They Don't Call Me "What's Cookin" for Nothing

The Mr. told me I need to try and cook more. He would say this ALL. THE. TIME.  So one day I thought, "Oh, what the hay...let's try this Suzy Homemaker shit out!" Ask and you shall receive. It was like he unleashed a cooking beast inside me that I never knew existed....and it was was ALL bad...and my sweet Mr. ate it all because he knew he had to.  Here are some of my attempts at Master Chef-dom.
  • Runny Egg Homemade Mac & Cheese - Was I even supposed to put egg in there?
  • Burnt Brandy Sauce on Pork Chops - My timing was off on that bad
  • Super Salty Chicken Adobo - "Why am I so thirsty?"
  • On Fuego Black Bean Soup -  So spicy it'll make you sweat...and it did.
After all my attempts, I proudly have three solid recipes in my repertoire.  I knew the Mr. was pleased right away because of the lack of leftovers. So without further adieu, here are my final three:
  • Beef Stroganoff - His Mom's recipe because he called my version, "Different."
  • Fiesta Tacos - Every ingredient found in a Mexican Restaurant all in the crock pot.
  • Fiesta Chili - Fiesta Tacos with chicken broth
These are the meals I now rotate each week and the Mr. has stopped telling me to cook more. Guess "What's Cookin", tonight?
