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.
Hello and Welcome back
Oh my goodness I have been away for the longest time time and I so miss blogging on this blog. I had some personal issues that I had to devote a lot of my time to but, it's taken care of and I am back one hundred percent and I hope you all will start trickling in back. I know over time I will see more and more of you coming to visit me here. I do like interaction so feel free to jot me a line anytime you feel.I just want to say welcome.
Let's get cooking and whatever else we feel like!!
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
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.

Yesterday like any other day I sat wondering what my vegetable of the day should be. I thought of doing carrots, but that's an everyday occurrence. I usually make a carrot, celery and spinach drink in the mornings so I wasn't excited about having it for supper. I, then remember the brussels sprout sitting the cooler that no one want. I for one love the little sprouts and so does my hubby. The children however have declared that they hate brussels sprout and there is nothing I can do to them that will change their minds.
So, I decided and against the children's wishes I MADE THE SPROUTS.
I simple sauteed a handful of sliced mushroom and chopped onion until tender and golden. I then added the Brussels sprout and cover the sauce pan so as to build up steam. I turned the stove down to medium low and added salt and pepper to taste. If there is not enough liquid in the pot add about 2-3 tablespoon water, cook until tender, but crunchy.
The verdict, one child ate tw…
