by katerina on July 31, 2007

I have never cooked with fresh artichokes before. They are rather daunting to try and deal with but on Sunday I was hungover and needing a bit of a project. It took me far longer then I am sure it should to prep each one and I don’t think I have the process down yet. […]

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Although these are oatmeal muffins, because of the blueberries they remain sweet and light. Try making these muffins with half whole wheat flour, you will hardly notice a difference. If you are looking for an even lighter, fluffier, cakier muffin try these regular blueberry muffins. I got 5lbs of fresh blueberries last week and ended […]

I find it extremely tiresome to deal with leftovers. I don’t mind taking them for lunch the next day – that’s great, but trying to do something creative with them rather then making what I feel like is a real challenge. And so I am frequently filled with guilt when I throw away moldy unidentifiable […]

A quick pasta dinner, trying to to keep it light because of the heat but still bordering on comfort food. Plus I managed to get it together to post for Presto Pasta over at Once Upon a Feast. This isn’t from a cookbook but is just a combination of two of the things I was […]

Fresh herb bagels to be exact. I was all excited to have the house to myself Saturday night to really get into Harry Potter. But after about 80 pages I found it rather emotionally draining and felt the need to bake. Clearly my emotional attachment to Harry, Hermione and dear Ron is a little unhealthy […]

Chicken and mango are one of those way overdone combinations that you see at every panini bar. However, when you put them together yourself with a perfectly ripe mango and some fresh curry powder you end up with flavours those wannabes are trying to emulate. Plus anything where you add a bunch of cilantro can’t […]

I had some leftover fish I had to use tonight while it was still good so I threw this together with some beautiful looking local cherry tomatoes. This is the first meal I have cooked on a weeknight in quite awhile, because our apartment is just so hot. Plus, foolishly this is a hot meal […]

It is too hot to cook, too hot to even turn on the stove. In fact using the food processor was almost over the edge. At any rate I threw this together to use up things in my pantry, I had a big bag of carrots and a bunch of flat leaf parsley which wasn’t […]

The thing I loved about this vanilla frozen yogurt recipe was that it had a really rich yogurt flavour – so rich it was almost like cream cheese.
