Yes, I really do cook.

I'm in a mood. I really wish I wasn't. Yesterday, I did some errands with my mom and did some Christmas shopping. It was fun and relaxing and I finally finished my Christmas shopping for Andy! But for some reason, I am in a funk today.

I wish I could explain more but unfortunately someone is reading my food blog and I do not want that person knowing what's up quite yet. Vague enough for you?


Ok, here are the eats I've created over the last 2 weeks. Green bean casserole. With fresh green beans, ricotta cheese, summer squash and homemade mushroom gravy. It was time-consuming but so worth it. I did include the traditional french-fried onions. They were good!


Turkey burger on whole wheat bread. Boring picture, awesome turkey burger.


Kerrygold cheddar really made these turkey burgers. This cheese is so sharp and creamy. YUM!


Fontina, tomato and asparagus frittatas. I've made this frittata before


Peanut butter, banana and flax toast!


It was a good recovery meal after an intense workout.


Gingerbread latte and starbucks oatmeal. This oatmeal is ok...a little watery for my taste though.


The best butter on the planet.


With herb-crusted pork loin and mashed potatoes. (The butter is in the mashed potatoes. I used 1 tbsp and made 4 servings.)


My mock Thanksgiving day meal. Cranberry-apple sauce, roasted butternut squash with brown sugar, turkey cutlets and a hawaiian roll.


For the butternut squash, I sliced up half a squash into cube shapes and coated them in 1 tsp olive oil, 2 tsp honey and 1 tbsp brown sugar. Tossed to coat and roasted in the oven at 400* for 25 minutes.


For the cranberry-apple sauce, I boiled 1 cup water and 1/2 white sugar. Then added 2 sliced honey crisp apples and 1 bag cranberries. Continue to boil until cranberries pop and release their natural pectin. This sauce WAS SO GOOD! I liked the sauce more than anything else.

So I've got to ask, do you have any cyber stalkers or unwanted guests reading your blog? How do you deal with it? I've decided to let them read and enjoy...maybe they really like cooking?

Also...have you ever heard of Butternut squash (Cucurbita moschata) dermatitis? It's a contact dermatitis from cutting up butternut squash? I noticed in last night when my hands got all dry, yellow and waxy feeling. It's gone now luckily but how weird is that? I googled, "hands feel weird after cutting butternut squash," and found tons of blog posts about it. WEIRD!

If someone is bothering you, you can probably have their IP address blocked. I know you can do that with wordpress but I am not sure about with blogger.

Google can find anything! Yikes, I don't think anyone reads my blog that I'm uncomfortable with. That would be an interesting situation to be in. Good for you for taking the high road.

Ha my comment was going to be "Oh what is the recipe for the Cranberry Applesauce?" but then I kept reading and there it was! that sounds soooo good...I am printing that out =)

I hate when I'm in a funk. It throws my entire day off.

OMG, that cheese!!! I am going to have to find it.

It's weird, I had a meet up with some food bloggers - one in particular who is a bit overweight and doesn't hide the fact that she's trying to lose weight, she has a whole page about it.

In any event, she says she gets comments all the time telling her what a fat ass she is, and if she wanted to lose weight, she shouldn't eat what she posts!

Sorry I can't help! :D

You're right, that butter IS the best butter ever!! :)

I don't know if anyone uber-creepy reads my blog, but all of my family reads it, so I can't be all inappropriate like I tend to be on it!

Sorry you were in a funk- I was like that all week until I woke up today and it went away!

You've left me craving a Thanksgiving meal!!

Sorry you're in a funk...I have those days sometimes, fresh air helps a lot. But it sounds like it's someone, so I hope you work it out with them...

oh yum, I love gingerbread lattes, I'd have to say the peppermint mocha is my favorite. I had a decaf one at Peets the other day.
I hope you feel better soon.

i am such a lucky man.

That casserole might have been labour intensive but it looks super good. So does the frittata! I love anything with eggs in it :-)

If your cyber stalkers know they are annoying you, reading what you said in that last post might get the message across! Hopefully it will!

yum, that casserole sounds awesome!

and yay for that butter :)

I was wondering about that weirdness on my hands after cutting butternut squash. It's happened to me before and is so strange!

I get that right away with b-nuts and I hate it! It leaves my hands sticky yuck and the b-nut feels all slippery as I cut it.

Love the eats girl, they look amazing! Mushroom cream sauce does take time but you're right, totally worth it.

Mmm, gingerbread latte is my favorite! I just cashed in my coins at a Coinstar for some starbucks cash so I can get some before they're gone. :)
And to answer your music post...I remember my "breakup song" in high school was "Insensitive" from Bed of Roses. As for songs that make me happy....there's a bluegrass version of "I Saw the Light" by the David Crowder Band on Youtube - I can't help but feel happier after hearing it. :)
