The Beginning....

I have written a starter two or three times now, posted, then deleted on a later date. Basically, I'm not good at this blog stuff. But I also am not looking to blow anyone's socks off with a blog. I'm mainly starting one because I've had quite a few friends and family members tell me I should start a blog and post stuff regarding my cooking, baking, etc.  I figure, hey, maybe it will be a good way to keep track of all that. After all, I am constantly taking photos of anything I make in the kitchen, anything I've ordered from somewhere that blows my mind (or is plated super pretty!) and other various things that catch my attention. I'm also always trying out new recipes! I love it.
Therefore, this is my attempt at making my friends and family happy. Especially Micala, my brother's beautiful wife. She's mentioned a few times that I should start a blog and seems to like the things I have created in the kitchen that I post on my personal Facebook page. Although we are far from each other (me being Oregon and her in Texas), I truly appreciate the support. Even if she ends up being the only one I get it from.
I will be posting photos, recipes, my experiences in the kitchen, favorite sites, health information that I find interesting. Pretty much a lot of food related things.So cheers! To the beginning...

Freezer nomz!

No recipes or photos to post today, but just wanted to write something to get back into the habit!
Today was a short day at work so i decided to come home and make up some noms. I'm preparing some dishes specifically to freeze for my boyfriend's kids. They come on the weekends and i like to make some foods in advance so that my boyfriend can utilize his time with them and not have to worry about cooking. With four kids it can be slightly daunting to have to worry about "what's for dinner?" So, i try to help him out. Today i made a couple pizza pasta casseroles. I already popped them in the freezer and now i'm going through the pantry and pulling out some things to throw into the crockpot for a vegan chili. Then before they come for the weekend i'll bake up some cornbread for them to have with it. Last time i made it i grated up a couple zucchinis to hide in there since the kids don't love all veggies. So i figure sneaking some in there never hurts. Pl…

Lettuce Wraps

A great light lunch or snack, lettuce wraps are so versatile, tasty and not to mention, super easy to put together. You can use any of your favorite veggies, sprinkle on some of your favorite seeds, add any fresh herbs your heart desires, top with some dried cranberries and add any dressing that satisfies your taste buds. Really, you can make them so many different ways! Plus you're getting tons of great nutrients from all of the raw veggies.

What I have written below is just one in a hundred ways you could create your veggie wrap. Feel free to sub in more or less of anything or add in anything you would like. The amount it yields is also easy to change. The amount of veggies you need depends on how stuffed you like your wraps and how many people you are feeding. What I have below is a lunch just for me, myself and I.

Enjoy!
