tried & true.

when it comes to cooking, i'm not very adventurous. i'm not the type of cook who can throw some ingredients together (without a recipe) and have it tastes great. i'm also not the type of cook who can look at a recipe in a cookbook and think "ummm, that sounds good." that's one reason i love food blogs... i can get a good idea of how the recipe turned out, and whether it's worth attempting it. i frequent such foodies and salivate over the pictures and descriptions. they are hard to read without getting hungry. (want to visit a few of my favorites? click HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, & HERE.)

anyway, one of my goals this past year has been to search high & low, sorting through all of my recipes & trying lots of new ones, in an effort to come up with "the list". you know, the list of "tried & true" meals, the ones that never let you down & are always so yummy that you look forward to dinner every night. and although this isn't my complete list of go-to meals, i thought i'd share some of favorites with you, & maybe you'll share your favorites, with us as well!
