On my running to-do list, I've had this written down for like two weeks:
write a blog about food.

All of a sudden, I'm waking up to cooking and I want to do it all the time!
I tell Lauren Hogan that I feel like I'm turning into her and
THAT is a very good thing.

So here's what I've been making lately:

mulitcultural chicken soup
three frozen breast of chicken
one can of coconut milk
few tblspoons of curry sauce
(put all that mess into the crockpot - for like four hours)
then for the last hour throw in some.....
chili powder
one cup of dry Israeli couscous

butternut squash soup
one onion & tablespoons of butter in the soup pot on low
add in two whole butternut squash - cut up & one apple cut up
and a little bit of curry
also, 2 cups of water and bring that to a boil
reduce heat & cook for 30 minutes
put all that in the blender or if you have an immersion blender, use that.
actually - if you have an immersion blender, send it me for christmas.
so blend it, put it back in the pot & throw one cup of apple juice up in there.
and salt & pepper.

fish tacos
grill some mahi mahi
split open an avocado, mash it, put some s&p, garlic and salsa in it.
pour some plain lowfat yogurt in a bowl and squeeze some lime juice over it.
throw chili powder on all of that.
heat up your quesadillas in the oven and get your husband to roll it all into a taco/burrito since you have sort of awkward hands.
oooooh! and don't forget to heat up a can or corn & and can of black beans and eat it ALL.

apricot bars
get an 8 inch square dish
spray some pam all over that thing, don't use butter - that is MESSY.
throw 1.5 cups of flour, 1 tsp baking powder, .5tsp salt, 1.5 cups oats, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1.75 sticks of butter into a bowl. mix it alllll up and split the batter.
put down half the mixture, then take a jar of apricot preserves and pour it over the mixture, then put the rest of the mixture on top of the preserves and pat it down.
bake for about 40 minutes at 350.
tell ALL of your friends they're healthy because they almost are.

and lastly, because I'm a mean and nasty person - I'm going to share the best recipe ever.
If you make it right, you will eat six hundred of these and be stuck on your couch for the rest of your life. dun dun duuuuun.

coffee cake muffins
(for the muffins)
combine 1/2 c butter, 1.75 c flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and 2 eggs and mix them all up in your blender since you probably can't find the mixing spoons for your electric mixer.
then, wash out the blender before your husband has to do it.
(for the topping)
combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, and a stick of butter.
in the muffin tins -
put a litttle bit of batter down
then a little bit of topping
then more batter,
then a lot of topping.
but keep it level with the tin or you'll have a BIG mess.
(but I like it when they explode)
bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

write a blog about food.
