I'm just a girl who is passionate about food. It is my personal quest to try to expand my culinary horizons both at home and abroad. However, I was not always passionate about food. I had my epiphany much later when I got my very first job...at a sushi joint here in town. And just like that "Hook, line and sinker"...a foodie was born! I'm a P/T blogger, P/T yogini...but always a foodie.

Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad AKA Birth Control Salad

Caesar salads really are the perfect salad to serve right now. The weather is starting to get nicer, the bbq is done hibernating for the winter and most of all, although I missed posting this on time… April was garlic month. Yes…I said garlic MONTH ← we got to celebrate garlic for an entire month. Don’t believe me? Click here. Maybe … Continue reading

Baby Shower Cake, Jungle punch…and a call-out for photos?

Okay, so I have a confession to make….I didn’t make the cake. But is was cute, and delicious! A big giant shout out goes to Kari from Creative Cakes by Kari for making this awesome and amazing cake (and cupcakes). I especially love the monkey, and the bananas and coconuts are so appropriate. The only problem … Continue reading

I’m still here! Really….I am…

Well hello there! It’s been a while since I have posted anything hasn’t it? Life has been quite crazy lately. I’ve been volunteering my time with a group that supports local charities here in town and there is just less than two months left of my “reign”. I’ve also been “cooking” up a little baby bump. With … Continue reading

What’s in the box – Eleventh Delivery of my CSA from Eagle Creek Farms

Farmer John was at our pickup last week giving us tips and tricks as to what we could do with our veggies (mainly the celery tops). Who knew that these tops could be frozen and added to stocks and soups later on? Unfortunately for us, we were on the road this week and not able to enjoy the … Continue reading

What’s in the box – Tenth Delivery of my CSA from Eagle Creek Farms

I really didn’t know what to expect at this weeks’ pickup. With summer starting to wind down…the sniffles and sneezing starting to kick in, I was really hoping to see the start of some mega loads of beets, and maybe the odd brussels sprout or two. However, Farmer John had other things in store for … Continue reading

What’s in the box – Eighth and Ninth Delivery of my CSA from Eagle Creek Farms

Can anyone enlighten … Continue reading

Cheeesepalooza Challenge #1 (Homemade Whole Milk Ricotta) – is unfortunately a no-go

It’s August and our first challenge for Cheesepalooza is homemade whole milk Ricotta. My only experience with Ricotta is as an ingredient in a meaty, saucy lasagna. This is no joke. So, when I found out what the first challenge was…I thought that this would be an interesting way to get me to actually try Ricotta … Continue reading

What’s in the box – Seventh Delivery of our CSA from Eagle Creek Farms (halfway through)

I took the photo in the car this week. I was afraid that if I left it until after meeting with some friends for dinner, I would have nothing to show you but badly wilted veggies. Thankfully, the car stayed relatively cool and my only casualty was my lovely sunflower. This week, we received Red Potatoes, mixed … Continue reading

What’s in the box – Sixth Delivery of our CSA from Eagle Creek Farms

Last week was a cold one. If I remember correctly, there was a wind and thunderstorm advisory/warning for the area…and let me tell you, it felt like winter was coming. Many of the vendors had packed up and left by the time I arrived to pick up my half-share. We received Kale, Red Potatoes (they are … Continue reading

What’s in the box – Fifth Delivery of our CSA from Eagle Creek Farms

It was another hot day for our 5th pickup. I was quite afraid that I wouldn’t make it in time for my pickup as the trains from downtown were delayed due to some issues with the switch. We sat in the hot, packed train (with no air conditioning – because I was on one of … Continue reading
