makes & how to make a rainbow cake!

So I did mention something about health and/or diet food in my last post, and while this recipe is the latter, it is most certainly not to be confused with the former. I posted about my rainbow cake here, and it got a lot of traffic on over to my livejournal, and everyone wanted the “recipe.” The cool thing is that if you’re making something so distractingly colourful, people will think it’s delicious no matter what.

We used to go pick fresh strawberries and blackberries and then come home and pull out the electric machine and load in the ingredients. Watching the ingredients solidify into a delicious dessert had our eyes glued to the spinning bowl. Garlic Potato Chip Stacked Bacon Burger.

Garlic Potato Chip Stacked Bacon Burger

I came up with this idea for a burger for a couple of reasons. One, and probably most importantly, is that my oldest kid has some interesting eating habits. For instance whenever I order out sandwiches from Jimmy John’s, he will order a plain sub, just ham and bread, and yes, they always give me that look and ask, ‘really, just plain ham and bread?” , and when I bring it home, he takes off the ham and just eats that, then loads up his plain sub roll with the bag of chips and has a chip sandwich.

But then again a lot of people do. If you are one of that one’s that “DO” like mushrooms this is an easy recipe for sautéed mushrooms. They can be used on top of steaks, on top of burgers, or even to help give a sandwich a “meaty” filling for those who do not eat meat. The thyme and the white wine really add a lot of flavor to these mushrooms while the rosemary adds a bit of a “woodsy” or “piney” flavor. Just be careful with the rosemary as it can easily overpower the dish. Rustic Tuscan Vegetable Soup.

It’s finally “winter” here in the desert.

And after a brutally hot summer I am READY for the cold. We just had a crazy winter storm that brought lots of rain & snow up north and even sleet here in Phoenix! This crazy weather made me crave a nice hot bowl of soup…I didn’t want a bowl of brothy soup, but one that was rather hearty, yet filling AND healthy.
