These are foods that I have been wanting to try but never got the courage. Now that I am trying to switch to a more vegetarian based diet and this is the perfect place to catalog my efforts. Not that I won't be cooking meat, it's just that I am venturing down the veggie path.
Bananas, these creamy, sweet tasting fruit are so delicious any way you have them. I usually have them plain but sometimes when I purchase more than we can consume in the time frame,they get too ripe and I have to make some sort of dessert. Today, I made banana muffins. They were easy to do and came out very moist, I think it's because I didn't mash the bananas smooth but left it a bit chunky and added two tablespoon yogurt.Here goes
Moist Banana Muffins
4 bananas smash to a chunky texture 3/4 cup sugar 1/3 cup melted buttered 2 eggs 2 tbsp plain yogurt 1tsp vanilla 2 tbsp main yogurt 2 cups a.p flour 1tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/8 tsp salt
It's on lazy summer days that my appitte calls for a filling breakfast. You would think that I would want something lite and fruity, but oh no no it has to be pancakes. This has to be my very favorited food to have. If I am feeling down, or if I am happy or even just waking up hungry, pancakes are my go to comfort food. I like all flavors and all textures, but chewy pancakes make me smikle. I know fluffy is the way to pancake heaven, but I can get there doing chewy.
This morning I woke up with my mind on pancakes. I knew i had toi make some and they had to be special. I have been meaning to do a pear and apple combination for a while and there was no better time to do so. This is a pancake lover home and I knew I would have no trouble finding help to eat the goodies, Even the Hubster enjoys a plate of pancakes.
So here we go with: PEAR APPLE PANCAKES with fruit compote
1 cup all-purpose flour
1tsp baking powder
When winter finally step through the door of last season, it is always a celebration to bring the warmer weather in. With this warm weather comes the feeling of revitalization, energy and rebirth. This is when you shedule in time to go through the the things you have accumilated over the pass season and purge the unneccesary items. Donate them to someone that has an immediae use for them.
It is also a time to change out your decor for things that will lift your mood from the pass gloomy months of winter. Put away the flannel sheets and take out the soft colorful cotton ones. Trade in your throws and cushions or lighter versions and don't forget flowers transform any space.
One thing that changes every season and sometimes twice for the season is my table scape. I love beautiful colorful things, but I am also frugal. Having money smarts is what I endorse. Therefore, saving is one of my priorities whenever it's time to spend. This leads me to my Summer Tablescape.

It's been on of those days where you wonder what will be cooking in Reesa'a kitchen. Well, I decided that it was a good day to sautee some chicken and get out the pasta. I have be trying to hold off on pasta for a while, but being a carb-olic makes it darn impossible. So, I have decided to reduce my portions, which has been very hard. Because I love my cooking, it's tasty, very flavorful, where the flavors marry and produce a tantalizing taste to the tongue makes me more than i should. Or, that's what I tell myself.
Well, today I got out a lovely organic chicken breast and seasoned it with my favorite blend of seasons. I t hen, placed the chicken covered, into the refrigerator for two hours. later when I was ready to cook I removed it from the fridge and began sauteing in coconut oil. This
oil is my choikce of oil since it is a medium fatty chain oil, much healthier. I then sauteed vegetables and seve the chicken with pasta and parmesan cheese.
