What to cook and how to cook it

Today I want to introduce you to the most wonderful and enchanting cookbook I have ever lade eyes on! It's like your own personal cooking coach taking you through every step of the cooking process. The photography in this cook book is what really sold me. There are photographs of everything and for someone who is very visual this revolutionized my idea of cook books.
what to cook and how to cook it

I made their Stuffed Chicken with Tomatoes and Arugula recipe awhile back and it turned out fabulous. Seriously mouth watering.
Unfortunately I burned my hand pretty bad while cooking this dish. Which leads me to the next subject I want to talk about, lavender oil. Did you know lavender oil is a healing oil and it heals burns like no one's business?! I first discovered this when I was doing my friend's hair for her wedding and burned my finger. The wonderful girl doing her makeup told me to put lavender oil on it and it would be feeling better in no time. She even had her mother bring over some for me. I applied it and stuck a band aid over it. By the afternoon my finger was feeling normal again! This stuff is amazing! Go get some at your local health food store you won't regret it next time you have a burn.
P.S. This is the last day to enter The Utmost Jewelry giveaway, so check it out!
