My Favorite Recipes

 I've never really been much of a cook. In college, I was a BIG fan of ramen noodles and box meals. Cheap and easy was my mantra!  When I moved to NY I ordered take-out for every meal (mostly because mac & cheese was 6 bucks a box and I aint doin it.)

It wasn't until I moved in with my boyfriend that I realized how much fun cooking could be.  He is an avid cooker and had been for many years before we met, so I was pleasantly surprised when our first date included him cooking a stuffed pork loin with all the fixin's.

Fast forward 3 years and I can confidently say that Dave and I could put Hello Fresh to shame. At least 4 days a week we're in the kitchen for dinner and you better believe we do it up right on Saturday mornings! 

About 6 months into our relationship I realized that we needed a place to keep all our recipes. But not just a notebook for an ingredients list, that's a bit too boring for how we like to cook. Our kitchen extravaganzas usually involve the neighbors, a 12 pack and A LOT of laughs! I wanted something that was going to be just as fun, a place I could record all the fun memories we have cooking and grilling and roasting pig butts on the spit. Thus the Kitchen Memory Keeper was born~

Now every time I flip to a recipe I'm reminded of where it came from and when we first made it, and how many times we messed it up before perfecting it!

Now on to the recipes! There are really too many to pick from so I'll keep it short and sweet. The first recipe is the first dinner my boyfriend and I cooked together, and the second recipe is a staple that got me through college- Super easy to make and pretty cheap! You can substitute the homemade spaghetti sauce for canned stuff for greater ease and less cost.
