Just Call Me Chef!

It is only Wednesday and I feel like I have cooked up a storm! For the last couple of weeks I have not been wanting to cook.  I wanted easy meals with no effort.  And then this week hit, and I was DYING to get in the kitchen and cook!

Monday night was stuffed bell peppers night.  Southwestern stuffed bell peppers to be exact! Seriously beyond yummy.  I have been eating leftovers for lunch and I fall in love again with every meal!

I used this recipe as a guideline.  I omitted the rice from mine because I just didn't want it in my peppers.  Other than that go make this now!

After making the bell peppers, I decided to give baking another shot.  If you remember the last time I tried baking something it ended up as brownie soup.  But I was really craving some cookies and wanted to give these a try.

And I am so glad I did! They were amazing! Oatmeal chocolate chip.  I followed this recipe but used truvia, brown sugar splenda, and almond flour as substitutes.  The roommates loved them and they are just about all gone now!

 And then last night I made dinner for Ashlee and I.  I threw some chicken, one can of corn, one can of black beans, and a jar of salsa into the crockpot that morning.  I then paired that with some quinoa added some cheese and sour cream and was a very happy camper.

I don't know what you would call it but it was pretty yummy!

Now to figure out what to cook for the rest of the week.  Except our fridge is now kinda filled with my leftovers.  I never seem to be able to cook for just one.
