Mirepoix: my life in food
I’m starting a new special feature today. It’s called Mirepoix: my life in food and I will be combining food and photography in this new feature.
Food is such an important part of our lives, it’s more than just necessary for survival. For me, cooking is one of the ways I express myself. It’s also a way to bring family and friends together and to nurture each other. So many of the important milestones and moments of our lives also involve food…going out for a special dinner to celebrate a new job, summer BBQ’s, picnics with our special someone, making s’mores on the family camping trip and on and on and on.
For this feature, I will focus more on the why of the food than the how of the food. I may share an occasional recipe, but I will mostly be sharing the special moments and memories that made the food possible as well as having some fun too!
Look for this new feature to appear every couple of weeks. I hope you enjoy.
Heart -shaped Devil’s Food cake was made for Indie Fixx Jr.’s birthday last week. We had a family party to celebrate and everyone ate this beautiful cake…even thought it was dry as hell! That’s family for you.
These are made from a recipe I adapted from one my Grandmom gave me…Im not sure where she got it from…and they include everythign but the kitchen sink, including: unsweetened peanut butter, oats, raisins, walnuts, sunflower seeds, O’s breakfast cereal, whole wheat flour, dark choc chips and more. I use only 1/4 cup of sugar to make these, so they really are cookies you can eat for breakfast….well, except the chocolate chips! The mister loves ‘em.
Banana Bundt Cake because Jr. wanted bananas and them she proceeded not to eat any of them!
Lentil soup, which everyone is my house loves, made from this recipe.
