i love to cook, but i rarely have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. most weeks i work late two to three days a week, and by the time i get home it’s usually after 8 or 9 p.m. and i’m exhausted. the last thing i want to do is cook. so, we’ve gotten into a dinner rut. we have some quick, easy meals that we make up on the nights i work late.
i feel like a bad wife. i read other women’s blogs and wish i could cook like they do and make all my meals from fresh ingredients. but, i know that it’s hard since i work full time, so i’ve come to accept that. i really need to start coming up with some new meal ideas, though, and planning my weekly meals better.
i love sites like sparkrecipes.com where i can browse hundreds of recipes that are low-calorie and low-fat and find meals that joe and i will both like. i also recently found keyingredient.com, where you can look through recipes and add your own to make digital recipe cards. it’s also a social networking site, which is cool because i love to meet new people. it also offers cookbook printing so users can purchase copies of cookbooks. and, maybe it will make it easier so i won’t lose and forget recipes, like the one for the mocha torte i made for hannukah. sigh. i guess that’s what i get for not putting it in my recipe file. maybe it will be easier to keep and maintain a digital recipe file.
i know a lot of you guys are foodies, so check out this site, and if you join, connect with me so we can be friends! maybe i’ll start blogging about cooking more, especially since this site has a widget that enables you to post these cool recipe cards on your blog.

isn’t that widget too cool? you can click the tabs to see the description, recipe and information about the user. i love sharing recipes with you all, and i love when you all share recipes too. i’ll just need to start taking pictures of what i make more often!
