Get Cooking Thursdays


We just made lentil soup with poached eggs and paprika crème fraîche!!!

I go through food phases. The progression goes like this: vegetarianism, vegan, RAW, vegetarianism, pescetarianism, and now I find myself in the once-in-a-blue-moon-I-might-eat-bacon category. (Although I still can’t bring myself to buy or prepare it at home.)

After a long period of cooking boredom I found myself really craving wholesome, simple food. Isn’t there just something so satisfying and vital about putting a forkful of deliciousness in your mouth – especially if you made it yourself in your own kitchen?

Upon being seduced by a cookbook on my friend’s coffee table, I decided it was time to do something about my food block. I bought “La Tartine Gourmande: Recipes for an Inspired Life” by Beatrice Peltre. (Inspired life indeed!)

Me and my man have committed ourselves to eating better during the week, and with the help of this new cookbook we’ve finally been able to do it. I don’t know about you, but we get SO exhausted at the end of the day taking a big ol’ nap in the middle of the floor sounds downright irresistible. However, living a lackluster life is gross. Not to mention unacceptable. So, we really, really had to commit! The kind of commit that makes epic homemade meals happen…on a Thursday night…after a long day at work. That’s when the magic happens! So what’s cookin’ good lookin’?


About Nicole C.

Hi, I'm Nicole, and this is my story... After spending my entire adult life living in Los Angeles, I got a little antsy and did an 8 month stint in Austin Texas. I had some fun and earned some hard-won life lessons, but now I am back and I'm finally ready to call LA home. I just got married to a fun, sweet nerdy man last September, and we are going to start a family in the next little while. I'm a quirky artist who dreams of backyard dinner parties, crafting, cocktails and unicorns. I've also spent the last 15 years working in business administration, but it's time for a change. I am in the process of reinventing myself as a code princess, and launching myself into the much more promising and lucrative world of web development. I will settle for nothing less than the brightest of futures for me and my family, and I'm going to get there using my brains, determination, and Sass! Time to put on my big girl pants. Thanks for checking out my blog!
