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’?
