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!

Parmesan Crusted Kale, Leek and Potato Cakes with Red Quinoa and Meyer Lemon

This was my delicious lunch today. These were amazing! They kind of tasted like a healthy  version of tater tots, only better. This is one of those dishes where every bite you go, “Mmmh! Ohmygodisthisgood, mmmpfh” And then you eat it all. I’ve been trying to eat lots of nutritious food in order to be cured from a cold. The Kale in these crispy treats was grown in our back yard garden. I love growing winter vegetables. Rain + Seeds = Free Food.

For this dish I combined 3/4 cup leftover mashed potatoes with thinly chopped leeks (white and lightest green parts only, sliced in half first and rinsed to get rid of any sand and dirt, then sliced crosswise) and 2 cups blanched kale, which I rinsed in a mesh strainer then pressed out all the water from. I mixed this with 2 eggs, 1 minced garlic clove, 1/2 tsp dried dill, 1/2 tsp flour, and salt and pepper. I pressed the patties in a ring mold and then dusted them with a combo of bread crumbs and grated parmesan cheese before frying in butter & olive oil. I cooked red quinoa on the side, and dressed the whole plate with a giant squeeze of fresh Meyer Lemon juice, also from our back garden. These were so much more tasty than I thought they’d be. Did I mention that this was delicious?

Happy New Year Tumblrs! Please have the Best and Most Fun Year ever!
