Besides chasing my toddler, wearing shiny pants and blogging i love to cook. I am saving up to go to the Weber tech culinary school just so i can learn how to make more food to eat. I am a foodie hence my love of yelp and i don't think my family has any complaints. I try and make sure i make a good home cooked meal several days out of the week and i love to experiment. i have a complete inability to follow recipes and i love to substitute and make it my own. Last night i forgot to pull out the chicken breast from the freezer so i had to come up with a plan b for my chicken Parmesan. I had some eggplant that needed to be cooked and i really wanted to make Israeli couscous so i thought id play with an old eggplant parmeseana recipe i knew. Earlier in the week i got a bunch of tomatoes from a great produce sale and made some marinara sauce with yellow peppers and tons of garlic. I grilled the eggplant with onions and added the marinara sauce and put it on top of the Israeli couscous with some fresh Parmesan cheese. It was frigging delicious, i wish i had leftovers but ALAS with a good meal there are often no leftovers. Here are some pics and i would love to hear about and try out your favorite homemade recipes.
