going, going, gone…

Well, I’m off for about 10 days…hooray! While I’m off celebrating my birthday in primitive style (ie. camping), why not enjoy some old gems from my archives? All of these are from my first few months of blogging waaaay back in 2005. Enjoy!

Moroccan Chickpea and Vegetable Stew. This was my very first recipe (but not my first post on this here blog). I didn’t have a camera back then, but trust me, it’s a good recipe. Actually, it’s a bit less freeform which really represents how I cook. Measuring? Me??

Strawberry Shortcake. How can you go wrong? It’s spring, get out your strawberries!!

Couscous & Yam Salad. I make this all the time. It’s awesome. Again, no photo but you get the idea.

Mint Ice Cream. Oh yeah, it’s definitely getting warm out now and ice cream is pretty perfect for this time of year (any time of year, actually). We have an old-fashioned crank ice cream maker that was gifted to us as a wedding present. We make use of it often. It’s hard work but the results are worth it.

    Happy Birthday! Enjoy the camping…I’ll be “roughing it” in June!

    The tomato tart looks awesome. I have some phyllo lurking in the freezer that needs to be used soon. Thanks for the idea!
