I grew up not knowing anything about cooking. My mother is the queen of take out or going out, so it was normal for me to not be in the kitchen much. I picked up this Real Simple cookbook at Fresh Market the other day because the pizza on the cover caught my eye. My mom and I decide we’d start cooking a recipe from the book every night. We have been starting from scratch, making lists for the grocery store, and carefully following the steps. Believe it or not, we have actually been successful! By no means does this mean I'm adding a food section to this blog, but I am pretty impressed with myself and actually enjoy cooking. Here is the recipe I followed for the roasted chicken dish. Enjoy!
