A Lazy Sunday Morning with French Toast…

October 3rd, 2010

I love cooking… yep, I know, that’s a shock!  I cooked a delicious dinner yesterday for my friends…

It was going to be for the third round of Project Food Blog but unfortunately I didn’t make it…but no matter, I cooked anyway. It was a lovely day of chopping, dicing, simmering, stirring, tasting, relaxing… I loved it!

Dinner turned out great… although I’m exhausted so you will have to wait on the photographs and recipes… This morning I made some delicious Challah French Toast from A Homemade Life… a cookbook that I’ve enjoyed reading and will soon give you a review…

Also, up soon is a giveaway.  I really appreciate everyone’s support for me for Project Food Blog and want to hold a giveaway as a thank you… so please, stay tuned!

Finally, I didn’t make the Pear-Maple Cobblers for Project Pastry Queen this weekend. However, please check out Pink Parsley for the recipe and visit the Project Pastry Queen page to see how the other bloggers did.

So, now, back to my coffee… Have a great relaxing Sunday!

Green Curry for Dinner… yum!

Cooking Light…in the Summer’s Heat…

July 11th, 2010


For the record, I am having a wonderful summer. I love my job! I love being back in DC! I love seeing Juan almost every day! having time to cook! hanging out with friend! reading for fun! oh, the list goes on and on…

however, last week it was brutally hot… now, having grown up in NC, I do know a thing or two about being hot but… it was oppressive…especially when there is no AC on the metro (I have about a 45 minute ride)… I did not want to cook at all… but my sister was coming up and I promised dinner… ugh!

Resa pulled through with a number of suggestions from Cooking Light that were fresh, delicious and light… perfect for the summer heat!

We made Grilled Chicken with Cucumber- Melon Salsa and Chocolate-Amaretti Peaches for dessert. The salsa was amazing. The melons were so ripe that it was unnecessary to add any agave nectar. The peaches did not disappoint- it was a perfect dessert.  I only used about a tablespoon of butter and we found them to still be delicious!  Overall, a very refreshing dinner!
