A new hobby...

            Recently I have started cooking a lot of my meals. Partially to be more frugal with my money and partially to be more healthy I rarely even use the microwave except to reheat leftovers. That sentence alone would not have existed in my vocabulary six months ago. I used to eat anything and everything that was microwavable and never had leftovers to eat because I never cooked! Anyways, this cooking of my meals has led me to venture out and try new recipes. A good friend of mine told me of this website www.skinnytaste.com and how all their recipes were easy and healthy! So I've tried a few things from there: such as
Kale Chips

Garlic Roasted Cauliflower w/ Toasted Asaigo Cheese Breadcrumbs
Stuffed Pepper Soup

I have also made things such as lasagna and homemade waffles.  I am not at all trying to say look at what I have done....I just find it amusing (at least to me it is) that I suddenly enjoy cooking and when I get spare time I'm anxious to try find a new recipe to try making. I like seeing (and tasting!) the end results and knowing exactly what I have put into my food that I am eating. Just a new thing I like to do that I thought I'd share..

P.S. the next new thing that needs to follow is collecting these recipes in one spot (:
