Swear on a stack of bibles, I’m not sucking up to sponsors from Camp Blogaway. We ended our Camp with a HUGE supply of goodies, some ripening quickly. Today, I whipped up lunch in five minutes, made a pretty picture, then sat on the porch swing and savored my fresh Mango Avocado Salad.

Chile-Cheese-Casserole.jpg

Today, I could write flowery “there’s a touch of autumn in the air” prose.  Noooo, this is about cheese. And sour cream. Things suited to be baked up with rice, chilies and hot sauce for a Chile Cheese Pie.

Fresh Beets and Farfalle

This has been a Big Summer o’ Beets. Not complaining; here’s another beet-infused recipe. Honesty, if I tried harder I would find a whole wheat bowtie pasta, but this is DAMN GOOD.  There, I said it – we attempt to eat whole wheat but luv the white stuff. Fresh Beets and Farfalle is a pretty […]

Fresh-Herb-and-Mushroom-Risotto.jpg

My Monday breakfast was leftover Fresh Herb and Mushroom Risotto. And if I hadn’t pigged out this weekend (Temecula… upcoming post), I would have topped this with a poached egg. Leftover risotto makes me as happy as just-prepared. I luv makin’ it and I luv eatin’ it. Today, my challenge to you is to throw […]

There’s this thing out there called Wordless Wednesday. I think food bloggers tire of writing posts, but have some nice food photos to share, so they use Wednesday to get caught up. I like the idea. So, consider this an Almost Wordless Wednesday post. I created this Mushroom, Basil and Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups for […]

Here is last night’s dinner — an adaptation of the easiest recipe imaginable penned by friend Erika of In Erika’s Kitchen. Her Meyer Lemon Spaghetti with Goat Cheese spoke to me. And I hadn’t planned on photographing the meal; I was just interested in eating it. But Larry said, “no, shoot it.”  Wayadaminnit, that’s strange… […]

Andersen’s Pea Soup

Visiting the showstopper Hearst Castle? Blasting thru from LA to SFO? Pull off in Buellton for a bathroom break and incredibly luscious all-you-can-eat split pea soup. I love the […]

By the end of the salad session, we all […]

Lemon Lentils

LemonLentils.jpg

Autumn ~ the automatic trigger for my tummy to crave comfort food. Ordinarily, that means mashed potatoes or mac n’ cheese, but the ol’ hippie in me decided to cook lentils with lemon. Larry scarfed them down, and he doesn’t have an ounce of hippie in him. Lentils are legumes. Cheap eats. No soaking. Nutritional […]

Fresh Onion Soup for One

FrenchOnionSoup.jpg

Not French Onion, FRESH onion. This recipe turned out about a thousand times better than I anticipated, and also rendered a masterful little recipe that serves one. Picture this… you are at the beach house, a solo traveler. By Yourself. ONE person. Who wants to be alone. And who hopefully wants to cook because I […]
