Nothing Bundt cakes

I was handed a promotional coupon to Nothing Bundt Cakes, which got me map questing  the location because I wanted to go taste these cakes.

This boutique bakery is next door to a Target store.

It is full of pretty things that satisfy the eyes and heart.

The signature cakes look like this.

Want to have a stylish kitchen?

And look stylish while in it?

The items for sale are all about baking.

And these sweet thins are a perfect way to experience all the available flavor. Very good indeed.

My handy Tupperware empanada gadget was used yesterday.  I heard the call of the childhood empanadas made on occasion by my mother and set out to explore.  I always learn as I dive and swim in my projects and   take notes about things to improve.  The first batch had a meat filling and I used Philo Dough.

Next, something sweet.

Bok Choy

Bok Choy is a pretty cool vegetable.

It is easy to prepare and cook.  I usually stir fry it with a little something.  Here I used a few pieces of pork I had left over from a previous meal.  Really simple indeed.

Pasta and vegetables.

I have yet to learn to make a decent Alfredo sauce, so I just add a bit of milk to me sauteed base.
This is simply a combination of mushrooms, broccoli, and pasta.

As I watched a recent Oprah show I learned about Kathy and her Veganist lifestyle.

I came away with the drive to eat less meat and more fruits and vegetables.

It has been a few weeks now.  I enjoy my carrot/celery/apple juice that I make myself.  I can prepare a meatless sandwich on pumpernickel bread.  I have learned that I want to have a little meat here an there, and some animal products like cheese, milk, and eggs too.
So, I continue on my Viganish lifestyle...

Tupperware - High quality reusable solutions

My Tupperware party.

The guests.

 The product.

 Preparing to use the product.

Blending the frozen strawberries with the Quick Chef.

 Waiting for the ingredients to blend.

My first ever batch of home made strawberry jam.

Thinking about food is a time consuming affair.  I have to sneak that thinking into strategic chunks of time, sometimes right in front of the refrigerator.

Who am I cooking for?  Who likes fish? Who will eat the potatoes?  Did I cover all the family members so that no one is left without something to eat.  This dish covered everyone.  I love it all while others prefer one or two of the ingredients.  Salmon, potatoes, tomatoes.
