Entering a new chapter….

As I wrote in my post the other day, last night I had a cooking class filmed for a segment that will be shown on a local daytime talk show. It’s going to be all about date night ideas for couples. I am so thankful to the owner of Cool Beans who gave me the … Continue reading

Quinoa! Who knew?

I had no idea quinoa was such a great food. It’s a grain, full of protein, vitamins and minerals essential for our bodies. It’s also tasty and easy to prepare. It’s versatile according to the variety of recipes I’ve found online. Tonight I made quinoa, just plain with nothing but water and salt. It really … Continue reading

Summer means salads

With summer almost here and the spring bringing fresh lettuce to the markets I am thinking of all the salad combinations I can begin making. I’ve already tried my hand with combining hot proteins with cold lettuce and vegetables as well as pasta salads. Around my house we like different combinations of flavors and textures … Continue reading

Kitchen redo and a pork roast

It’s painting time! It’s painting time! (said in a sing-song way) I say that with excitement because we have been in our current home for exactly 16 years and 1 day today and we are just now starting to finally paint the kitchen.

Cooking for IDIC…a day late

But it still counts. So today I ventured into the unknown and made a Bolognese sauce. First I will say this was no more work than my typical pot of marinara sauce, Neapolitan style. In fact it might have been easier, but the taste is decidedly different. And the texture and the look. I did … Continue reading
