Sharing My Recipes, My Life, And The Food Tale Of Two Cities

Well, I guess I should get somewhat personal about my life. When I met Steve, I never imagined that I would ever meet my soul mate. But you know what they say “never say never”. We do everything together now that both of our children are grown and on their own.

I guess this is what people always say about the next chapter in your life. Steve supports me in this venture to start a food blog. He calls it my hobby. I’m not sure if a hobby is how I would describe describing documenting recipes. He’s can also be my harshest critic. He’ll let me know how he feels good or bad about a dish. After all, I do use him as a guinea pig to test my recipes and he’s a willing sport.

Lucinda, my neighbor is a photographer and took some pictures of us at the Lake Eola downtown. I thought I would share them.

I do not like whole wheat pasta, but it’s good for you so I’m trying in incorporate it into our diet. I think it has a weird taste, I mean when you grow up eating what you’re familiar with change is hard. Well, I’ve been experimenting with it and found that if I mix in some basil pesto, I like it so much more. Steve has turned me on to smoked turkey sausage and I just love it. It has great flavor and is leaner meat which translates to healthier. So anyway I’ve come up with a recipe that is definitely a “roller coaster in your mouth”. I use diced butternut squash, asparagus, and San Marzano tomatoes, shallots, garlic, and a diced yellow bell pepper. Oh, and of course some red pepper flakes just for some kick. When the pasta is cooked I mix in some basil pesto so the hot pasta melts the pesto and some Parmigiano-Reggiano. Β The grilled smoked sausage with all these veggies over the pesto whole wheat pasta makes you feel so good after eating this dish. Olive oil and a little chicken stock are all you need to get this started.
