Warm Duck and Kale Salad

I love eating fresh ingredients but sometimes the idea of eating a cold salad, in a cold house, with the visual of winter outside every window your eye happens to graze across, simply does not sound really wonderful. The work around here is a warm salad – still a salad, with healthy, fresh, and yes, cold ingredients but with warm, cooked components. Warm salads help sustain me through the wintertime, along with some cozy soups. Especially when I’m trying to distract myself from the fact that there’s probably fresh cookies around every corner of my kitchen and pantry.

Chicken Mole and Veggies

I know that Spring is coming but I can’t help but keep falling in love with fall veggies and flavors over and over again.  I’m not even mad about it, in fact, I’m very much okay with that.  I love eating what is seasonal and available locally, but sometimes you just crave sweet potatoes and black beans.  Anyway, it’s been a while, too long if you ask me, since I’ve written.  Life again had caught up with me and bogged me and my free time down, making me unable to update the blog.  But I’m back again!
