Sundays at home are usually our downtime. Although, on some occasions there will be a pile of laundry to do, or some vacuuming to be had. Otherwise, it’s all about leisure cooking for me, football games for hubby, and extra computer time for the teen.

We are fortunate enough to receive some organic vegetables from our friend. From fava beans, to various types of squash, to cucumbers, to zucchini. Today I’m excited to share with you a lasagna recipe I’ve never done before using zucchini.

Well, I don’t really know much about this Hawaiian dish…other than I’ve only had Lau Lau a number of times from a chain eatery in shopping malls.  Of course, not knowing what home cooked Lau Lau could possibly taste like; and seldom do I run across authentic Hawaiian food where I live, I decided to just make them myself!

Hangtown fry is a type of omelette made famous during the California Gold Rush in the 1850s. The most common version includes bacon and oysters combined with eggs, and fried together.[1] The dish was invented in Placerville, California, then known as Hangtown.

Then into chairs, we sank to chat about this and that. Slowly, surely, we shared out loud telling stories that made us proud…

Now who wouldn’t love a recipe using only one pan?! And topping it off dining alfresco…

I could never pass up fresh-caught seafood, and there is nothing like wild-caught cockles on hot summer days…

Hello!  Hello!  It’s been a few weeks…  Well today I wanted to share a great recipe for another food trending item: The Pretzel Buns.  I love the texture, and rustic look of this bread.

Improvise, improvise, improvise…I’m big on this when it comes to recipes.  Most times, whilst sitting in my little corner kitchen desk, I’ve already figured out what I am going to cook for tomorrow’s dinner whilst, in my head, prepping the ingredients for tonight’s family meal!  There are thousands, upon thousands of recipes on-line where I gather my ideas from.  Other times, I just turn around to grab one of my cookbooks.  What I love to do, however, is improvise…and this is what I have done with this recipe.

Just a quick recipe share of my favorite way to cook fish!  Bon Appétit…

It’s been a couple of days since our Farm Fresh To You delivery of fresh produce came in.  My son’s school and Farm Fresh To You established a fundraising partnership that enables the school to earn 10% back for each home delivery they get. 

So I am going to make this come out as my first product review for a DIY Butter-Making Kit I recently purchased from Williams-Sonoma online. On their website you will find a section called Agrarian, which basically means supporting a lifestyle of healthy living.  You connect a healthy living by the virtues of homegrown and homemade on your table.  It has become my favourite section on their website, almost to a point that I am on that site everyday just ogling at the many items I would like to have.  In my passion for both shopping and eating, I decided that my first ‘agrarian’ purchase would be easy and no doubt, fun and educational to explore.  This is where the DIY Butter-Making Kit came to play…kitchen play, that is.

Here’s a great recipe to making your own cake mix at home!
