It’s confession time! Yay!! If you are going to be my best friend you need to know one thing about me. I don’t enjoy cooking, & if we are really getting into things, I don’t enjoy baking either. It’s not my thing. Never has been. However, eating is one of my favorite things to do in life. You do the math. But on that note, I do get down in the kitchen once in a while to cook & bake. I didn’t say I was a BAD cook, I just don’t enjoy it. When you are not passionate about something, like cooking, it’s easy to mess up. The other day I was cooking a large dinner that required me to do one dish at a time because of temperature settings. I had a furniture painting project I was working on in the garage, a DIY project in the front bedroom I was working on, & a blog post that I was writing in the living room. All at the same time. That’s how I roll, of course. Between the second and last dish, I re-set the temperature setting from dish number one. I placed dish number 2 in the oven & left to get on with my other projects. I must have gotten lost in my painting because the next thing I know the smoke alarm is going off. Fail. Needless to say we didn’t have dish number 2, but dish number 1 was still delicious. Reason #967 why I need a double range: because of my cooking A.D.D.
I do enjoy being in the kitchen & cooking when the recipe is meaningful to me. There is one recipe in particular that I love making. It’s been a favorite of mine since I was little & my mom would make it for me. It’s her yam Souffle recipe & to me, it’s comfort food. This recipe has quickly become a favorite of everyone who knows me, as well. It’s the dish I get asked to make the most for others, so I thought I would share it with you! It is easily the best yam souffle recipe ever! When I am in the kitchen I like the baking & cooking to be quick & easy. I have thought about sharing some of my favorite recipes on the blog with you, & this one is a great place to start.
As many of you already know, we are planning out and re-doing our home in Michigan to move into in a year when Mr. LMB gets out of the military. We are trying to plan our kitchen around the fact that I don’t like to spend a ton of time in the kitchen, which means we want our appliances to be really efficient & fit our needs. One thing we have been looking into is a GE Appliances double oven range. A double oven range would allow me to cook and bake all of my food at once & get out of the kitchen as quickly and efficiently as possible. Happy wife, happy family, & full tummies. Since we already have all GE Appliances in our North Carolina home & I love them all, we feel safe with going with GE Appliances for our Michigan house. I love the efficiency & the fact that for someone who doesn’t love to be in the kitchen very long, GE Appliances are easy to use. Even I’m not intimidated by the fact that I am not a professional chef. Sorry hubs! Fun fact: Mr. LMB is an amazing cook. He’s a pro at the grill & can whip up any recipe in the kitchen. Score! I am so excited to get into our new home in Michigan & get our new appliances. I may even spend more time in the kitchen because I like them so much 😉 GE Appliances spends countless hours studying consumer insight about appliances – looking to improve the design & functionality of each one. See how your kitchen can be reimagined with GE Appliances!
