I don't plan on starting a food blog

"Love Pearls" by Helge Kirchberger

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you may have caught some references to my culinary adventures as of late. I'm currently teaching myself how to cook, and am finding I absolutely love cooking and baking. However, there is definitely a reason I am a fashion blogger and not a food blogger. Tonight's cooking fun is a good example of why.

Having planned my meal ahead of time, asparagus-stuffed chicken, I took my chicken breast out of the freezer last night so that when I got home to make dinner tonight, it would be thawed. Turns out it wasn't fully thawed, so after cutting it halfway through the middle, I put it back in a little baggie and put it in warmish water to thaw it the rest of the way while I prepped the vegetables.

After the chicken was thawed, I finished putting together the chicken dish, filling the centre with shredded parmesan cheese and asparagus, and then tossed it in the oven while I boiled the sweet potato. (A typical multitasker, I was also toasting some oats for my breakfast tomorrow, and since I was just winging it, I burnt the first batch. Ooops!)

The final, and primary reason why I should not be a food blogger? My food photography skills SUCK. My finished meal photo, below, makes it look like I had a mountain of mashed sweet potatoes, when really the portion was much more reasonable. 

All of that said, it turned out wonderfully, and was a fantastic meal! The recipe I used as a guideline is here

...And if you would like to look at a cooking blog that provides both excellent recipes, fabulous anecdotes and beautiful pictures, I recommend checking out Smitten Kitchen!
