Do You Need Food Inspiration?
Does Meal Prep and Cooking Inspire You?
Sometimes revving up to cook can be a bit of a struggle. Even though I have been an empty nester for some time, it still can be difficult to cook for two. Nothing makes me happier than having a crowd to cook for, and spending a day thinking about the food and recipes (yes, I am that person!).
When I was a very young mom cooking was something I could do with three children under my feet. Developing recipes was my happy, creative time. Our children were in the kitchen from a young age. My mother has a fond memory of stopping by our home and witnessing my oldest son, then 10, with perfect knife skills!
I used to get cooking magazines and pour over the pages filled with beautiful photographs of amazing food. I would study it and pick out my recipes, marking every page I wanted to come back to. I do not follow a recipe exactly, but love to take recipes “Up a Notch” as Emeril Lagasse used to say.
A few weeks ago we dined at a friend’s home, and she made a Quinoa Caprese Bake. Just the name makes you want to eat it, right? The combination of basil, tomato and cheese — yum! It was delicious, and my husband loved it. I asked for the recipe to make it at home.
On this link you can access my recipe: I added broccoli and spinach to give it extra phytonutrient power. It is gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan!
Do you get inspired by fast food, fried food, sugar and fattening food? Are you having trouble putting the fork down? Are you in a spiral of indulging and then self-incrimination?
