Nutrition is not low fat.
It's not low calorie. It's
not being hungry and
feeling deprived. It's
nourishing your body
with real, whole foods
so you are consistently
satisfied and energized
to live life to the fullest.
After all, isn't that what
this life is all about?
was younger I didn't know that
was the correct term, I just knew
I loved cooking and reading
cookbooks just for fun.
I love to cook foods from all
over the world, mostly foods
with a 'kick' as I don't have much
of a sweet tooth, [except for cheese
cake, which I never turn down].
Most recipes I never follow to a
tee, I add, subtract, and change
to suit what I have on hand.
While I am a vegetarian, my family
is not, so each day I cook a wide
range of foods.
This past winter I kind of lost my
groove in the kitchen and fell into
a rut, just cooking the basics in order
not to starve, but nothing that I was
thrilled to prepare.
With the change in the season, the
gardens starting to produce and
inspiration from Heather's class,
I have my spark back and have spent
every day this week playing in the
kitchen with my food.
I wondered if any of you need a spark
to reignite, or perhaps ignite, your food
love? I would like to host a recipe
swap next Friday and share with you
one of my favorite recipes and you
could do the same on your blog, leaving
a comment so we can all visit and
expand our menus, what do you
Today I will share a dish I prepare for
my son who does have a sweet tooth....
