So, here we go

My first blog post on my newly established cooking blog. I am excited. My goal: to cook 3-4 of her recipes a week.Until I get to 500.YOur mission, if you chose to accept it, is to follow me along on my journey and hopefully gather some tasty tips and recipes along the way.I hope to inspire others to get in their kitchen and cook, because if an idiot like me can do it, then anyone can.It all started several days ago after watching Julie and Julia( I adore Amy Adams by the way). I was soo inspired by the tenacity and the determination of this woman, that I said to my husband "Hey, maybe I should do that". And the rest is history.
Racheal currently has 17 cookbooks in publication, it is my plan to delve my way into most of them, as well as take some recipes straight off her website. I am especially looking forward to Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Meals for Kids: Cooking Rocks! I am still debating on which book I should explore first, so would love some suggestions. For now I am doing her 10 meals under 10 dollars(aka Budget meals) because lets face it, its January, we just got done with the Holidays,and we are budgeting for the year.
My reward for this journey, should I finish(and I plan to) is to purchase myself a new spicerack , perhaps some new pots and pans, and whatever other kitchen accesories I may decide to get.And the smiling faces of my family as they munch and nosh will be a great reward as well.
Lets see what I can cook up

  2. Since I went back to work,I'm finding getting dinner ready is a little harder now. So you bet I'm following along. Plus, I really liked that health top for today. Because I don't feel like exercising after an eight hour day. But I know I have to.

  3. What a great idea for a blog! I did see Julie/Julia and I really liked it. Have fun!
