K is for kitchen.
I didn’t enjoy cooking for a long time. When Jake and I first got married he worked second shift and he wasn’t home in the evening during the week. So dinner wasn’t a big deal. We cooked together on the weekend and went out a lot.
Once we moved to North Carolina Jake worked days and we were home together for dinner. So we started cooking. We cooked a lot together and since that went well I started to try more things on my own. We eat a lot of chicken- mostly grilled.
One of our favorite marinades is regular Italian dressing. It is cheap and easy!
Another is. . .
Sticky Garlic Marinade
3 crushed garlic cloves
2 TBSP honey
4 TBSP ketchup
4 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp Dijon mustard or spicy brown mustard
Salt and Pepper
Mix all ingredients together. Marinate 3 or 4 chicken breasts for 30 minutes or longer. Grill, sauté or bake. We marinate in a gallon ziplock bag.

I do enjoy baking more than cooking dinner. Cookies, cakes and pies are much more fun than regular dinner.
