My Time in The Kitchen Is...

few and far between.
slow paced.
not missed if I am absent.
an attempt to use whatever is in the fridge or cabinet.
not going to produce meals worthy of winning any competitions.
usually successful.

After blogging for 7 months and reading food blogs for over a year now, I've had some time to reflect on this subject. I'm not super creative in the kitchen, in fact some of what I prepare in general is lacking originality. I still enjoy the food and a photograph or two or ten. I hope you guys do too.

Cous Cous, sauteed broccolini, avocado & tomato.
Tomato Basil Linguine.
Panko Crusted Cod Fish with rice pilaf, asparagus & tomato.{Fall}
Baked Potato smothered in sour cream with a corn & onion succotash.
Chili Rubbed Steak Tacos
with sauteed peppers and onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream, radishes and cilantro.
I did a pretty good job cooking the steak! Mozzarella Pork Cutlet
with spaghetti in a lemon butter caper sauce and sauteed zucchini.

No recipes. Just randomness.


  1. Mmmmm that tomato basil linguini might just be dinner tmrw night :D

  2. I love it. All of it. And I appreciate it. I date a Chef, but I'm not a chef so when I'm in the kitchen I cook simple things, but still find great pleasure in the process and in eating my food!

    Thanks for sharing. The spaghetti w/lemon butter caper and zucchini looks (and sounds) amazing right now. Yum.


  3. I do love seeing your cookings and eats and if you read my next post you'll notice I'm not very creative either. You do seem much more creative than I do :)

  4. Everything looks fab! The pork cutlet especially.

  5. The linguine is calling my name. Sometimes simple things are the best... (and, admittedly, I tend to stop reading food blogs that are WAY over my head technically... bc I just will never be able to replicate any of the dishes!)

  6. It is funny because I am going to post a pseudo-confession type blog post today too...I think what makes all of our blogs so enjoyable is that we have different perspectives, topics, etc.

  7. Who said you have to cook like a Michelin chef? I have lots of cookbooks but I never follow recipes exactly, I sort of do what they say, then add a bit here and there... isn't that how it's supposed to be? I think the food you cook is great, lots of veg, too, that's good!

  8. I think that food is plenty creative... and most of all it all looks delicious! I'd want any of that on my table. I'm not super-creative but I'll challenge myself with crazy recipes sometimes.

  9. You cooked this? Well Miss Child I have to say you are quite creative in the kitchen...the food looks great

  10. I love this post!!! I always think its fun to see what people cook up in their kitchen whether they are in there all the time or once in awhile. All those dishes look delicous and creative to me!

  11. It looks awesome! This is definitely something Mr. Deer would cook, I am nowhere near putting together anything like this. But I sure do appreciate food, though, I love! And yes, my friend I posted on yesterday lives in Amsterdam, hells yeah! XX!

  12. Your food puts my food to SHAME. LOL. I really like that first dish- that looks so yummy!

    Happy Friday!!

    Btw, did you go to StyleFixx?

  13. Keep the randomness coming. Impressive seasonal dish. Two thumbs up...

    Perfectly cooked steak agreed.

  14. Ooh, I want to devour that baked potato. Yummy!

  15. You are super creative in the kitchen! I am so impressed with every meal in this post and can appreciate their delicious simplicity.

    If you saw some of the scary things that come out of my kitchen you'd realize you are quite talented. :)
