Eggplant Rollatini

Eggplant Rollatini

I am a huge eggplant fanatic.  Whenever I make vegetarian meals I’ll admit that I tend to gravitate to either eggplants or mushrooms or both. I have a vague memory of being a child and us trying to grow eggplants in our basement?  I’m not sure what we were thinking considering the plants probably needed sun but maybe we moved them?

Slow Cooker Italian Turkey Pot Roast

Why is it my best meals never photo well? *frustrating* I tried to make this meal three separate times previously and something always happened to foil my plans (husband cooked it on high for 9 hours, slow cooker broke, etc.). Well I finally made it, and it was glorious!  Everything just combined in the cooker to make magic and I thoroughly enjoyed every ... Read More »

  So yeah, this is a chowder.  How the heck do you make a chowder look tasty?  I mean, I don’t think I’ve ever looked at a soup and thought ‘That looks yummy!’.  Usually I have to read the ingredients to see that it’s probably going to be good. I think I took something like 20 different shots of this ... Read More »

  It’s going to be a crazy week for me since I have finals next week and I’m finishing up the project that’s due next Wednesday, eek! Basically other than work and school I’m going into hiding, but you, my lucky, smart and attractive readers will at least hear from me because I do intend to keep up on my ... Read More »
