    How is it that it take

    for ever to go from raw to "nearly done" then a nanosecond to go from "nearly done" to cremated? Plus in that nanosecond, something will always distract you - doorbell, earthquake, overflowing sink etc

    Instead of baked spaghetti,

    tonight's dinner was baked macaroni. It turned out to be just as delicious as baked spaghetti :)

    Roasted turkey breast with almonds served with

    Today's recipe is quite simple

    as it is Walpurgis night. You take out a bottle of white wine, open it and pour into glasses. Then take two frozen pizzas and bake them in the oven. Carry them out onto the balcony and enjoy with good company!

    Tonight's menu is home made meatloaf.

    Yummmm!!! It's remarkable how something I ate when I was young and found so despicable can be so delicious when you make it yourself :)

    Made some honey garlic chicken tonight

    and it came out amazing!!! I am so happy my cousin gave me the idea. The sauce only consisted of chopped garlic, hot sauce and honey boiled together for about 3 minutes and then glazed over baked or fried wings. It is something all should try if you like wings! :)

    Today I made a spinach & mushroom lasagne,

    just on an impulse, without a recipe. It all began with a bag of spinach at the veggie section, on my shopping tour yesterday. It was like "pick *me* today!". So I did. I gathered together some brown mushrooms, fresh green and dry red onions, cream for cooking, and organic...

    I am an Amateur Chef.

    I have worked as a cook in a Casual Dining setting but I know that compared to real chefs I am still very much an amateur. I do plan on changing this one day with Culinary school because I absolutely love to cook. In addition, I've been told by a great deal of people who have...

    Last few nights I've had an unexpected guest

    But hate cleaning so I think I'm going to whip

    up some fancy Thai food, walk into the kitchen, remember what a pain in the *** doing dishes is, and end up eating a can of ravioli. Making my mother proud one processed can of dinner at a time.

    My challenge this year (new yr resolution) has

    been to prepare ALL of our meals without ANY genetically modified ingredients. So far, so good! Now, of course, Jon has eaten at the pub quite often and we've eaten food prepared by others. So, perhaps we've ingested a small amount of gmo. But the amount has been minimal...

    Running low on my monthly budget

    and had to try something that turned out amazing! Brown rice, chicken breast, diced tomatoes in a can, half an onion, one garlic clove, dried black beans and many seasonings including cumin and chili powder. Delish with a little kick!
