I'm Really Enjoying This...

Today I'll be fantasy cooking from this kitchen (I remodeled!):

Pioneer Woman's Migas

No Onions or bell pepper for me, so these are definitely prettier!


Rachael Ray's Chipotle-Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

With a few Julio's Corn Tortilla Chips or some French Bread...yummy!

Paula Deen and Bobby's Baked Tilapia

Ina Garten's Parmesan Roasted Asparagus

And dessert:

This is very interesting, not my usual fare, but it's peaked my curiosity and I can't stop thinking or talking about it, so had to post it here. Lots of flavors, textures, and ingredients that don't usually all end up at the same pan, but I have to try it!

Wishful Thinking

I haven't posted in a while...and probably won't for a while, as I am on bedrest! Since I think about cooking and baking, I thought it would be fun if I posted some things I wished I was making, eating, or sound delish as I sit here. How about that guys? It'll be fun...

Oh, I'm so excited!!!

And while cooking and baking fictional food, let's just imagine me in this fictional kitchen, k?

I'm hungry, it's time for breakfast, so how about my fictional breakfast meal? Here it is:

Picky Palate's Pumpkin Spiced Cream Cheese Breakfast Rolls

And my cup of Starbucks would normally be a spiced pumpkin latte at this point in the year, but since I've had my pumpkin fix with the breakfast rolls, we'll go with something a little less foofy this morning, not as sweet as I usually go.

(this, of course is a fictional Starbucks location I'm having my coffee...hmmmmm, where shall I be?)

Oh this is more fun than I thought--I can't wait for lunch!!

Fictional Lunch: (No Onions, of course...)

Ezra Pound Cake's Grilled Vegetable and Goat Cheese Sandwich

Link won't work, so copy and paste to see original blog:

with a side of these, please!

(I have made fried pickles and loved the recipe I have. Robbye and I made them one weekend because she has a deep fryer and I don't--thank goodness. My preference is pickle slices, NOT spears, and the panko gave it a very good texture--I did find lots of recipes that used a cornmeal breading, but to me the panko packs a good crunch!)

And dinner..

Greta made this and told me it was great--not surprised since it's from Pioneer Woman--she's my hero! I've been craving Asian this pregnancy and have wanted to make these but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Pioneer Woman's Simple Sesame Noodles

Copy and paste (WHY can't I post a link today?)

Pioneer Woman says simple is best on this one, but I might add some shredded carrots or matchstick cucumbers...and No Onions, of course!
