there you must give them a go, they are to die for!

  3. Love this. I've been married for almost two years and I've fallen in love with cooking. I hope you have fun with it!

  4. I love a good roasted chicken. Yours looks like it came out perfect. Nice job! I love cooking and my hubs loves eating as well. ;) If you're looking for more spots for recipes and a giggle, check out and . I get a lot of my recipes from these girls. Love them. I also love that you have two tea kettles.

  5. That is an awesome selection- I want to try them too!

  6. Yum! That looks super delicious!! :)
