What's Cooking Today

Now that the demands of "The Maker's Diet" are over, cooking has been a little more sporadic in our home.  Between the chaos of work, school, an internship, senior projects, moving out, and so-forth, making time to cook elaborate meals has been a bit unrealistic.  Not to mention, waking up sick the other morning had me a bit out-of-sorts.  Nonetheless, as part of my mandatory resting today (Dr. Garrett's orders), I rented "Julie & Julia" and suddenly feel incredibly inspired to get cooking! 

Today's Menu:

Vegetable Bean Soup (with a heaping dose of heat, equivalent to Emerald's serving of spice, to kick this cold!)

Meat Spaghetti with garlic and mushrooms

Spiced Apple Muffins

And something fun for family visiting tomorrow:

Chocolate Raspberry Coconut Flour Cupcakes with a Chocolate Ganache Frosting (recipe courtesy of

Freezer/make ahead meals:

French Toast

Chicken Enchiladas

Chicken with my homemade Asian marinade for stir-fry

Oh, and I can't forget to mention... the other day I made pancakes with coconut flour!  VERY delicious and fluffy!  An excellent gluten-free recipe.  The only downside: it required a ton of eggs and didn't produce that many servings. 

Anyhow, if you're interested in any of these recipes, or recipes from a previous post, leave a comment to let me know : )  I'm off to the kitchen....

Bon Appetit!
