Last month I wrote about my hate/hate relationship with cooking. One of the reasons that I don't enjoy cooking is because I'm not very good at it. Which is the same reason I don't like driving or cleaning bathtubs. However, my cooking skillz are getting better and I have high hopes that by the time I am 50 I will no longer have to call my mom to ask her what braising means...or what a scallop is...or if I can come over for dinner.
Anyway, back to me not being good at cooking. Here is a recent example.
Lately I've been making recipes off of the recipe website Our Best Bites. It's great. Not only do they have recipes that taste good and are easy to make, they include pictures to boot. After trying out the Cowboy Quesadillas and the Stuffed Pizza Rolls I was a big, big fan.
But then I tried the Grilled Chicken and Berry Salad and the Chicken Fajitas and I thought "Man, these girls sure love their garlic!" I mean, these meals were garlic-y, to the point where the husband and I couldn't eat them.
Not one to give up easily, I decided to try just one more recipe. This time it was the Tortellini Spinach Bake and I was going to just totally omit the three cloves of garlic that it called for.
