We needed something green, full of basil, and delicious. Alas, we threw some stuff into the mini Cuisinart: basil, pine nuts, more basil, oil, more oil, some more pine nuts, and spun it around for a good while.

These are my girlfriends. Corelyn’s, too. They are wonderful.

Jeff cuts the garlic…

Presto! Delicious garlic is ready.

This is some cabbage, steamed, because Rebecca thought it was salad. Either way, it was delicious.

Final product.

We never forget to include the garlic bread. Too delicious.

Dinner is served.


It’s time we talk about something very near and dear to our hearts. Every Sunday there is a massive farmer’s market only a few blocks from our humble home. Reason #512 we love our apartments and living in Hollywood. This week, we went to the market and left with a delicious bounty as usual.

Selecting the best brussel sprouts is serious business. We love brussels and the boys actually like them too. This makes them one of our most often consumed veggies.

DSC_0164DSC_0144We’re on a budget, so we couldn’t indulge in these pumpkins or ginger blossoms. That will have to wait until a little closer to Thanksgiving. You know, when centerpieces become a legitimate necessity…

DSC_0178I am overjoyed.

DSC_0203All the vegetables we have in the kitchen. Most of these were purchased this morning. The rest are from last week’s market. We needed to survey our bounty and cook a couple things right away while they were still good.

DSC_0206The squash and pepper needed to go first, so we threw them in the cast iron and had some eggs with our veggies. It was an excellent Sunday morning, and all of it before noon! Now we’re off to help our new BFF Cricket find a bridesmaid dress! Ciao.


Hello. We really did cook some okra, some salmon and some rice the other night. Here are some pictures to prove it.

Some of our raw ingredients. Okra, onion of course, cherry tomatoes. I washed the okra thoroughly, per the instructions I found online, and then let it air dry. This was supposed to prevent the okra from becoming slimy…

Delicious Garlic

We added garlic, too…

I can’t take credit for how delicious this salmon looks/was. I buy the pre-seasoned frozen salmon fillets from Costco. I highly recommend them for something yummy and good for you in a pinch.

This dish turned out to still be a little slimy, but it could have been the very old pepper we threw in with it. Still, next time, I’ll clean the okra more vigorously. Slimy, or not, though, it was Delicious.

There were some mishaps along the way. Here we have Jennie, who had to leave the kitchen when the chopped onion attacked her tear ducts. Documentation was necessary.

Yesterday, Corelyn and I headed to the Italian Festival with Jeff. I was beside myself with excitement, and proclaimed to Jeff, “I haven’t been to an Italian Festival since the summer before last!” I was basically jumping up and down. I just love being around other Italians, as well as being around delicious food.
