Cooking up some new things

I don't know about y'all but I get SO worn out trying to plan meals every week.  I love to cook but it's hard to find new things to cook.  It's complicated for me right now because Scott is on a strict diet and he can only eat certain things and the girls are SUPER picky.

I feel like I cook the same 4 or 5 things week after week after week.

I try to look up new ideas on Pinterest or other blogs.  And then one day I was standing in my kitchen just staring at the pantry trying to think of things to cook when I had an epiphany.  I have always had an obsession with cookbooks. I have a TON of them but I never open them anymore.  And my absolute favorite Cookbooks (and magazine) are Southern Living.  They hardly ever let me down.

So I decided I was going to start opening up my cookbooks and try something new at least 3-4 times a week.  And I decided to keep me accountable - I would just start blogging every thing I tried.

Some of it may be new family favorites and some may be misses and I will blog them all.  I plan to share any winners I find with y'all. Maybe if you are struggling with meal planning - I can give you ideas.

And I will be sharing the sources so if you have the cookbooks or want it - you will know where to find it.  I will mostly be using Southern Living Cookbooks but I may branch out into a few Junior League cookbooks which are my second favorites. Followed by church cookbooks! :-)

Here are a couple of things I have tried recently:

I made this tonight and it was one of the BEST things I have made in a long time!!! It doesn't look so great in the picture but it SO flavorful!  And it makes enough for two pans so we ate one and I froze the other. This would be great to take to a family with a new baby or sick ones. 

I made these last night for our Super Bowl party.  These are the easiest cookies to make and they are SOOOOOOO good. Unfortunately I brought some back home and I can't quit eating them.  They are delicious!

I only have about 5 recipes up so far but I will be adding 3-4 weekly! If you are looking for new ideas - check it out here!
