Oscars!

In honor of the oscars and wanting an excuse for a "fancy" dinner, I made this...

Black Bean tacos with cole slaw, onions, cilantro and feta! A kind of weird, but very tasty combo. And very quick and easy to make, bonus!


I had another pie crust so I made this again, although this time I also used raspberries. Yum.

Happy Valentine's Day! (and Mike's Birthday)

Today I tried out some new recipes from epicurious.com- my new favorite website! Last night I made a glazed lime cake, delicious! And the first time I have ever made a cake not using a box! Then today I made Mike a special bday lunch (turkey-cilantro bites, and a spinach salad with avocado and orange) and I just made this....

before...


after...


I need to work on making it look prettier, it kind of exploded everywhere! I haven't tried it yet, just came out of the oven. It is a blueberry gellette.

We celebrated Vday this morning and exchanged presents and ate a fancy lunch. Mike gave me these beautiful earrings..


Tonight we are having some friends over to celebrate Mike's bday. I am making a funfetti cake for that!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yummers dinner.

I made/assembled this simple, fresh dinner from things I bought yesterday.

"rustic mediterrean bread", tomato basil goat cheese, and tomato slices. This is the kind of food I want to eat all summer. With some avocado thrown in and pineapple on the side. Come on summer!! Bring your sunny, warm weather and delicious in season fruits!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Last night I went to a Chinese New Year celebration. It was so fun and had free chinese food! Score! Mike played with 2 of his friends, here is the band before their big performance...



The opening act! The cutest little kids singing!





The auditorium before the performances began...



Mike and his friends playing. It was very dark, so hard to get a good photo.



Andrew, playing traditional Chinese songs. It was really neat, the crowd was singing along and waving their cell phones.
