Chard and Garlic Scape Pesto and Things I’m Thinking About (5-6-14)
|Spring has sprung, and I’m rushing the season and thinking about Garlic Scape and Chard Pesto.|
Now on to a few more things I’m thinking about . . .
On Slow Cooker from Scratch, I confessed yesterday that I get lazy and use canned beans. But I’m going to kick the canned bean habit; want to join me?
|Taco Tortilla Stack from Taste and Tell|
We just celebrated Cinco de Mayo, so a lot of drool-worthy Mexican food was showing up on my favorite food blogs, and one thing that knocked my socks off was this Taco Tortilla Stack from Taste and Tell. With low-carb tortillas and light sour cream this could even qualify as a Phase 2 “once-in-a-while-treat; I am so there!
This will probably get some of you going, but Science-Based Medicine just posted an interesting piece on Microwaves and Nutrition. (I do have a microwave and use it pretty regularly. Feel free to disagree in the comments, but keep it respectful please. I believe everyone is entitled to make their own choices on all things related to food.)
|Green Chile and Cheese Egg Muffins|
Often when I’m sharing a favorite recipe on Facebook or Twitter I make a mental note that I don’t especially like the photo, and plan to make it again and take new ones. Sometimes after I’ve thought that about a photo, lots of people will comment on how good it looks and how they want to make it. That happened yesterday with these Green Chile and Cheese Egg Muffins. And I still think it’s not a great photo, but what do I know?
Another Facebook find was 33 Unbelievable Places to Visit Before You Die. Those photos really make me want to start packing my bags!
Which Beatle are you? I’m totally George Harrison; I didn’t need this quiz to tell me that!
And finally, have you ever made Infused Oils? I am intrigued, especially by the Basil Infused Oil.
