When I cook, I don't... follow recipes, per say. For some reason, following directions to a T is very difficult for me. If I find something online, I'll be sure to link it. =)
Over thanksgiving break (yeah, that long ago, sorry!) I had a friend over. We had a little dinner party of sorts.
First, we made a hot spinach and artichoke dip. Only we didn't use the oven and we used asparagus instead of artichokes. I went to the store to look for artichokes, but I didn't know how to eat them! Now I know that artichoke hearts come in cans. This recipe's great! Not healthy at all, but cheap and easy to make party appetizer food.
Next, we made mashed potatoes with onions and mushrooms. It tasted good, but I found that it was a really strange texture. The mashed potatoes were a bit flavorless. After picking out the onions and mushrooms I threw away the mashed potatoes.
