When I arrived home from a fantastic trip to San Francisco there was a brand new B0n Appétit sitting ever so patently in the mailbox. The unpacking would have to wait. Magazine reading always comes first, right? Ever since we left the airport I have been racking my brain to come up with new recipes based on the fresh seasonal foods I had on the west coast. With rhubarb season starting I was baffled about how to even attempt to use this fruit, vegetable, plant…uh, what is this red stalk thingy anyway? (upon further research I found it’s an ornamental

Getting back to normal around here very slowly. Forgive me. Between unpacking, my child’s Elmo and raisin obsession, laundry, and waiting for the insurance adjuster to come evaluate the damage from last weeks small tornado that passed through here, I’ve been a little busy. If you’ve been keeping up with us lately, you will know we just returned from Colorado and that means we drove through New Mexico just in time for Hatch Chilie season. I LOVE this time of year because this is when I can say, “Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, it’s fall!” {Thank

roasted chicken

A simple roasted chicken is an easy one pot dish to feed a family or small dinner party. Juicy and tender I make this all of the time when I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. In fact, we’re having it this weekend and opening a bottle of wine because it’s been a loooong week! Simple Roasted Chicken serves 4 to 6 one whole chicken, about 4  to 5 lbs 7 sprigs of fresh thyme 6 garlic cloves, smashed (smash cloves w/ side of large knife and peel) 1 onion 3 turnips 1 lb small new potatoes, about

Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles

0 | March 10, 2010

I stumbled upon this recipe for Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles created by Running With Tweezers at the Tasty Kitchen the other day and knew I had to try it. It had the perfect balance of carbs and protein that the crazy hubby needs for his marathon training. Not to mention it sounded amazing. Made it for lunch today and it tasted just as good as I thought it would be. The only change I made is I used black soba noodles instead of traditional because that is all I had in the pantry. The sauce is a peanut butter base and the

sinful!

Of course you could just sum them up by saying sinful. Simply sinful. These amazing chocolate cookies have a chewy brownie texture with dried cherries and pecans giving an extra tart crunch. Then, then my friends the halo is thrown aside and the horns come out and give you a nice bite of heat. If you wanted to give them a cutesy name call them “angel devil” cookies or “halo horn”

roasted beet salad

Don’t go running away from the computer just yet. Beets are good! Trust me! Just wait and you’ll see… It’s marathon season. Not for me of course, but for my husband. Who is insane. Really. 26.2 miles? That’s the definition of insanity to me. I sometimes think he runs just so he can eat and drink whatever he wants to after a big race. For example after a race this fall in San Antonio he ate two tacos, a massive bowl of tortilla soup, a chicken entre, a cheese enchilada, rice and beans, a basket of chips and washed it

eggs

As the name suggests, this is a quick and healthy breakfast for baby. Mia of course loves it and devours it every time. Why else would I make it so much? This recipe is one for the older baby who is ready for more texture and finger food. For a smoother veggie and egg breakfast for the younger baby check out “Butternut Squash and Egg Breakfast.” Hopefully, you can use this as a starting point for your own egg recipes. Add different veggies, cheeses and whatever you can come up with that your baby can handle! Enjoy! Eggs are an
