Since I started working full time about half a year ago, I've had to make lots of changes. My morning routine starts much earlier these days and is completely devoid of caffeine (until I get to my work desk, that is.) I no longer craft for hours on end, nor can I take cat naps multiple times a day. But one thing I really miss is not having the time to research recipes and experiment.
As you already know, I love food. I love looking at food. I love trying new food. And I love making food. Chopping and prepping is fun for me, as is getting in there with my hands and dirtying numerous kitchen towels and aprons. But now, there simply is not enough time between cleaning, reading, blogging, and all that. But I'm still hoping that one day I'll be good enough at keeping on task and prioritizing so I can get back to devoting time to one of my favorite hobbies.
I found these pictures tucked away in my "blog about" folder, but it's been so long since I've made them that I really don't remember the ingredients (I'm awful at documenting recipes), but I do remember them being mighty tasty. I'm posting them as a reminder to try and make time for more homemade deliciousness!
This beautiful and hearty stew would be perfect for a cold day like today. It's loaded with lots of carrots, butternut squash, peppers, and onions, all braised in a luscious Burgundy broth.
A simple yet tasty crustless vegetable quiche is perfect for a light breakfast. Lots of fluffy eggs mixed with multi-colored mini tomatoes, fresh basil, and lots of goat cheese for creaminess.
For dessert or a snack, I want to make this peel away bread again! It's chock full of warm, cinnamon and nutmeg goodness, topped with a warm, sugary maple sauce and chopped almonds. Yum.
