Tea Time

Working on a new project so little time to blog.

In the mean time, here's a snippet into one of what I consider a perfect time: sitting down with a cup of black tea with some yummy tea cookies I whipped up!

p.s. Hah! I just realized the "M" on my cup is printed reversed... woops!

Fried Egg over Polenta with Herb Pesto

As you can see by two foodie posts in a row - I'm in a cooking frenzy! Made using this recipe with a couple modifications. I'm not an olive freak so I omitted it from the pesto and have not yet mastered the art of poaching so fried egg it was! It was still delicious sans olives but I would suggest upping the salt content a little to make up for it!

In keeping with watching my budget - I thought it best to start cooking at home again a little more. For lunch, I cooked this Garnet Pilaf recipe by Sprouted Kitchen. Let me just say it is deee-lish! Roasted sweet potato with smoked paprika on a bed of rice/quinoa pilaf sprinkled with chives. Not only are her recipes divine, her images (taken by her husband) are just as gorgeous and inticing!
