When I create a recipe TRULY from scratch, and it turns out wonderfully, I am totally beside myself. Having been an avid recipe-follower courtesy of my by-the-book mama, I've never been confident in my abilities to improvise in the kitchen - that is, until I met my husband, the real chef of the home. Over my lifetime of eating more and more healthy foods, I developed a taste for fresher and lighter ingredients and became more confident in my ability to adjust and "fix" recipes. Now I am creating my own totally from scratch, only with a bit of inspiration that lies deep within the crevices of my brain that contain Pinterest photos. Here, my loves, is a recipe that is dressed to impress.
