Month: October 2013
One of my favorite sides; and fillings for quesadillas. A really quick way to enjoy summer squash and zucchini–just don’t be shy with the jalapenos.
soup and crackers, 10.16
Last night, I felt like having a warm, comforting meal. It was dreary; it was gray. And so, soup it was. I can churn out a delicious soup any day. But this time, I wanted to amp it up a bit. I wanted a challenge. So homemade cheez-it crackers it was. They were really amazing.…
I’m teaching the blogging portion of a photography class at my school this fall, and got to shoot my doggie cookies on this awesome 2d photo contraption as part of the blog demo day. So cool. I want one.
