Cooking With GeeJay!: Entering The Potato Salad Zone

*Takes a breath*

Okay, so I have decided to cook. Wait that doesn't sound right. What I mean is this...I have decided to make potato salad for this event coming up. Sounds simple, right? WRONG!

I had told my boyfriend that I wanted to make it since I knew he had a lot on his plate. The problem here is that I don't really cook. I pretty much lived out of the canned food, instant-a ready world.

Alright, so I know what you're thinking. How can she possibly survive for so long? Well, I primarily lived with my mother but I was the lazy kid who never took the time to learn. However, at 30 years old it is rather sad that I don't cook or don't really know how. I have made lasagna in the past, but I haven't made it in years! So I am scared to death that I may have bitten off more than I can chew. In addition, he doesn't know that I don't know how to prepare potato salad. Which is sad in my opinion, but at least I am honest.

It boggles my mind that two people who are so similar can be so different when it comes to something like that. He LOVES to cook and I HATE it. I dread standing in front of a stove/oven making dinner. Why? I just do. I don't like to feel like I am domesticated. I know. It sounds ridiculous. But that's how I feel. On the other hand, a girl's gotta eat, right?

So if any of you who have read my blogs, can you suggest some good potato salad recipes? I really need the help!

  1. Just to give you an update: Shortly after this post was written I confessed to my guy about not being able to make potato salad. He was really nice about it. In fact, he even gave me his recipe and handed me a cookbook to borrow so I can write down some recipes. So, it worked out in the end. :)

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
