Gettin' Comfy in the Kitchen

I have a love hate relationship with the kitchen. Although it is by far my favorite room in most homes and usually is surrounded with good food, great friends and even better wine, I fear the actually use of the kitchen, cooking.

At 22 years old, I am embarrassed to say I do not know how to cook. I have lived on my own for five years and have yet to even attempt to make anything more than pasta and mac n cheese. However, recently I have found that constantly eating out is killing my budget and I would much rather save that money for some new clothes hence my new found adventure of cooking. 

Luckily the BF is a pretty decent cook and he is beginning to show me the basics, I have seemed to master chicken and rice (I will never stop being paranoid that the chicken is not cooked all the way). My co-workers know I am a novice chef and when they see a home cooked meal in the fridge with my name on it they are shocked, yet also inspiring. The girls I work with are pretty kitchen savvy and one has recently inspired me to take a risk with chicken and make this delicious stuffed chicken with Mozzarella and Tomato. It was so amazing and EASY! 

My final product did not look as amazing

The Recipe can be found here! Since I am a beginner I would love to hear some of your easy, relatively healthy recipes I can try!
