Kim’s Pumpkin Soup (via Heart Spoon)

Kim's Pumpkin Soup Last month’s cooking club was hosted by the lovely Kim, our lone vegetarian. One of my favorite cooking club conversations occurred thanks to her eating habits, (plus a few glasses of wine and some sheer honesty). Bianca: “Kim. To be honest, I didn’t know if I’d like you after I heard we had a vegetarian in the club. But I really do. You are fantastic.” Kim: “Thanks, Bianca. I’m happy I changed your mind.” Appropriately enough, her theme was a ve … Read More

Eggs Benedict (via )

good memories

Eggs Benedict Ever since trying eggs benedict for the first time at The Broken Yolk, I have wanted to try and make them at home.  I’m not even sure what it was specifically, but it was one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had!  I won’t say that my version was as good, or even close, but it was still fun to try!

PASSIONFRUIT!!! MY LOVE! Ecuador day 3: Cloud forest and Los Bancos (via a teatray in the sky)

Passionfruit baby. This post has pictures of my favorite, Passionfruit. That is just wonderful and makes my heart delight. 🙂

Ecuador day 3: Cloud forest and Los Bancos the best thing about being your own tour group is you get to choose exactly what you want to do and how much of it.  we spent a bit of the morning birding and left as soon as it started to slow down.  for a serious birder it would probably be considered a slow day, but for us we had a great time spotting feathered fellows, listening for calls, and trying to nab good photos of everything we saw.  after a quiet lunch at an overlook on the Rio Blanc … Read More
