As I look back at the past month and wonder where it went, I see that Yes!Chef! and I have been pretty busy with life type stuff and he hasn’t had a lot of time to cook up a bunch of things for the blog.
If you are on Facebook, I’m sure you have noticed the pictures of food that come complete with recipes. They say things like, “2 Ingredient Frosting”, or “My mom could not believe how easy this Cordon Blue Recipe is”, or “Tastes just like the original Taco Bell Refried Beans.” This Ranch Salad Dressing recipe says, “Best ranch you’ll ever taste and its homemade. Recipe lasts for ever too.” and it is provided by Carla Reid Chatterton.
The headline quote sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? I made that up because I couldn’t find any good peach quotes. And who wouldn’t love someone that brings you 12 perfect peaches? A friend of my youngest son’s showed up the other day to play some video games and he brought us the peaches. I think I will adopt him.
I think love and strawberries go together. After all, you can dip strawberries in chocolate, or drop them into champagne, or slice them up and serve with ice cream drizzled with chocolate. All of these are romantic and put you in the mind for love. And between Yes!Chef! and myself, we have been making quite a few strawberry recipes lately.
Carrots have a lot going for them. They are a pretty color, they are a little sweet, you can eat them raw or cook them and they taste good. In a pinch, you can feed them to horses (or rabbits). Most especially, though: they are very economical and good for you.
