Food Phobias: An Esculent Trip Through the Trimesters (Plus a Recipe: Pregnant Lady Chicken Biscuits)

Posted on Oct 5, 2014 in Blog, food porn, life, offspring | 4 Comments

The emotional/mental pregnancy trip has manifested itself in me in interesting ways. I wouldn’t say I’ve been “nesting” (no more than normal, anyway) or “ooing” and “aahhing” over “cute” baby things. My trip with food has been a bit of a roller coaster, though. I started off first trimester feeling ill, mostly induced by dehydration […]

Presto Pesto on the Cheap

Posted on Aug 18, 2014 in Blog, food porn | No Comments

I’ve been loving pesto lately! Fresh basil is one of those really expensive items at the grocery store. Now that we have a porch for the first time in a long time, we picked up 2 basil plants near the end of the season for cheap, and they’ve been growing like wild ever since! This […]

Plantain Tortillas and Some Lovely Topping Options

Plantain tortillas: slightly sweet, wonderfully soft yet stable texture, and incredibly easy to make. Blake whipped these up quickly, and we can’t wait to try them out again with other toppings! They work perfectly as a soft taco shell, but I’m sure we could find many other uses for this mixture, as well. It’s very […]

3 Bean Vegetarian “Burgers”

Posted on Jul 12, 2014 in Blog, food porn | No Comments

It’s Blake’s ultimate plan to go completely vegan at some point in the future. Food politics aside–although we both see reason in a variety of aspects of why to not eat animal products in terms of cruelty, sustainability, and so on–it is important for him to watch his animal fat intake due to a history […]

Lime Cilantro… Cookies?

Posted on Mar 18, 2013 in food porn, life | One Comment

Blake gets positively sad when there aren’t cookies about the house so that he can have one before bedtime. We’ve been traveling so much (everywhere from Ann Arbor to New Orleans, and we’re off to Milwaukee tomorrow!) that I haven’t had much of a chance for baking. I decided to jump on it today before […]

Baked Eggs in a Rutabaga and Sauerkraut Nest

Posted on Feb 26, 2013 in food porn | No Comments

These days, I’ve been focusing on my art-making, playing catch-up with various projects, and *gasp* being a “housewife.” The term is repulsive to me. No offense to y’all, but without kids at home, I want a serious full-time, work-my-pants-off job. Even with kids I want that. It’s just my personality. Blake’s gonna be a better […]

Miniature Birthday Cake

Posted on Nov 19, 2012 in food porn | No Comments

It was Blake’s birthday yesterday (insert confetti here.) Since we’ve both been so busy, Blake wanted to wait until we go to Georgia for Thanksgiving to really celebrate. But I felt it wasn’t right to go through one’s birthday–even a something+1 birthday that is not twenty+1, the only fun one–without a bit of cake or […]

Garlic Cauliflower Puree with Greek Yogurt: A Dip, A Soup, A Sauce and Mashed Potatoes All in One!

Posted on Oct 28, 2012 in food porn | No Comments

Cauliflower is in season! And it will last us through the winter. One of my favorite vegetables–and so easy to prepare! There are lots of ways to steam, stir fry, boil and bake it to perfection, but the most versatile cooking method is to steam and then puree it. Through subtle variations in the mixture, […]
