Get Cookin’ Thursdays!


Spring is here and it’s time  for more interesting salads! Everything is so fresh and beautiful right now! This week we went for page 183 of La Tartine Gourmande: Arugula salad with beets, radishes, shaved fennel and feta cheese. So satisfying and nutritious! We weren’t able to find any fresh hazelnuts, but it didn’t hurt the final result one bit. And fennel is always great in a salad. Yum!

I am also very excited about a fruit I didn’t know existed (one of my favorite things) until a couple of days ago: Champagne Mangoes. We just ate our first one just now. I would have posted a pic but I just couldn’t wait. It was SO delicious!!! It had a much more delicate flavor than the common mangoes you always see around. Damen picked it up from the grocery store the other night on a whim. What a delightful discovery. Thanks babe!!!

I hope you’re cookin’ something delightful in your kitchen tonight. Happy Thursday to you and thanks for reading!

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!
