It continues to shock me how quickly we transition from one season to another.
Just a couple of days ago I was enjoying my cucumber watermelon salad, by now a summer staple in the house.
Yesterday I stopped by the grocery store on my way home from work and what did I see? Mums and pumpkins on sale. Well, that made me think of pumpkin bread.
So I bought pumpkin purée.
When I get home from work today, even if it’s still blazing hot out there, I’ll crank up the oven and bake me the pumpkin bread I so crave right now.
There will be no store-bought pumpkin anything for me, if I can help it. I simply can’t abide the spices, specifically the nutmeg. It must be freshly ground, that’s the only way I can tolerate nutmeg. Picky, picky…
Anyway, here’s to weekend baking for me… what are y’all doing this weekend?!
“I’ve never seen carrots (or any vegetable) presented so beautifully! The carrot miso purée sounds especially yummy!” — Ai
“How beautiful are those lattice carrot rolls?! I mean, that’s just so freaking creative way of serving carrots. Applause, please!” — Angie
“Korean pancakes have been a favorite of mine since I was a kid! I’ve only ever had them with seafood, but this vegetarian version looks delicious!” — Ai
“I love Korean pancakes aka Pajeon! There’s this Korean restaurant we frequent that has this amazing seafood Pajeon. The texture is incredible. I’ve been trying to decode the recipe, so I’ve been looking for recipes. I’ll definitely give this version a try.” — Angie
“I’ve never heard of Kovakkai Thogayal, but all I want now is a bowl of this chutney with some roti or parathas! It looks so spicy and full of bold flavor!” — Ai
“Ok, relax, people, I know it isn’t food but look… this is such a cute and thrifty idea. Recycling at its best! Maybe it’s the gardener in me, but I just love that lady bug!” — Angie
