Baked Brown Rice with Carrots and Coconut Milk

When I cook brown rice I bake it. It works better for me, plus am lazy anyway so I like popping things in the oven while I do other stuff. It rained here the whole day yesterday. There is still no sign of sunshine, but it’s a beautiful day with lots of birds chirping and building nests. I wish you a very pleasant day! Continue reading

Roasted Butternut Squash

How to Roast The Perfect Butternut SquashThe only thing I don’t like about butternut squash is the “peeling part” It takes me so long to do it. What do you use to peel butternut squash and how long does it take you?  I have one large butternut squash in my pantry right now. I bought it one week ago, and I keep postponing cooking it, because I have to peel it. I roasted this one sometime last year. It was delicous. Today is a lovely sunny day? How can I complain?? Have a pleasant week! Continue reading

Cream of Cucumber and Potato Soup

I made some cucumber and potato soup, yesterday, for lunch. I wanted a subtle soup without many additions so I only added some thyme, and topped the soup with grated mature cheddar cheese. I served it with some freshly baked sweet cornbread. There were no left overs so you can imagine what it tasted like. I hope you had a lovely Easter Weekend. Mine was quiet. Nothing special. I wish you a pleasant week! Continue reading

Basmati Rice with Corn and Peas

I prefer basmati rice because it’s easy to cook and it tastes awesome too. Winter has come to an end (hopefully). I saw a forecast for snow for sometime next week and almost hit the roof. How is the weather wherever you are? Ours is rain, rain, rain and some more rain, but the temperatures are awesome. I wish you are very pleasant week. Times are busy for me, so infrequent posting, every now and again.  Continue reading
