I like talking about food, and about cooking in particular. Actually, this became my main premise for meeting new people after immigrating: I guessed that when they’re interested in food, there is a big chance that we might like each other! So I really hope my new Italian food friend will approve of this Oven roasted tomato sauce with bell pepper that I served over pasta.
Waiting for some baked goodiness to cool down enough to eat it, is one of the hardest parts of baking. I’ll keep on dribbling to the kitchen, sniffing up the good aromas, testing if it’s cool enough to cut of a piece, trying to keep in mind these Fruity Oat Bars are completely worth it.
Last Sunday I taught a No Recipes Class. But how does that work, cooking without recipes? Well, you can feel inspired by a nice color combination. Like I was when I came up with this Lavender Peach Dessert!
There are various reasons why you shouldn’t grab for your phone first thing when you wake up.
But if you do, it can give you some inspiration what to cook that night. Like what happened to me last week with Nom Nom Paleo’s Chicken in Lemongrass Coconut Sauce. On her advice I combined it with bok choy: Bok Choy in 2 Soy Sauces that I made up on the go.
What do you do, when you have no inspiration what to cook at all? I mean, when nothing seems to be the right dish for the day? Thankfully, I have a nice repertoire of useful recipes to fall back on, but I must admit, those aren’t my favorite cooking days.
I prefer the days when inspiration flows with every food item I see. Like that day I made up this Turkish chicken stew with lots of veggies.
