Around the House

Hosted by Ashley Dawkins
Group active since Tue, Apr 12, 2011

I am a self taught cook-in-training! Please feel free to join the group if you would like to chit-chat about beginners recipes and starting to learn the ropes.

I thought this would be a nice way for everyone to pick up a few tricks of the trade and learn some new things!!

Since I am not a top notch cook (yet) I don't have all the ingredients in my house that a lot of other people do.
It would be neat to see what you have come up with around your home with the average seasonings and tastebuds!!
I usually like to see what I can make without going to the market. It's fun and can lead you to some pretty creative foods.

*Also if you have any NIFTY way to package any treats or set the table, I would love to hear!*

Hope everyone is starting off their week the right way!

I did some meal prepping earlier this afternoon, so now I'm onto planning dinner.

What's going on around here??

I have been eye-balling these Antipasto Skewers and I'm thinking they might be the perfect thing to take to the beach on New Year's Eve!! I love this idea Monica!
