What's Kookin with Kim
When Troy and I met, I couldn't cook a thing, and frankly I wasn't that concerned about it. On one of our first dates, Troy said with all seriousness and with great expectations in his eyes, "What are you going to feed me?" I was a little taken a back, but I whipped up one of my favorites...broccoli and cheese flavored rice from a bag. By the second time I served this to him, I got the sneaking suspicion that my cooking skills and menu choices weren't quite what he expected.
So, I got the hint and started to learn to cook. After trying to wing it without success (mac n cheese with the consistency of glue), a coworker introduced me to Taste of Home magazine, and I fed Troy winning recipe after winning recipe. Later, I found Simple & Delicious magazine by the same publisher.
I decided I didn't need to learn the art of gourmet cooking from beginning to end, but I could start with getting a good collection of recipes that my family liked that I could cook well. Over the years I have decided there are enough simple recipes with wonderful home cooking goodness. So, simple cooking with lots of variety became my cooking style. If I can do it with zero cooking knowledge, you can too.
I work full time and find it worth the trouble to cook every night. Nothing seems to make my hubby smile or makes the world aright on a bad day like a good home cooked meal. On this page you will find general updates on what's up with me, musings of my journey as a cook, homemaker, mom, wife, believer and who knows what else. You'll have to check back to find out.
Don't forget to check out the recipe page. Troy built a section for Recipes with links and helps section to help keep all my recipes in one place. When you visit it, you will find some fabulous recipes and other goodies.
