Cooking is fun. Eating is funner. I cook, photograph and write these recipes.
Everything I post on this blog I make from scratch using fresh wholesome ingredients.. I've been cooking since I was a little kid.

My recipes are based on trial and error, along with studying cookbooks, family recipes, blogs and cooking shows.

Some of the veggies and herbs I use are grown in my garden. Yay sustainability!
I'm working on making my yard into an edible landscape. It's really fun to go out in the garden and pick your veggies for dinner!
I'm helping as many people as I can to plant edible gardens in their yards too. It's hard work but it's really fun!

    Organic Sweet Potato and Black Bean Empanadas

    Yum! I made these delicious vegetarian empanadas yesterday to take to my friend Rachel’s birthday party. They were a big hit! Empanadas make great party food because you can serve them at room temperature, no utensils required, and you can make a lot of empanadas for very little money. Also, the organic veggies inside are really healthy and delicious. 

    Heat a large skillet to medium high, add 2 tblsp olive oil, 1 large diced sweet potato, 1 small diced onion, 1 diced carrot, 2 diced celery stalks and salt & pepper. Saute until the veggies start to soften, about 6 - 7 minutes. Add 1 ear of organic corn, cut fresh off the cob, 2 minced garlic cloves and 1/2 red bell pepper, diced. Season with celery salt and pepper, 1/4 tsp coriander powder, 1/2 tsp ancho chili powder, a sprinkle of red chili flakes, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, and a small bunch of fresh chopped cilantro. Cook all of this together for another 3 or 4 minutes and turn off the heat. Add 1 can rinsed and drained organic black beans and 1/4 cup golden raisins.  Transfer to a bowl and cool in the fridge for 20 minutes or more.

    For the pie crust, use your favorite pie crust recipe. I used frozen pie crust*. Roll and cut into large circles, add a teaspoon or so of the filling to the center of each pie crust circle, pinch and roll the edges and shape them into half moons.

    Place on a buttered cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes.

    * I used frozen pastry crust from TJ’s. They come in a box in two rolls and you just thaw them out on the counter for an hour or so, and roll them a little bigger on your counter or cutting board.  I usually like to make pastry crust from scratch, but I had a lot of work to do yesterday, so I just used frozen.
