You don’t have to be a chef to make amazing meals. Following recipes is quite simple, it just takes practice!! I am a busy mom of 2 who doesn’t have much time to cook during the week, so I make up for it on weekends! Why is my blog called Fridaynightgourmet? Because Friday is my favorite day of the week. After a long week of work and kids sports/homework/etc. I CANNOT wait to sit back on Friday night with a glass (or 3) of good wine and a fabulous meal!! I much prefer staying in on Friday night than going out. I’ve been cooking for many years, but have only been cooking “amazing” meals for the past year. I was so tired of eating the same crap every week that I decided each weekend I would cook 1-2 totally new meals. I’ve really enjoyed it and I am pretty sure my guests have also!! 🙂
I work from home on Fridays so if you don’t, you may not have time on Friday to prepare some of these meals. I usually do the prep in the morning if it’s a crock pot meal or during lunch for a dutch oven meal. Meals that require much of the prep time while cooking I will do on Sat or Sun (I will let you know how much prep time each meal takes). I know there are a lot of people out there who are not great cooks (or don’t think they can be) and don’t have a lot of experience with elaborate meals. I am hoping this blog helps you get more comfortable with that – I will re-word complicated recipes to make them easier to understand. You CAN make amazing meals, I promise!
