2012 Cooking Project

Happy New Year!

I've decided that I am going to cook a new recipe every week in 2012. I couldn't be more excited about this project - and I'm sure my kitchen will like being used more often!

This week's selection is Citrus-Chili Shrimp.

I have to say that my favorite part of cooking is gathering all the ingredients and snapping a picture - that makes me a dork - but this is all about being real folks.

Does anyone else think that food in the preparation stage can look quite unappetizing?

But in the end, the finished project was yum-yummy! Just the perfect about of sweet and spicy. I'd say this first recipe is a keeper!

My co-worker is creating custom recipe cards for me and the 2012 Cooking project! I'm so blessed to work with such a generous and creative gal.

I hope that everyone's new year is off to a wonderful start! I've got my goals set, and I'm looking forward to 2012!

Live life (and set goals) glamorously,

  1. Ooh that looks yummy! I did that when I was first teaching myself to cook with my new bridal shower recipes- one new recipe a week. They weren't all winners, and I made some funny mistakes along the way, but I got some great go-to recipes out of it:) Good luck!!!
