I am NOT a food blogger...nope!
I leave that up to the very talented Ree, Cathy, Erin, Anne + others:)
But I really DO enjoy cooking
(sometimes more than others)
and I especially like to try new things...
last week it was an apple pie
made from our very own heirloom and some other apples,
a roasted veggie salsa.
By the way, did you notice the TERRIBLE lighting in our kitchen?
It is reason #1 why I am happy to NOT be a food blogger
and reason # 365 why I would love to have a skylight there
(alas my husband hates skylights...
they leak he points out, being a practical man).
Reason #2 for not being a food blogger...
well the photo above is only showing you part of the apple pie on purpose
(it has to do with Aimee not following the exact directions for the pie crust
and--perhaps--letting it brown a wee bit too much in areas).
But even if the pie didn't look perfect,
it was very, very tasty
and the overly browned areas--
well they provided me with a quick snack before dinner.
The salsa, too, was heavenly--
the scent of roasting garlic, peppers, sweet onion and tomatoes
filled the air of the countryside and our home with sweet cooking love...
but peeling the poblano chile pepper--
well that is reason #3 I am happy to leave food blogging to others.
I am quite comfortable with my decision NOT to be a food blogger...
and VERY, VERY grateful to those that are for all the inspiration they give me:)
On the 'to do' list for this week-
an apple crostada
and possibly a pumpkin baking mix I've had for awhile.
I am still working on building up courage to make my first biscotti--
I bought one at a farm store this summer that was quite heavenly and
I am determined to somehow recreate it.
What's on your cooking to-do list?
