One of my goals this year is to cook more. I was pretty proud of myself for getting the macaroni and cheese right last year. Hopefully this year I have more success when it comes to cooking.
Since I’m not a natural cook, I need to go by specific measurements. Unlike my husband who cooks on the fly and just goes by flavor and instinct.
I’ve got a few chicken recipes to try that I got from Bounty Fresh and hopefully they turn out well.
