What's cookin' good lookin'?

Does anyone else cringe at those three little words,"What's for Dinner?" I am not a great cook but i do try. I enjoy baking more which is probably why my cookbook,and my butt, is very dessert heavy. I don't mind cooking dinner but it's often a challenge when you have two kids hanging on each leg, no one out there knows what i mean right?:)
Well i think as long as we have to get dinner in the oven every night or hey even dish up Chinese take out, we might as well look cute doing it.
I happened upon this fun Etsy shop that specializes in doing just that. Wonderland Avenue's aprons make me want to spend more time behind the stove. Take a look at just a few of the cute aprons in her shop......

This one matches my kitchen colors, yep it's going on my list of must haves.

And how about a recipe to go along with the cute aprons......
