New Feature - What's Cookin' in Laura's Kitchen??

I'm trying to get blogging on a consistent basis (at least a few times a week) so I'm trying to come up with scheduled blog posts, like Half Price Friday. I don't want everything I blog about to be related to my store, because I have a lot more going on than that.

So one other thing that I love is cooking. I'm a HUGE Rachael Ray fanatic. I have I think 8 of her cookbooks and it covers about 90% of the meals I make. I love the originality of the recipes. I love that for the most part they do really take only 30 minutes if you can multitask and seeing as I am always moving and on the go, having 3 pans simmering all at the same time is perfect for me. Her recipes have also made me try a lot of things that I normally wouldn't ... case in point ... last week we made grilled chicken sandwiches with mango chutney and melted brie. Not a typical meal, but it was just fantastic!

So on that note, I'd like to start a new series of blog posts called "What's Cookin' in Laura's Kitchen??". On a normal week, I do all of my PeaPod shopping on Friday or Saturday, which also means that I'm doing my meal planning then too. So I'm going to shoot for posting links to my meals each weekend for you to try out yourself!

As a note, I frequently change the recipes to match what I know I like or don't like. The recipes I include will have all of those changes. It will also be scaled to portions that I'm making, usually it's either just for 2, or for 2 plus intentional leftovers which usually cover lunch for 2-3 days.

This week is an abbreviated version ... but here's what's cookin':
I have a few more to get up, maybe later this week.
Until next time ...

I like your cooking recommendations.

I am a huge fan of Rachael Ray, too - That's putting it mildly. I have most of her cookbooks and I get her magazine and they are always full of so many things I want to try. It almost makes me crazy trying to decide what I want to eat!

I'm a RR Nut! It is so hard to decide what to make, but I love that I can make such a variety of things, I never get bored! Melissa, let me know if you come across any that we should all know about, I'll make a post with your recommendations!
