Let's Eat!

Yesterday was TheCount and my one month anniversary :) I love to celebrate anything so now that we're married I'm starting the month celebrations all over again. When TheCount got home from work I had fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and homemade hot chocolate waiting for him. He ate that while I cooked dinner and he watched t.v. Y'all let me tell you about that meal I cooked :) Oh my goodness! I took pictures, but since I'm emailing this blog in from work, I can't post them now. I made Sesame Chicken. The recipe came from the Everyday Cooking Blog by Darius T. Williams (again, can't link it because this is an email). This dude right here is tha truth! He said the recipe was easy, he didn't lie. He said it was good, again, he didn't lie. A word of advice would be to make sure you have all the ingredients before cooking. Don't try to make sesame chicken without sesame oil or sesame seeds. A certain blogger **coughmecough** thought that would be a good idea. I'm glad before I got back in the house from running errands I had a surge of brain power that reminded me that SESAME chicken probably needed at least sesame oil, lol.
 
Anyway, I made that paired with a salad (lettuce, cucumbers, broccoli, carrots, Parmesan cheese). My baby came in there while I was cooking and was looking at all the stuff I had out and I'm sure he thought this would be another disastrous creation. Let tell y'all some of the stuff he said during our meal:
 
"Oh my God baby, this is so good"
"How you make this? Is this honey?" (No honey was in it FYI)
"Ummm, you should, like, make this and take it places"
"Noooo don't tell yo' momma about this. Keep this as your secret weapon."
"If we weren't married I'd ask you to marry me off this one."
 
I'm not lying it was that freaking good. We both took it for lunch today. I have another recipe from the Everyday Cooking blog that I'm going to try tomorrow, Macaroni and Cheese (my sister and my favorite food). I'm trying to find my staple recipes for things we like so I can have an arsenal of good food at my disposal. Then we can have dinner parties and maybe even host a holiday event! We made macaroni and cheese a couple of weeks ago but it was Paula Deen's recipe and I thought my arteries were going to clog from just one spoonful of that butter, egg, and cheese mixture (really Paula, sometimes you take it a bit too far!). Anyway, if you're looking to cook a meal that everybody will love get that Sesame Chicken recipe from Darius' blog.
 
Anybody have any special recipes they want to share with me? I love cooking! I love eating even more!

Well now - aint' this the truth! I'm sooo glad you tried the Sesame Chicken recipe. What's sooo funny is that you don't think it'll taste good from the recipe, right? LIke - the ingredients look like crap. But it's something about that cornstarch and chicken stock - I just can't explain it. BUT, that's what gives the dish the flava!

Keep on cookin!!!!
