  1. Wow, someone has been busy in the kitchen. It all looks wonderful - food that is just what my husband and I love - healthy and vegetarian. How about you ship me down some of the gratin with the goat cheese?

  2. Oh man, everything looks so good! I wish could make squash soup, but my husband hates squash. I do make vegetabley meals for myself for lunch though, when he is too far away to scrunch up his nose. :)

    Any chance you might share your soup recipe sometime? I'm also curious if there is a technique to making fritatta, or is it just whatever you want thrown into some beaten eggs? Bacon and kale sound wonderful with the eggs. I'll have to try that some time.

    1. Hi Laura Jeanne (:

      I know how our husband feels honestly; I have always hated squash! But this squash soup is yummy, and every single one of my kids will eat it, which is something of a miracle (-; Anyway, here is a link to the recipe!

      And about frittatas, I am fairly new to making them. They can be very simple to make though. I got my basic recipe here:

    1. Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by. I just posted the squash soup online so you can see it here:

      The top soup is actually just the same creamy-looking one from the other pictures, but before I blended it.

      Thanks so much for visiting (:

  4. Ooo what beautiful and yummy looking food you make! Wish I could come by for a bite!
    Then I have an odd question - do you wash your eggs in water or vinegar (12%)? I Just remember that my parents used to wash them in vinegar since then the shells natural protective .. um.. surface.. stayed on them so they lasted longer. Maybe it's just something to do with hens over here, I don't know :D. I might be just annoying and pointing sticks at you, but I just wondered! :) really! :D

      We just use water - I have read up a bit on the vinegar but I can't find any solid proof that it works better. We don't even wash our eggs half the time, if they look clean anyway. If vinegar really helps to keep the protective coating (called bloom) intact, that would be awesome! I will research it more. Thanks (: xo
