I’ve been making a lot of (like three times daily) salads this summer, because it’s been so hot. I typically eat cooked vegetables (spinach and other greens, sweet potatoes and squash, green beans, sweet bell peppers and zucchini are some of my favorite veggies to cook), but this summer I’ve been focusing on raw. This [...]

Just some random kitchen photos from this past weekend. I feel like I’ve had a bit of a dry spell, photography-wise, but that may be changing… I appreciate clean dishes and local fruit and the light in my kitchen.
It’s been steamy again, the last few days. As I write this on Monday night, a hot breeze is stirring the leaves in the tree outside my front room window. Beside me on my desk is a large mason jar full of cold water and lime slices, left over from my supper. The water inside [...]

I wanted to increase my protein consumption without increasing my carbs. Unfortunately there have been several heat waves this summer, which has meant that I’ve been focusing on cooking methods that require the least possible [...]

I’ve also been really fascinated by the long-ish infographics that I’ve seen on Pinterest [...]
I made this sauce / dressing / dip on the weekend, when I didn’t want to eat a bunch of celery chunks plain. I have no clue what the precise amounts of the ingredients are. This is just my best guestimate. I used the leftovers to drizzle on a bowl full of freshly cooked veggies. [...]
Above is a photograph of this month’s red soup. May’s version has one red onion, two red potatoes, one beet, one sweet red pepper, two eggplants, two tomatoes, and a lot of paprika. Yum. Below are some of the vegetable scraps left over from the making of the soup, in my kitchen sink.
