Where did ya go?

A lot has been going on, but I am back!


Chocolate Hazelnut Cake

This recipe comes from the book Food in the City. The book has "100 cosmopolitan recipes from the 10 most fabulous culinary cities in the world." The recipe I chose comes from Barcelona.

Braised Brisket and Roots

Oh man. This good. That's all I can say. It came from Eating Well in Season: The Farmers' Market Cookbook by Jessie Price and the Editors of Eating Well. It was published in 2009. This meal took a long time to cook, but it was super quick to prepare! It was full of flavor and I will probably make this many more times. It was under the winter recipes part of the book, but that didn't stop me!

Apartment Garden!

I love fresh ingredients! We usually go to the Farmer's Market, but this year I wanted to attempt to grow my own! I went to Home Depot and bought all of the things I needed to do so! Including items to build a shelving unit to hold them! I had no idea what I was doing, but when I got there the employees were so helpful! I told them the basic idea I had for the shelf and they helped me design it. We gathered all of the appropriate materials including wood, a drill, screws and planting items and headed home!

Vegetable & Steak Fajitas with "Killed" Jalapenos (Fail)

This recipe was found in the May 2011 Cooking Light Magazine on page 89. The recipe is fairly simple but I did not care for it all that much. I don't think it had enough flavor. There seemed to be something missing. Although I did not like the meal, I wanted to share the recipe. I think that everything I try (and document) should be shared regardless of if it was a success or not.

Bumper Sticker Magnets!

This isn't a food related post, but it does have to do with the kitchen! I feel like I never have enough magnets on the fridge in the kitchen. We had a few bumper stickers lying around the house that I had wanted to make into magnets. They could be used in the kitchen or put on the back of your car!

Nifty Jars!

I bought jars for $12 at a department store. They were plain and it had no indication on what was inside! I decided to buy sticky chalkboard material and make "signs" for the jars.
