Dinner by Kylie


Last week, Kylie said to me “Mom, I want to start making dinner for you and Dad once a month.” Excellent! I thought. It will be great for her to learn to cook and it’s nice that she has the desire to do just that. Kylie will be starting college in the fall. When I was her age, I had absolutely no interest in learning to cook. My how times have changed. Now, I love cooking and there is nothing I enjoy more than entertaining.

Tonight was Kylie’s first time cooking us dinner. She made chicken parmesan, along with a cucumber, tomato, and avocado salad. Kylie made dinner rolls out of biscuits that we had left over from the night we had soup and she finished dinner off with an amazing dessert, which was called Chocolate Peanut Butter Poke cake. Yum!

I’m so proud of Kylie for wanting to learn to cook and making us such a fabulous dinner tonight. Kylie found her recipes on BuzzFeed.com.

Thank you my fabulous daughter for this wonderful treat tonight. I love you!

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
