Ok, Ok, I cheat
I know I am not the best cook in the world. In fact I could just about screw up any recipe and that includes how to make Koolaid and coffee! So my idol is Sandra Lee from the Food Network's Semi-homemade show. Not only does she make great food, but she cuts a lot of corners to make things easier to make and harder to mess up on. The other night I made Manicotti, with fat-free ricotta cheese of course, but I used an Aldi brand sauce. I mean who has time to make their own? I was so excited to tell Grandma Bea what I made until she asked what kinda of sauce I used, immediately I felt like a failure lol. I was embarrassed to tell the queen of cooking that I cheated and used store bought gravy. Never-the-less, the Manicotti was delicious and I can still be proud of it, however, I am curious to know if anyone takes the long, often times more difficult, route when cooking. Let me know if I am not the only "cheater".
