My Week in Food

Lemon Yogurt Cake / Mom's Kitchen Handbook

Started the week off on a sweet note since we were assigned dessert for a family potluck. With strawberry season in full swing (hope that’s the case where you are, too), I crowned this lovely Lemon Yogurt Cake with plenty of berries and a spoonful of yogurt cream. Delish.

Creamy Green Walnut Shape

The next morning I needed a power breakfast, since it was Day One of a six-day photo shoot for my cookbook. This Creamy Green Walnut Shake did the trick (I subbed in mango for pear and didn’t bother to strain the walnuts through a cheesecloth, just tossed the water and walnuts into the blender). 

Breakfast BLT / Mom's Kitchen Handbook

Then it was full-speed launch into photo shoot mode, starting with a breakfast BLT. 
Virginia and PopsFollowed by a Raspberry Breakfast Pop (modeled by Virginia with the talented Erin Scott behind the camera).

Huevos Rancheros / Mom's Kitchen HandbookAnd a big pan of Huevos Rancheros.

Kitchen Props

When the shoot was over, I was left with scrumptious props, but no desire for serious cooking for a few days.

Speedy Tostadas / Mom's Kitchen HandbookWhich meant simple tostadas with beans, slaw, and sriracha.

Salmon Curry / Mom's Kitchen Handbook

A salmon curry using the no-brainer instructions on the my jar of Thai Kitchen red curry paste.

After School Snack / Mom's Kitchen Handbook

And no-fuss after school snacks.

Avocado Baked Egg and Salad / Mom's Kitchen HandbookBy mid-week I started to get my groove back and tried this baked- egg-in-an-avocado number. Conclusion:  it’s pretty cute, but I prefer my eggs warm and my avocados cold.

Blackberry Chia Jam/ Mom's Kitchen Handbook

Next week I’m thinking this Blackberry Chia Jam is looking pretty tasty. The chia seeds do the job of pectin and make for quicker cooking.
