New site, Bananas, Pasta, and Another cake

You may have noticed – I moved. Blogger has been making me crazy, and, I’m loving WordPress. Let me know what you think of the new blog! So far, I think I like the simplicity.

We’re ten weeks from the Last Frost, and I am itching to see some spring. Well, January certainly felt like spring, but I couldn’t plant anything. I’ve been ordering seeds like crazy. Today, an envelope from Cubits arrived in my post office box. It included butternut squash, moon and stars watermelon, moonglow tomatoes, and a surprise package of red salad bowl lettuce.


I had the privilege of making a birthday cake for an old friend’s daughter’s birthday. It was a simple yellow cake with chocolate frosting. What could go wrong?


with mini cupcakes to match:


Isn’t it cute? I’m loving the polka-dots.

Its been a while, and I have a recipe for you. Well, I sort of have two recipes for you, but to call the second one a “recipe” isn’t completely accurate.


Lemony Whole Wheat Pasta with Spinach and Chickpeas

1can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1 package frozen spinach, thawed

juice 1 whole lemon

Whole Wheat Penne Pasta – amount is up to you, depending on the pasta to spinach/chickpea ratio you like

a few T grapeseed oil

Cook your pasta. Rinse and set aside. In large, deep pan, heat spinach and chickpeas through. Add lemon juice. mix well. Add pasta. Mix together. Drizzle oil over and mix well.

Eat. Its crazy-easy, and I don’t even mind coming home after a very long day of work to make it.

For dessert, I love keeping it simple, and I love eating fruit – I get my sugar fix without feeling guilty.


Slice a banana in to coins. Lay on plate. drizzle agave syrup on top. Sprinkle cinnamon over. drool. eat.
