Quick post

This is just a quick post featuring a few things I have enjoyed lately and a simple recipe!

Local Mint Mojito ( ;) Gracie!)

Made with mint fresh from the garden, agave nectar, rum, soda and lime.

Grilled Veggie & Prosciutto Panini

Grilled onions, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, prosciutto, and herbed mayo (dill, basil, lemon, salt, pepper).

Mom’s Blueberry Buckle

Butter, sugar, butter, flour, butter, butter, blueberries, sugar.

Whole Wheat Waffle with Almond Butter

That swirl is awesome.

PS! Its hug a fruit month!

This is me dangling a rambutan, the most delicious fruit on the planet. The photo was taken in Thailand, where rambutans are native (among other countries in SE Asia). Once you peel away the rubbery outer layer, a squishy ball of fruit is revealed. I can’t really describe the flavor, but its sweet and delicious.

    PS. The lemon-poppyseed loaf was INCREDDD. I had to modify it because I don’t have whole wheat flour in my house, and added a couple of other things (like lemon basil), but overall your recipe was a total inspiration. I love. I love I love. I’ll show you pictures…soon. :-) <3

    • Yes, when she bakes she doesn’t mess around with healthy substitutions. She’s straight up ballin.áAnd I am so PUMPED that the loaf was yummy! I reallly want to see pictures! And you added basil, that is awesome. A bit more savory… Mmm.

  5. I had freeze-dried rambutan once from TJ’s. I loved it — I hope to try the fresh kind someday. :D

    Oooh, now I’m craving blueberry buckle! That looks so delish. =)

  6. I’m going to have to go out and find some rambutan some day – what does it taste like?

    That tofu looks delish – I need to make it

    ANNNND…

    You’re just too pretty!!!!!

  7. That pic of you is cute babe! And next time you go to thailand – you best be taking me! (:

    I’m gonna definitely save that tofu recipe, I am always on the look out for good ones. Too bad my tofu cooking skills are pretty sucky.

  8. That PB swirl looks like… uh. Something unappetising. I’m sure you can figure out what it is. How did you get it like that, though??

    Love it!

  12. I’ve seen that fruit at the Asian market! But I was turned off by its spider-ness. Since you say it’s good, I’m going to go ahead and get it next time

    Your pics are like works of art! Especially that perfect dollop of pb

  13. Yums all around! Love a refreshing mojito. How much longer are you in Austin?

  14. Ooo I will have to hunt that little fruit down at the Asian markets in the Bay.

    I love the little Dr. Seuss loop at the top of your almond butter. It reminds me of the top of a soft serve!
