Last weekend Faye straightened out / organized a couple of our pantry closets, and a single can of white hominy wound up at the front of a row of canned corn. I have only eaten whole hominy a couple of times in my life, and I can’t remember what I had in mind when I … More Hominy Salad
At one time I declared Arepas to be my new favorite food. One would think they would then be in the regular rotation on the menu, but it has been awhile since arepas last came to mind.

Some days there is only enough time for a simple quick breakfast of roasted Hatch chile & Feta cheese omelet before heading out to go canoeing and try out the new kayak.
It’s been several days since my last post. There hasn’t been a lapse in creative activity in the kitchen, it’s just that out of sheer laziness I haven’t taken the time to mention recent events. I’ve been on a toasted whole wheat taco kick lately and have been quite enjoying it. I like that the … More Spinach & Feta Taco
Since I only eat two meals a day I frequently work vegetables into my breakfast menu. This morning I was craving something green so I cooked some frozen spinach in the microwave and mixed it with chopped onion, grated feta cheese, sourdough breadcrumbs and an egg. I also added small amounts of baking powder, baking … More Feta / Spinach Balls
