Katy Cooks! The Horror.

And you thought Halloween wasn’t for two more months!

Nope, the scares start early, I have been in the kitchen for the past two weeks, and thankfully no hospital visits have happened!

Okay, actually allow me to take this moment to give myself a virtual pat on the back. So far EVERYTHING (from meatballs to cake to lasagna to bread to pot roast) has been quite a success.

It all started when Shane (AKA best gift giver, ever) got me the greatest thing on planet Earth:


A Tiffany Blue Kitchenaid Mixer!

It came with a nifty little recipe book and I have put that to use! But last night’s dinner was Pot Roast and Homemade Bread.

I found this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine, and it turned out amazing. But I think the best part was cooking with Shane. Cooking is fun by yourself, but with someone you love, it’s plain amazing!!



Normally I don’t purchase bottled water, that’s a preparation in case Hurricane Irene does in fact make an appearance!


Before it went into the oven. I promise it looked more appealing afterwards! Though there were no pictures taken, since it took 3 hours to cook, and we were ravenous! :)

The bread may look a little haggard, but I promise you it was AAAAHHHHH-MAZING.


Also, please ignore my nasty hair. I promise I have washed it since… Haha.

Well, that’s all for now, folks.


  1. YAY for your new Kitchen Aid! And in Tiffany Blue too! My favorite color! Also totally love your pots and pans! That blue is perfect. Kudos to you for being such a great little cook! Way to go, girl! :)

  2. Ha I laughed so hard. Your food looks so good. All I can really cook are breakfasty things so when I step foot in the kitchen...things explode ha.

  3. Impressive! I don't cook, but I keep telling my husband I might if I had a sweet KitchenAid!

  4. oh. my. gosh. your mixer is SO CUTE. I think i'll register for it :)

  5. your kitchen aid makes me jealous but the food i mad last night will make you jealous so we are at an impasse!

  6. i want that mixer! i am saving out til i get married and other people will buy it for me :)


Leave Love! It makes my heart happy. :)
