vegan pasta salad recipe | Live. Learn. Love. Eat. I am not a huge fan of raw vegetables. You could probably tell that by now from all the baking that I do. I love to eat fruit and I love vegetables in soup, casseroles, stir-fry’s or any other dish that I can load them into. Eating salads or sitting and munching on raw vegetables is not something that I would consider a favorite past time of mine. Luckily Kesa and Autumn love raw vegetables with Catalina dressing. For lunch today I was going to make a soup and bread, but I decided to make something different for a change.

Cable Car Remnants | Forgotten Chicago | History, Architecture, and Infrastructure In 1882, Chicago took a daring step in transit, as it had done previously in countless other fields including public works, meat processing, interstate transportation, futures trading, water management and building construction. At a time when myriad transit schemes and dreams were being tested around the country, especially locally, Chicago became the first city to try San Francisco’s style of cable cars. The City by the Bay had started experimenting with cable cars in 1873 and found them an effective albeit expensive solution to carrying modest numbers of passengers up steep hills in a moderate climate. Inaugurated on a cold, blustery day in January 1882, Chicago City Railway (CCR)’s first cable car line ran on State Street from Madison Street to 21st Street. Nevertheless, the inaugural run went well and the technology appeared to be well suited to Chicago—crowds, cold weather and all.

Strawberry Heart Pie » It was Father’s Day this past Sunday and it’s my dad’s birthday today so I wanted to make something special for him. I had this pear-raspberry heart pie bookmarked for a while and I thought it was the perfect occasion to finally make it. I used the same heart design but I made it into a strawberry pie and I used ready made pie crusts to save time. I know you’re not going to believe me but it was really easy to make. It just looks fancy but that’s the point! It was so delicious. Ingredients 3 – 4 cups of strawberries (cut into chunks)Frozen pie crustPillsbury pie crusts1/2 cup granulated sugar1/2 cup water3 tablespoon cornstarch1 egg yolkSanding sugar In a bowl, coat the cut strawberries with sugar. I used both pie crusts just in case. Let the strawberry filling cool and then pour into the pie shell. Brush one side of the hearts with the egg wash and firmly place them on the crust. This is the first row. Brush the entire pie with egg wash and dust with sanding sugar. The perfect sweet treat!
Hawthorne Threads - Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, Michael Miller & More Kit Kat Cake Kit Kat Birthday Cake & a RecipeGirl Cookbook Deal! I have some fun news today! It’s my birthday! Yay! And I’m super happy to be able to share with you that I’ve signed a deal with Wiley to write The Recipe Girl Cookbook! Let’s celebrate with cake! I saw this idea on the internet somewhere… surrounding a cake with Kit Kats, presenting it with a bow and topping it with M&M’s. It’s really very simple to make. I think you’ll be surprised just how incredibly easy it is to pull this off. I love how the “sea” of M&M’s makes this cake look so pretty. Wrap your brightest, cutest bow around the Kit Kat’s. It makes a fun birthday cake. And it’s delicious too! When I quit teaching and debuted my recipe website back in 2006 and then added the blog in 2008, I never imagined that my life would take such a positive turn… that I would end up with a career that I love so much!
