Project 52

Incase you weren't aware, it's 2012. In honor of such a momentous occasion, I am giving myself a little project/challenge. I often feel like I end up cooking the same meals over and over again (and that usually means forgetting favorites because I don't have the recipe memorized), and I have decided this needs to change- enter PROJECT 52. This year, my goal is to make one new recipe a week. It doesn't have to be difficult. It doesn't have to equate to a full meal, but IT HAS TO BE NEW. Sad to admit, but I haven't even started and I'm already behind, but in all fairness to myself, I did just come up with this little idea over the weekend. We start this week, and I'm sooo excited! In addition to my new recipe, I am going to be blogging about each recipe (hopefully with lots of pictures). Anyone care to join me in PROJECT 52?????

A New Year, A New Post

Well, I'm back. I can honestly say that I'm glad to be blogging again, but I also know that these past few months barely allowed for cooking dinner a few nights each week, let alone time for blogging or much else.

In the past four months, we have accomplished the following:
- I graduated from college
- Started my first "big girl" job
- Got the Husband started back to school full time (and he's working full time, isn't he awesome?!?)
- Moved into a new apartment
- Had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends

Yeah, I'd say it's been a FULL four months! And now I'm back! I have several new toys from Christmas and graduation and they shall each make an appearance at some point soon! I'm very excited, can you tell?!?

I've also created a yummy and easy chicken recipe that I can't wait to share! It's got simple, easy to find and inexpensive ingredients and it cooks in the crock pot (my favorite). Once I get some pictures of the process I will post them for an easy step-by-step recipe :)

In the mean time, I hope all is well and you are excited about all 2012 holds!
