Who Wants To Cook?

2 May

The heat is on. It’s  so damn hot and it’s only the beginning of May I’m not looking forward to those months ending with “Y”.  With this weather besides making people (including myself) feel miserable and crabby thinking of the kitchen is not anywhere near our thoughts but we must eat.  Eat! Who wants to cook? Not me!  Eating out does help but by August it will burn a hole in my financial pocket.  So I must get creative with salads and grilled veggies.


Vegetables I’ve Never Tried

29 Mar

As I read more cookbooks, blogs, recipes, etc, I’ve come to realize that there are a bunch of vegetables I’ve never tried.  It’s not that I don’t want to try these veggies it’s just that I have no idea how to make, prepare or combine them with the foods I make.  Here is a list of some of the veggies I steer clear from at the supermarket;

  1. Leek
  2. Parsnip
  3. Figs
  4. Mint
  5. Celery Root
  6. Zucchini Flowers
  7. Fennel
  8. Turnip

And it wasn’t up to a year ago that I finally ventured out and prepared some food with dill and thyme for the first time. Yeah sure I have tasted these two before but in restaurants.

What veggie haven’t your tried yet or recently tried?
