The Gratitude Challenge: Day Twenty-Two

Day twenty-two:
I'm grateful for my love for cooking. 

I fell in love with cooking in college. To be more accurate, I fell in love with the Food Network in college and that led to cooking. I started with Rachel Ray and her 30-minute meals [very few actually were worth cooking]...upgraded to Giada De Laurentiis [love her recipes!]...and now am picking up recipes from blogs, friends, and family ...basically anywhere I can find a good one! I'm open to try almost anything. Some of my recent adventures include beef stroganoff, sour cream cupcakes, pumpkin cheesecake muffins, and apple cake. I've found a killer banana bread recipe [from my sister's friend, Katie] and also the best lasagna I've had to date. I'm dying to find the perfect recipe card holder thing-a-ma-jig. I found really cute recipe cards at Anthropologie...but they are $14 for 12! That's just crazy to me. I have WAY more than 12 recipes! I'll even take a really cute recipe book where I can jot mine down [must be sturdy, though]. PLEASE tell me if any of you guys have found either one of those that I might like! 

Food Blogs I Love:
Cooking With My Kid
Rookie Cookie [even though she no longer posts]
Any other ones I need to check out?

  1. I'm looking for a cute way to record recipes too. Let me know if you find anything cute!

  2. I absolutely LOVE cooking, as well. I don't do it as often as I should.

    I looooove Food Network during the holidays... I get so many desert ideas! :)
