Christmas Candy Making

Well, I've gone and done it again; I've made a new tradition or two.  This year I really wanted to try a bunch of new recipes and make them my own, and so far two of them are really big hits!  I have more to make, but I've already made rum/bourbon balls and pumpkin seed brittle.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

There's something about hovering over a baking sheet filled with roasted pumpkins seeds that are still crackling after coming straight out of a hot oven. I pretty much always burn my tongue as I try to eat them as fast as I can. They're the best when they're piping hot!

Dia de los Muertos

I could hear someone sniffing loudly. Spooky enough that we were trying to put scary images on the inside of our window shade for the neighbors to see, but now I was no longer alone! Someone was there.

Mung Bean Sprouts

Let's talk about Korean bibimbap!  Now I'm starving just thinking about it.  Mmmm...crackling rice in the bottom of a hot stone dolsot, with piping hot bulgogi and vegetables topped by a fried egg.  Hot and spicy food for a cold, fall day - I'm in!

Wild Blackberries

Mmmmff, wild blackberry scones...to die for.

Let’s Talk About Maccaroni & Cheese…

I just want to take a moment to talk about Maccaroni & cheese. Most people think of that blue box (Kraft) with the golden Maccaroni that comes out, or - heaven forbid - they think of Velveeta (plastic cheese). I'm not going to really talk about the fact that they are both processed, I really just want to talk about flavor; actually, the lack thereof, when it comes to store-bought mac & cheese.

Egg Foo Yung

I thought I would share a picture of the egg foo yung. It was scarfed in nano seconds. The rest will end up in the husband's lunch box.

Bok Choy + Eggs = Egg Foo Yung

It was time to harvest some bok choy. I think I will grow some bean sprouts so we can make egg foo yung.
