Surprise! A weekend post, because I love you. And because thisweek was somewhat lame, blogging wise.

Will Cook For Friends: Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles - It's What's For Dinner (Again) Will Cook For Friends: Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles - It's What's For Dinner (Again) (Spicy Peanut Soba Noodles – recipe in post) One of my favorite, simple, go-to dinners are noodles with peanut sauce. In fact, I’ve already made a post about it, here: Spicy Peanut Sauce – It’s What’s For Dinner After my Seaweed Fiasco a couple of days ago, I went in search of a way to repurpose the incredible, flavorful sesame ginger vinaigrette I had made. My intention was to sweeten it up, and make a cool soba noodle salad… but then a voice in my head came to me, in a whisper, and it said: peanut butter.

« Fresh: Asian Cashew Noodle Salad I spent the weekend on Lake Mayfield. It’s a glorious place to spend Memorial Day weekend, or any weekend, really. When I’m out there, I do a lot of cooking, and it’s usually cooking for a crowd. Entertaining during the summer doesn’t have to mean slaving over the stove while your guests are there. I find it easiest to prepare a few cold salads ahead of time, so you can enjoy your friends and family and still eat fresh, homemade food. « Fresh: Asian Cashew Noodle Salad

Pasta Fresca with Prosciutto, Peas and Tomatoes
Just the recipe... I made quinoa and mushroom meatballs a few weeks ago. And then I made them again, as soon as it cooled down enough in my apartment to turn on the oven. The first time I had them with a tomato sauce, but I knew I wanted them with a mushroom, white wine, cream sauce. But it got too hot in my apartment to even think about turning on the stove and I ate my meatballs with red sauce (and straight out of the fridge as a protein-packed snack, shh! I live to eat leftovers cold out of the fridge, I don't know why). Leek and Mushroom Cream Sauce Leek and Mushroom Cream Sauce

Recipe: Vegan Avocado Alfredo Sauce Learning to love avocados, one Alfredo recipe at a time. Avocados often get a bad rap, but for the wrong reason – for being fat. It’s about time we all got over this myth. Recipe: Vegan Avocado Alfredo Sauce

pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe In my humble opinion, there’s cooking and there’s cooking. (I know, I’ll just give you a minute for the staggering profundity of that sentence to kick in.) What I mean is, it’s one thing to turn banana bread into a crepe, that crepe into a cake, that cake into a vehicle for walnut butterscotch, drooling, diet-postponing, and seconds, and it’s an entirely other thing to find yourself at the playground at 5:15 p.m. and realize a) you don’t actually have anything in the fridge that you can turn into dinner, b) you, in fact, barely feel like cooking, in fact, your interest in cooking is only a single degree stronger than your desire to order in, so this better be easy, and c) the adjacent farmers market which you have heard from others boasts ramps and asparagus and spinach and other new!
What a journey raw food can take us on! It all started with a longing for Pad Thai, took a stop along the way to make raw fresh coconut milk and ended up with this wonderful Asian inspired dish that really isn’t Pad Thai at all! The flavors are fresh, bright and inspiring. Raw Thai Style Noodles and Veggies

Lemony asparagus pasta - The Inspired Plate - Food Photography & StylingT Bilodeau Photography Already we are on our 4th installment of our 12 month Food Photography and Styling Challenge. This was a fun and interesting challenge for me. I really focused on the “Styling” and “Prop” placement for this one. I confess that my styling abilities are limited and I really need to focus and think about what it is that I am trying to achieve. When I prepared this meal I actually made two different toppings and sauces to go with them.
