    HCB #51: put that carrot in my coconut…

    There are many great things that I learned during my time in chef school, and one of the many things that I learned and keep so close to my heart, is the art of making A DAMN GOOD SOUP. For some this doesn’t sound like anything special, but believe me when I tell you that there is an art to making a GOOD soup. I cooked the carrots in soy and coconut milk, along with some garlic, onion and other special ingredients, then brought them together… I used to HATE soup, and dreaded ANY and EVERY occasion that involved soup… until I went to chef school.  Anyway, this soup was…

    HCB #46: Buttermilk heaven

    I’m not a big breakfast eater… honestly, I find the whole breakfast routine to be rather tiresome.. I can think of a number of other things that I’d rather do, with that time spent on making breakfast in the morning… just saying. But, I know it’s the most important meal of the day bla bla bla; so I made buttermilk scones. I love making dough 🙂 roll it out to your desired thickness time to cut em out! egg wash those bad boys! you know I’m a sucka for cranberries! I just wake up, warm one up, put some butter on it and I’m gone. 2 minutes tops. Works good…

    HCB #45: eat this PIE…

    “But I, when I undress me..Each night, upon my knees..Will ask the Lord to bless me..With apple-pie and cheese.”~Eugene Field It was raining, I didn’t wanna watch TV or be on the computer so… LOL gotta work that dough the right way… easiest dough to make ever it should feel nice and firm but soft… roll it over your pan (easier if you wrap the dough around the rolling pin and then lay it over the pan) Before rolling, I cut the dough into two pieces; one for the bottom and one for the top… easiest way to trim the excess is to roll the rolling pin over the pie…

    HCB #44: bout my GREEN!

    After my delish cauliflower balls, I decided it was time to make more; only this time I used spinach! I usually only have spinach steamed with garlic, so this was a welcomed and delicious change 🙂 Some benefits for ya! ♥ Low in calories, high in vitamins and minerals, as well as other phytonutrients. ♥ Excellent source of Vitamin K, A, C, B2, B6, E; spinach is also contains magnesium, folate, iron, calcium, protein, zinc, fibre, and MORE! (it’s also super cheap!) ♥ Got some antioxidants in there, as well as 13 different flavonoid compounds that act as anti-cancer substances. ♥ Heart healthy and good for lowering high blood pressure.…
