one good artichoke recipe

May 14, 2013 | Food, Recipes | Permalink

So, we got 3 artichokes from our food co-op basket.  I didn’t know how to cook them but we both like them.  So, I consulted the internets.  We ended up combining a recipe and making our own artichoke concoction.  We tried cooking them 3 different ways, but the best was the one where we cut off the stem, tops, and [...]

restaurant review – la cai noodle house

If you have never had Vietnamese pho you have not lived yet.  I mean, how can delicious broth, thai basil, jalapeños, cabbage, cilantro, bean sprouts, and onions go wrong ? Well, it could potentially but it dosen’t at la cai noodle house.   B&I enjoyed pho a few times this winter, and it is one of the best filling, fresh, [...]

gluten free banana bread vs. banana almond muffins

Tonight we spend the evening at home.  It’s been snowing off and on all day.  We watched shows and cleaned and did laundry.  Not very exciting but was good.  I had 7 bananas that were ripe and in need of being  used.  When it’s cold outside and we are cozy inside I feel like eating warm [...]

I love carrots.  I love eating them cooked.  I love eating them raw.   I am a fan.   I buy the big bags of carrots and add them to lots of things.  Luckily B likes them too. For the past couple years i’ve participated in a food co-op called bountiful baskets pretty consistently.  I [...]

whole wheat banana waffles

Tonight we needed some comfort food for dinner.   Not only is it free-to-the-zing out side but B didn’t have the greatest day.  Sometimes people are lame, nuff said.  So, I decided that we needed some waffles.  He had a singer/songwriter over for a evening session in the studio so I whipped up some of these babies and they [...]

There is just something about winter that makes me want to eat lots of veggies, warm and roasty style.  I’ve been really into roasting lately, it’s easy, its’ filling and I can use whatever I have on hand and it tastes really great. Here is what you do. You cut up whatever veggies you have [...]

I love fondue.  So does B.  But then again, we love most food, as you can tell. We got together with some of my Sibs to eat fondue, and to celebrate my SIL (sis in law’s)  birthday albeit a bit late. I give you fondue friday. We melted choc chips and dipped bananas, strawberries, pretzels, apples, gram crackers and [...]

grilled ham and cheese kinda day

You guys. I forgot to eat lunch today.  So, I was starving and I needed something healthy-ish and free.  My work stocks a break-room so you can always find something, but finding something healthy is sometimes a bit more challenging.   I went with half a grilled ham and cheese and an apple with cheese and another little [...]

whole wheat berry muffins

Growing up in Utah means lots of snow.  Which I love.  My mom would always have warm goodies ready for us when we came in from the cold.  She was awesome like that.  I loved her homeade hot coco recipe, which i’ll have to post on here, and she would often make us muffins on [...]
