Huevos Rancheros

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

I had forgotten the worse part about being sick with a nasty cold… the loss of taste buds. Their departure has come at a bad time too. Sweets is just now succumbing to the evils of this cold and is feeling the need to feed it. I however, am more interested in junk food so [...]

Kitty Grass

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

I’ve been knocked down pretty hard by a nasty cold the last couple of days. Unfortunately food has been an after-thought of sorts, though I was lucky to have chicken soup at hand from our roast chicken this weekend. My cat has faired a little bit better being the lucky recipient of a container of [...]

Cafe Sienna

Saturday, March 26th, 2005

A new addiction has been brewing forth in our household… the need for a satisfyingly large weekend breakfast. In addition to establishing the pace for the day it has become a new way for us to get our fill of Mexican food. Cafe Sienna, tucked in the busy 13th Ave strip of campus has become [...]

Almond Nectar

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

Eugene has introduced me to many exciting flavors to swirl around my mouth. A significant player in this flavor party was Genesis Juice, a local juice manufacturer that specializes in raw juices that aren’t pasteurized. Their juice came in funky shaped glass bottles, and entertained us with fresh flavors: green spirulina smoothies, ginger lemonade, strawberry [...]

Peep Show

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

My walk home from breakfast today gave me ample time to swear off sugary goodies for at least a couple days. Sweets and I had just finished our plates of pancakes gilded with tropical syrup, glistening in the morning light like liquid glass. Marmalade flavored syrup is a new favorite topping for our pancakes… another [...]

Sugar High Friday: Caramel

Friday, March 18th, 2005

Last time I made caramel, I got stung and it clumped up and crystalized on me making me respect the perfected product more.

Sweetened Avocado on the Half Shell

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

Looking through used bookstores recently has impressed on me how strong my visual memory is from my childhood. The Silver Palate cookbook made me smile, but not as big as catching a glimpse of the blue spine of Gourmet’s Menu Cookbook. I have also run across a selection of titles from the Time Life cookbook [...]

Our local paper ran an article in the Food Section about a Eugene woman who prepares an annual Irish Dinner to celebrate more than beer at St Patricks Day. This year, Betty Speck is [...]

Shopping Up A Storm

I’ve been having alot of fun recently. I’m pretending I’m back in school and creating little art projects for myself. Today was the sign up day for classes at the Craft Center and I just signed up for a marble making class (how cool is that!) and I’ve totally gotten into making up fun images [...]
