I Just Felt Like Cookin’

Today was an extremely long day. I had a Dr.’s appointment, and had to turn around and do grocery shopping. Ironically when I got home instead of throwing together something quick and simple I decided to cook. Yes, you read me…I said cook. So for those of you who may be new to the blog, in the past I have been a complete and total cooking #fail. We just don’t go together, our relationship mirrors oil and water, I just don’t like it.

Oddly enough since I have been blogging and come across many different recipes on a daily basis my interest has been peaked, I kind of want to see what all the fuss is about. Quietly..shhhh don’t tell anyone, I think I am beginning to like it *swoon*. Not to mention my blood pressure is through the roof and the Dr. is running tests to see what is going on so eating out is going to be cut down to a minimum until I can get my pressure under control. Tonight we had baked barbecue chicken, homemade macaroni and cheese, baked beans and corn bread muffins. I made sure to leave out the salt although I did use a bit of Kosher salt, from my understanding that is a little bit better. In the coming weeks, I will be on the hunt for low salt, yummy recipes to cook.

Wish me luck on my new hobby and getting this blood pressure under control!!

  1. Don't like cooking? Whaaaaaa??? Well that food looks good for someone who doens't like to cook. Hope it tasted the same!

  2. Looks good! I used to HATE cooking. But cooking shows and good cooking utensils( nice pots, gadgets) make it a whole lot of fun. Plus, I love it when something I make tastes good!

  3. Looks yummy! I love mac n cheese!!!!

    I use sea salt, instead of table salt, only use when I am cooking and I dont add salt to my food after it is cooked. It helped me!

  4. I too am NOT a fan of cooking at all but, can I just say that now I want the recipe to everything you mentioned above. That sounds like a delicious dinner for a family…I need HELP! :0. YUM YUM and good for you!

  5. The food looks yummy!!! I'm so craving some baked chicken right now. Sea salt is great to use. My mom was having problems with her pressure going up and down. We switched her to sea salt and she's been good ever since.

    Also, most of the Food Network shows offer recipes with great flavors that are healthier than eating fast food. Believe it or not, I read my mom's latest Weight Watchers issue and they have some tasty recipes in there too. The best part about it was that they still let you use salt and butter, but pair them will fresh produce and lean meats and oils that are healthier for you. I don't need to watch my weight, but I'm certainly going be swiping her mags for the recipes when I go home. LOL.
