Diary of a Recipe Addict

Hello.  My name is Megan and I am addicted to recipes.  I love to read cookbooks, cooking blogs, and try new recipes every day of the week.  My family sometimes begs for me to make the same thing that I made before and I often have no idea where I got that recipe/what the heck them are talking about.  So, I have decided to start a blog just about cooking!  I plan to fill my blog  exclusively with recipes that are loved by us (at least those of us with taste buds;P)  Some of my recipes will be healthy (I promise!) others, like the one I blogged about today will most definitely not.  I believe in moderation and occasional indulgences.  If you think you might be interested, please follow me!

Parmesan Garlic Wedges

Well, I see it has been FOREVER since I have been on here again.  Call me crazy, but I am toying with the idea of starting ANOTHER blog.  You know, since I keep up so well with this one?  I am thinking about starting one that is exclusively about cooking.  That way, I can keep things a bit more seperate and people that don't want to look at my food don't have to ;0P I really do LOVE reading cooking blogs, as you can see from my blog list!  I also kind of like the idea of having a blog with just my family favorite recipes.  It would be like a modern day cookbook of my own!

In the spirit of New Years Resolutions, I am going to share a recipe that is pretty darn good for you.  I am sure many of you, like me, are trying to lose a few pounds.  My kids loved these, so I would consider them a definate hit!

Parmesan Garlic Wedges

4 Lg. Russet Potatoes (cut into wedges)
1/2 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
1 Tbsp. olive oil
