Curried Egg Salad

This recipe is adapted from Heidi Swanson's 101 Cookbooks. I wanted to eat something different for breakfast that wouldn't weigh me down. That and I knew I wanted to make homemade pasta for dinner so I wanted to budget the calories. This egg salad is delicious. It does require some chopping but it doesn't take forever to make. Next time I will double it and save the salad for lunch for the week!

Banana Bread

This recipe is adapted from one my dad gave me, from one someone else gave him. So typical! I feel like most my blog entries start that way. This bread is dense and delicious! Most important, you can make this from ingredients you probably have in the house. I always buy bananas when I go shopping. As they turn brown, I throw them in the fridge, and then the freezer. I use the frozen bananas to make bread or as a sweetener in baking instead of using so much sugar.


No recipe. Just a few pictures of our pumpkin carving!
The cyclops seemed to be the right fit for the pumpkin this year!

Orange Fennel Salad

This is a great side to any fish. It is fast and healthy! I posted another fennel salad this past summer. This one is slightly different, but just as good.

Serves 4-6.

Baked Garlic Chicken served with Bacon Mashed Potatoes and Beet-Arugula Salad

This chicken recipe I got from Marc's mom. She made it one night with baked potatoes and I nearly died. It was amazing. So after raving about it, she gave marc and I the spices so I could make it. So sweet! Like most recipes, this was told to me verbally so I'm sure that I don't make it exactly the same way...which is probably why it never turns out as good as when she makes it.

Tonight I decided that I wanted to use up some of the random things in my fridge like basil, heavy cream and bacon, soooo.....I made rather unhealthy mashed potatoes to go with the meal. I also made a beet-arugula salad. But other than the potatoes, the meal is really healthy. Serious food for fall!

This dish serves about 4.
