This is a blog about food. Now I'm hungry.
I've been trying to do a little variety on the food blog, since seeing dish after dish of just chicken or pork could be boring. Lets see... what is left? Fish or beef. I picked fish for no particular reason other than it sounded tasty to me at that moment.
I dug through my freezer and found a package of salmon I had bought a while back, and set it out to defrost. I then carried on with my day, until I decided to sit down and make out what I was going to do for dinner. Salmon, hmm. Well, lets see what Giada de Laurentiis has to say about that. A while ago I had bought her book "Giada's Family Dinners" and hadn't used it once, so I flipped through it until I saw a reasonably easy salmon dish to do.
I flipped through a few different cookbooks today trying to figure out what I wanted to try cooking for the blog today when I managed to stumble across a cookbook I had bought last year that I hadn't even opened yet. It was from Cuisine at Home again, this cookbook was called "Weeknight Menus". (They really should just put me on their payroll.) The first recipe on the list was "Chicken Parmesan". We have a winner!
Well here it is, my first post on my new food blog. Hopefully things will run smoothly! Basically the point of doing this blog is so people can read about an amateur cook (me!) trying to cook and see what I do right/wrong. I will write out what tips and notes I figure out or have during the cooking process, and hopefully post some pictures that don't come out too badly.So lets begin!
