Our Best Bites

Do you have any cooking disaster secrets?
I do………..like the time I put in the peeling from the garlic clove in the chili instead of the clove……..I didn’t know. I thought that was the good part………I know….what can I say? Now had this blog been around way back when I didn’t know about garlic cloves, I would have had a much better chili.

Yummy Recipes

Kate and Sarah with Our Best Bites has a very user friendly cooking blog. I’m a visual learner, so all their recipe great photos of each step keeps me calm and confident that I too can make whatever delicious meal they’ve posted.
I also want to thank them for becoming one of my sponsors.

As mentioned, their site is very user friendly. They have a link for Tips and Tutorials……….God love’m. In fact they have a soft spot for cooks like me because they even have a HOW TO for garlic…….see. our best bites crushing garlicThis could have saved me years of ridicule………my friend Marla still laughs at me. If she could see me now…….I even have a garlic press………and the jumbo size jar of chopped garlic in the fridge.

I LOVE seeing all the ingredients needed for a recipe. I don’t know why, but it takes the “too hard” factor out of it.
