Last Sunday I started my adventures in cooking. I made 55 cupcakes for Isabelle's birthday from scratch using Martha Stewart's recipe for Yellow Butter Cupcakes and One Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes. I also made the buttercream frosting using her recipe. They turned out pretty good. The yellow cupcakes were pretty dense and rich, and I am not sure if they are supposed to be that way or not!!
This week I have already done a new entree and will do my dessert tomorrow.
Last night for dinner I made Almond Dijon Chicken.
I loathe touching raw chicken and so I try very hard to avoid making dinners that involve chicken. I also can't grill and don't like to pan fry chicken, so if I do make chicken it tends to be baked. This chicken was SUPER easy and pretty tasty. Even Isabelle ate some!
My dessert tomorrow is a warm lemon cake. I will let you know how it goes. It looks delicious and I can't imagine a cake tasting bad, but who knows.
I am rather optimistic about my commitment to making one new dinner and one new dessert each week. I have already planned what we are having next week and I am looking forward to cooking. Now to get started on sewing!
