Edible Inspiration: Week 18

Less phlegm, a sunny day, and brisk morning jogs makes me happy to share some images from the week.

1)  Skillet happiness, right here.


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.


5)  A tablecloth made by a friend to adorn our table.

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.

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.

Edible Inspiration: Week 10

You are everybody! [unabashed LOST reference]

Admittedly, the photos this week are not entirely tied into food, but I can guarantee you that I probably ate something, was dreaming of something food related, prepared something or shortly there after I started taking one of these photos. In fact, expect a Kitchen Letters post very soon.

1)Frosted window provides for a magical leafy vine.


2)  Kitty feet.  [the hair BETWEEN his toes ^______^]


3)Fortunate to have these dainty blooms to look at in our front yard at this time of year.


4)  Take a closer look, and you just might find eensy flowers at your feet.


5)  Uh, oh!  Nature has made it’s way inside.


Have a lovely weekend, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for Kitchen Letters coming up.  Here’s some from the past.

A trip out-of-town refreshed my perspective.  Take a peek.

4)  Harmonizing tea.

Edible Inspiration: Week 8

Good morning everyone,

1)  The rain came.  This trumpet creeper (campsis radicans) is sneaking in our backyard from our neighbor’s beautiful landscaping, and I can’t complain.  After prepping food in the kitchen Sunday, I decided to take a break and venture outside for a bit.  I’m pleased I did.


2)  I think the days of basil are soon to come to an end, but I’ve taken full advantage of this year’s crops.  This basil topped some lightly fluffed rainbow quinoa.


3)  Trumpet flowers coming through, with their extended stamen, had me enamored once again.  However, in focusing on this hidden floral surprise, I discovered some fruit on a tree extending into our yard from our neighbors yard along a shared fence.  Does anyone know what it is? They are about the size of two large grapes put together.


4)  Early Autumn welcome dish.  The Mr. made a delicious apple crisp bake.  The cinnamon aroma wafting throughout our home-made this dish worth while even before we tasted it.


5)  Rainy night comfort food.


Spend some time outside this weekend dancing in the rain or whatever weather is marking your neighborhood.  Let’s see those edible inspirations under the hashtag #edibleinspiration



Edible Inspiration: Week 5

Good morning people of the world,

1)  We plucked peaches directly from the tree; what a charming and ever-humbling experience.


2)  Crisp green apples, mother-in-law truly treated us!


3) This big guy also enjoyed the fruit of the trees.  [I think it is a Green June Beetle.]


4)These drooping, bundled wisteria blooms in my grandmother’s–mama (mawmaw)–backyard were resplendent and wafted the most irresistible fragrance.  The wisteria that line the fence and lattice-like archway in her yard have been there for years and hold a very special place in my grandmother’s heart.  I hope to transplant a part for myself very soon!



5)Okra pieces ready to be baked.  I just can’t get enough!


I anticipate a fun, productive and challenging weekend ahead, can’t wait!  Excited to see your images under the hashtag #edibleinspiration .  And remember…bite responsibly!
