I found out 15min past 4 that markets close 4pm today, so couldnt go buy any food. So i decided to make food out of what i could find from home and ended up with full grain pasta with a sauce like this:
3 small onions and 3 garlic(nails? or what are they called) sliced on pan with some butter, after onions started to get soft added some soy sauce, pesto, ketchup made from sun dried tomatoes, black pepper, paprika powder, oregano and heated them for a while before adding bit more garlic and some cheese spread.
Then mixed with the spaghetti and some emmental cheese.
Was delicious"Where wisdom reigns, there is no conflict between thinking and feeling."

I took the picture with my phone, so it's not very sharp unfortunately, but it was really tasty. Roasted Chicken A'la Orange. Made it with the boyfriend yesterday for Christmas dinner.
It was stuffed with garlic, onions, parsley, butter, and orange slices."There is no god; there is only us. Savage and fragile."

The toffee comes out nice and crunchy with a little bit of tackiness... sticks to your molars and dissolves slowly. Mmmm...Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

I forget if I've posted it or not, but I've been super into brussels sprouts lately. My favorite way, slice in half and put in glass baking dish, sliced side up. Top with little pats of butter and sprinkle with salt, pepper, cooking sherry. Roast at 350 or so until tender (it takes a long time maybe like half hour or something). They are soooooo amazing roasted. Also nice and tasty with just olive oil and S&P.
I have a recipe with hazelnuts that I'd like to try at some point... when I remember to get hazelnuts at the store.Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

For friend gifts for the holidays, I made treats: pistachio almond macaroons and candied orange slices. The macaroons are great, fairly easy, and a hit. The orange slices were more of a long-term project. Blanch (sp?) them and then bathe them in a sugar syrup bath for 2-3 weeks, increasing the concentration at certain points, remove, let them drain/dry 1-2 and roll them in granulated sugar (and dip in melted chocolate if you like!). They were tasty, but I am not convinced they were worth the effort.Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

Hm. I guess I've been in a cooking mood lately. Yesterday I had some friends over and made this creamy mushroom soup with paprika served with rye bread and... roasted brussels sprouts of course!
Would have been more nutritious with homemade rye with whole wheat but I couldn't find the recipe. Ah well.Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.
