Don't be fooled. This is and never will be a cooking blog. However, I feel challenged by some of my readers and also by some fellow-bloggers to step it up a bit in the kitchen department.
So, this morning, I made a lovely quickie quiche. It used 6 eggs, 1 1/2 cups of half and half, 3/4 cup Bisquick, 2 cups shredded cheddar, garlic, some bacon crumbles, salt and pepper.
Trust me, I won't soon be making my own tortillas like LuckyBunny! Check out her blog. I went for the endearing animal and lovely nature pictures, but I am filing her recipes in the back of my head.
Also, if you are interested in slow-food cooking with natural goodness, check out Chapman Landings cooking school blog. Nancy lives in my neck of the woods on a historic farm property and she's all about eating well, eating fresh and eating local. I swear, I think Nancy could make a delicious 12 course meal out of an egg, home-grown lettuce, some sumac, a couple birch leaves and local strawberry tea.
I have a little story about my phobia of potlucks. Since I'm not very adept in the kitchen, I usually find something in the frozen section to bring (I do cook it though!). Having to supply part of a meal when everyone else is into gourmet and organic is very stressful for me. I thought that bringing a fresh veggie platter to the meal was a fail-proof plan. That was until Nancy asked me for the dip recipe...(uhm...open sour cream, pour in powder from envelope, stir until mixed.)...actually, I think she might have just been being polite.
Anyway - I am bouyed by the number of comments that people are leaving lately. I do appreciate you dropping in and leaving a note. Thanks.
