I’ve started seeing shisito peppers on a lot of menus recently. So when my husband was at Trader Joe’s and spotted a bag, he picked some up, and I decided to put my own spin on a version we had at a tapas restaurant a few weeks ago. Shisito peppers are one of those adrenaline snacks. I hear that about…
Friday was my birthday. While I had a lovely evening with my husband grabbing drinks, appetizers, and seeing a wonderful ballet, I did not get cake or blow out candles. So the next morning, I decided to make myself a cake. And because I didn’t want to be left with an entire cake to nibble from all day, I wanted to make one serving only. And because it was morning, and breakfast and I love this flavor- I decided lemon poppy seed was it.
Last Tuesday, our refrigerator broke.
Luckily, we have a backup in the basement, but it is small and got filled to capacity with practically our condiment selection alone. Needless to say, I did not go to the grocery store for additional produce to squeeze into the remaining space.
Before I go any further than the title, let me be clear: my son, like many other little kids, loves his treats and sweets. And he doesn’t look at a salad and think “I’ve been wanting that all day! Thanks, Mommy!”
