So, in case you haven’t read any of my previous posts, I’ll let you in on my BIG SECRET. I don’t spend all my days in the kitchen producing the slowest of slow food while wearing heels and single strand of pearls. Mostly my foodie designation means I like to eat. Okay, I sometimes like to cook, but the reality is that most of my days are filled with lots of time-consuming things that take place outside the kitchen. At the end of those days, I still like to eat. Preferably something tasty. Is my foodie card revoked?
Welcome fellow foodie author Heather Thurmeier to the blog. Heather assures me that I can still eat yummy meals even if my kitchen time is limited and she’s brought a tasty recipe to prove it. Don’t forget to check out Heather’s latest release, Pinch of Me, Dash of You.
I’m all about easy food. I wish I could say it was only that way when I’m on deadline and strapped for time, but the truth is, I cook easy meals all the time. Why? Because I’m a terrible cook. Surprised?
I know, I know! I can already hear you asking… How can a self-proclaimed terrible cook write a foodie romance? Let’s just say there’s a reason why Kali—the heroine of Pinch of Me, Dash of You—can’t cook to save her life! She gets her cooking inability from me…
How did I write a book full of food? Easy (LOL!), I watch a ton of cooking shows! I know the lingo and am familiar with how to cook different things, or what items might go well together on a plate. But when it comes to feeding my family, I kinda suck. I need meals that are fast, kid friendly, screw-up proof, and tasty, which is why I LOVE my CROCKPOT!!! There is seriously no better kitchen invention. Well, except maybe my Margarita Machine, because a kitchen without margaritas is like a cookie without chocolate chips. Not cool.
So here’s one of my super quick and easy meals that I like to make on my daughter’s figure skating nights when we’re at the rink for hours and get home without any time to fix a hot meal.
