{whatever wednesday – adjusting to my small kitchen}

11 Dec

hey friends.


{i just want to preface this by taking a moment to express my gratitude to the Universe for being ALIVE and well.  i had quite a scare last week and it has given me a whole new perspective on life…} 

as you may have noticed, i haven’t been writing as much over the last few weeks. i plan to update you on my life very soon… there have been even more changes 😉  but i haven’t been creating as many recipes lately.  for a few reasons, really… but fret not, creating and cooking and fotographing will recommence very soon.

part of it is becoming acclimated in my new mini kitchen.  as a reminder, this is what i’m working with :


i LOVE my tiny home, don’t get me wrong… i’m just trying to find my niche and the best way to cook as i fotograph… it is somewhat of a challenge right now. a few final changes are coming together in the kitchen, i just need to start coming up with recipes again.

part of the reason i haven’t been cooking and blogging as much is the fact that i changed jobs.  i used to work for whole foods market.  i can finally talk about it now.  i didn’t want to create a conflict of interest by blogging about me working there, out of respect for the corporation.

anyway, being around that amazing food every day was much more inspiring, and so since i’m not around it all the time, i haven’t been thinking about new creative foods as much.

However, that doesn’t mean i haven’t been in the kitchen eating!!!


i MUST try to recreate this dish.  it was a one-pot whimsical dinner with amaranth, sauteed mushrooms, onions, hint of maple syrup, butter, and spinach. there may be another veggie in there, but i honestly don’t remember… i just know it was SO FRIGGIN DELICIOUS!  and i want to try to play with amaranth again.


i made a pot of homemade beef stew last week. it happens to be one of my specialties… and also is one of my absolute favourite comfort foods.


i also made lots of things with this squiggly-sprouted volcanic garlic bulb.



how has your december been treating you so far?  and what comfort foods have you been making to stay warm?!
