I have still been cooking away in the kitchen and have several recipes to post, but with 3 kids, one of whom has been cutting 4 teeth this week and not napping, I have run short on time for blogging. I have been taking pictures and will be posting in the next day or two.
Here's what you can look for in upcoming posts:
Sweet Potato Pie made with sweet potatoes from our CSA
Easy Black Bean soup
Black beans and rice with chicken andouille sausage
homemade baby food- sweet potatoes and butternut squash
and a few more.
I did try a new recipe for cream cheese filled cupcakes, using tofutti cream cheese, but they were horrible! I'm still working on that one...
I also had intended to make chicken and dumplings this week, but the chicken we bought from the grocery store had an issue so we could not use it. Needless to say, I have since found a farm to get fresh chickens from and will be avoiding grocery store meat as much as possible.
Our new goal for our kitchen is to buy as little pre-packaged products as possible. This will take some time to switch over, but I hope to only buy fresh, natural ingredients and make all our food from scratch from now on. (with the exception of a few of the girls snack items) I already bake all of our sweet treats, and have started making the girls homemade oatmeal in the mornings. I know I can't cut out the cereal, but I can make my oatmeal, waffles, pancakes from scratch.
Also on the list of changes is to switch from soy milk to almond milk. I made oatmeal for myself today using vanilla almond milk and it was fantastic! I'll be using it in my cooking from now on, and will also be trying out different brands to see which is the best. Currently I am using Silk.
So that's it from here for now. Back to the kitchen:-) Happy Cooking!
