As we all muddle our way through the day, dealing with post-election depression (it's sort of like post-partum depression, only without being responsible for an infant), I thought I would provide you all with a little fluff to brighten your day (and whet your appetite).
Behold! Further evidence that my continuing singleness is absolutely criminal.
Homemade Kaiser Rolls.
Not bad considering they were my first attempt.
Proof that I actually did it myself.
Um, hello? Who wouldn't want to wake up to fresh bagels on a Sunday without having to leave the house?
I've been making pizza at least once a week, sometimes more, as I continue my search for the ultimate crust recipe.
Herbed Chicken with Roasted Savory Sweet Potatoes
A.) Sweet potatoes are a million times better when made with herbs and spices vs. sugar and marshmallows; and
B.) It's moderately depressing eating a rockin' meal like this alone while watching Bones on your DVR.
Pumpkin Ravioli... FROM SCRATCH!!
Does this one even require further justification as an illustration of my awesomeness? No? Good.
Behold... My Halloween costume:
Okay, okay, so it's not food... but only, like, 3 people actually got to see my costume on Halloween, so I felt the need to share. Especially considering that if I keep eating all of this fabulous food by myself, I'll never fit into that costume again!
I'm the smiley face :)
And so here I sit, basking in the smell of the two ginormous loaves of Italian bread currently baking in my oven, and contemplating what I will do with the leftovers after cooking an entire chicken just for myself.
Expect another installment in this series before the week is out.
