Eat Your Heart Out, Martha Stewart!

All it took was a short jaunt to Guerneville. At the end of the path were good friends, a cozy fire, a vodka martini with extra olives, and a fabulous dinner of the most tantalizing comfort food.

The table looked magazine-worthy with sunny daffodils at its center, reminding us that spring is soon to arrive to chase the cold away. Wonderful.

Green, Green

Still attempting to make the holiday weight gain ride into the sunset, I am going greener in the kitchen. I miss the pasta. I miss the rice. I miss the bread. But it is time to get serious since March is approaching.

A little olive oil with a tad of salt and pepper makes  these healthy green treats, after baking,  quite a delectable side dish. Adding a conservative serving of panko coated boneless chicken as the main course makes for a yummy and modestly caloric dinner.

It's working... though it always amazes me how quickly a few pounds go on and how slooooowly they come off.

A Pizza Moment

I seem to be unable to write about anything but food lately. So be it. Eating well is one of my great loves after all. Apparently I have passed this passion onto my daughter, who has turned into a very accomplished cook. As she made pizza dough from scratch, I watched with great interest while she created a culinary masterpiece.
It was so fabulous! And I had seconds.
