Spend some time showing a little extra loving this weekend.  And remember…bite responsibly.

A week’s images to delight your eyes.

1)  Cool winter light and air plants when I look up.  When I see this, I’m grateful for seasons and I’m grateful for winter produce.

3)  Bear pancakes to satiate hungry morning appetites and inside jokes.

Edible Inspiration: Week 18

2)  I used this incredible gift from my mother-in-law to make a scrumptious wild rice and mushroom pilaf.


3)This lacinato kale has been spun.


4)  These spicy flakes help to spruce up our meal.

Edible Inspiration: Week 17

Happy new year everyone! Some photos from the weeks that have passed since I last posted all the way up to present day.

1)  I forced bulbs for the first time this winter.  I chose paperwhites, and though they were stunning in appearance, their odor was uncomfortably stunning.  I know my husband was happy to see these delicate little flowers finally wilt.  This was a fun project and a way for me to connect more to another season in the midst of our Texas winter.


2)  Roasted delicata squash.  One of my favorite squashes of the season for its buttery and savory flavor.


3)  Rice noodle miso soup with extra garlic, on a cold day, does the trick.


4)  2015 celebratory champagne from these sexy glasses, which were given to me by my incredible mama (maw-maw).


5)  The Mr. in action, charring some onion for a pho that he made.  Results, incredible!


6)  Our furriest in an IKEA doll bed that was given to us by a friend and colleague.  Doesn’t he look snug?


Let me see more of your Edible Inspiration pics at the start of this year under the hashtag #edibleinspiration and remember…bite responsibly!

Edible Inspiration: Week 16

Some snapshots from the week.

1)  The Mr. brews beer.  This is him pouring in the liquid malt extract, which is the sugar that feeds the yeast.


2)  Almond green curry swirls in coconut milk.


3)  100% buckwheat noodles take a plunge.  Careful, don’t over cook.


4)  Happy to bust out what’s left of my beautiful holiday dishes–given to me by my mama (maw-maw)–and plate this yummy curry.


5)  ‘Tis the season for this noble fir, coming humbly to us from the northwest.  “Thank you” to the trees for providing us with oxygen.


6)  How many rings do you count?  Our special one shows its age.

Hi happy gormandizers,

This week, for many, has been a time of extra food prep and extended time with the ones you love.  I hope it’s a joy!

Edible Inspiration: Week 14

Good morning all,

This week has been a splendid exploration.  I’m especially pleased to share photos with you all this week!

1)  On a walk about in our neighborhood, I came across these delicate flowers.  The leaves remind me of rosemary.


2)  Baked some scrumptious gluten-free chocolate chip cookies with a friend, and we used a stone! Recipe to come. :)


3)  Coconut oil solidifies on our cast iron in this cool weather.  The appearance reminds of cellular structures.


4)  Crispy millet veggies patties.  MMMmmm!


5)  These acacia wood salt and pepper grinders.


6)  Bonus, finding this purr-box before slumber.
