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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

easy roasting

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 [...]

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 [...]

healthy-ish cookie bites

Planning to try these cookies out soon.  Just saw them on a blog i’ll need to start following now that  i’m all into this blog-o-sphere.  At least that what B tells me because I keep ignoring him for the 1 person that currently looks at my blog.  Like right now I just finished some late night working when it’s [...]

vegeterian curry in a hurry

December 3, 2012 | Food, Recipes | Permalink

Got home from work late and forgot that I didn’t have many things for dinner.  I made curry and tried to make do with what I had.  Since I was home late, I tried to cook it faster so I boiled the potatoes and carrots, which made the potatoes dry and not as flavorful as i’ve had before.  In [...]
