If You Can't Stand the Heat, Get Back in the Kitchen

It's been a while since I cooked. I like to blame it on the summer heat, but really it's just pure lack of motivation.  I got tired of eating out and it wasn't helping my body any either.

So, I decided to get my butt in to gear and I start cooking again.  Here are some of my most recent kitchen quests:

All of these recipes came from some of my favorite bloggers.  And they're all easy.  I only do easy in the kitchen.  I would highly recommend making all of these for your family. 

Last night, I did give in to my old ways because I found out the new Panda Express opened and it sounded oh, so good.  
Obviously, our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, but we both left stuffed.

But tonight, I'll be back in the kitchen and I'm actually really excited!

I've discovered foil pack chicken recipes, they're so easy to so good! You just put a chicken breast and whatever ingredients you want in with it, wrap it up and stick it in the oven! Tonight we are having Mexican style - chicken with black beans, diced tomatoes, corn and rice! Yum! But I'm like you... I am much less motivated to cook during the summer.

ranch pork chops!? MMMM!! That sounds delish... and I hate that you posted about Panda! We LOVE that place and after moving to NC from TX couldnt find any near here... until about a month ago we were driving and saw one about 15 minutes from our house!! I'm now ready to scrap the already made dinner and hop over to panda ;) hehe
