confessions of a foodie

i love food. it's become more of an obsession, really. everyone who knows me can testify. living in a dorm & being limited to what i can eat/make has made me that much more appreciative & experimental when it comes to making food at home. so, last week i decided to take action & actually make recipes seen on Pinterest & other websites. 

MEAL #1: Cauliflower crust pizza with a nut & fruit salad

topped the crust with grilled mushrooms, onions,
pepperoni & cheddar cheese.

toasted almonds, dried cherries, raspberry vinaigrette.
best. salad. ever.

 MEAL #2: Salmon pinwheels & polenta fries

added cranberries & mozzarella cheese

polenta is like cornmeal. cut up & toast for easy fries!
[great with italian seasoning]

so far, the experiments have been a success. now i just need to work on presentation--making the food look as good as it tastes. happy eating! 


goodbye old friend

well, it's finally over. already over. over all the same. 2011 is gone & with it the dreams, heartache & expectations for the year. through it all i faithfully kept this little blog, taking & posting at least 1 picture a day for the entire year. i have yet to look through each frozen memory all in one sitting, but i know it will be an incredible journey in itself as i relive each & every day from January 1st to December 31st of the grand 2011. this blog was not easy-- some days i struggled to find a picture to celebrate the life i've been given. other times i couldn't post enough; life was bursting through the seams of my soul. but all the same, i am an incredibly blessed individual who may not quite know exactly who she is, but has enjoyed & will continue to love the exploration & adventure of life here on earth. goodbye old friend... here's to hoping for a great 2012.
