Grilled Chicken and Bacon Sandwich

Not long ago, I bought a book to help me find creative inspiration in cooking. The book, The Flavor Bible, lists ingredients and the flavors that go best with them. I find it a great way to stir up ideas in creating a new dish to try at home.

It was by using my newest tool that I came up with this grilled chicken and

Three Mistakes & a Delicious Chicken Dish

I remember when I was a kid and thought cooking looked fascinating. My mom even bought a children’s cookbook and encouraged me to look through it. One day, I decided to try cooking a recipe from it. I didn’t like it. And that ended my desire to do any sort of cooking. I didn’t try experimenting with new recipes, much less cooking, for another 15 years.  One of the tough lessons you learn when trying out new recipes is that they all don’t work. I had that happen earlier this week with a pork chop recipe. It looked disgusting to
