Our Little Nest

I'm linking up today with Chelsea and Stephanie for Kitchenspiration.  
I've been working on becoming more of a domestic housewife, now that I'm a stay-at-home mama/wife, but cooking has never been one of my strong suits.  I kind of find a few simple recipes and make them over & over & over & over & over.  Luckily, Sean is a simple guy and doesn't need anything fancy...he could eat popcorn every night for dinner.  But now that we have a son and are starting a family I would like to step out of my comfort zone a little more. I just know I'll have that son who goes over to his friends house for dinner to eat something like meatloaf and he'll say, "What's that??"  So, I'm going to use this weekly link-up to try and find new recipes, through Pinterest or wherever, and I'm going to set a goal for myself to make at least one new recipe a week.  I should be able to handle that...right?? Ok, so lets get started!

This recipes looks so simple, and I actually have all of the ingredients for this!

I've had some frozen tilapia in my freezer for over a week now.  Sean asked me to get some last time I went to the store...not sure why.  But, now I have a great recipe and I might actually cook it! :)

Not sure if I'll make this or not...we do LOVE Doritos! Have you tried the new Doritos Locos Tacos at Taco Bell?? OMGOSH, they're delicious!! Anyway, back to the topic, I do have all of the ingredients so I may just give it a whirl.

Well, those give me a bit of a jumping off point so hopefully by next Monday I will have tried at least one of these.  Who knows...maybe I'll make all three!

Awww.. I'm sure that you will get the hang of it in no time! I'd be more than happy to share some easy recipes with you! I cook for my parents all the time-- my Mother was not the best cook nor did she cook much so she's always asking me where I learned to cook so well. It's a mystery. There's an awesome website, and she has some great and simple recipes (hundreds of them) that she even provides the shopping list for them. Check it out. I've been sharing it with all my favorite people and cooking with her recipes since I found the site!! XOXO
