In case you hadn’t noticed…

…I cook a lot!

I wanted to give a heads up that I have not only updated, but hopefully improved the method by which recipes are stored and organized on this blog – the Recipes Index. The list of recipes was getting rather long, so I opted to make more specific categories for ease of use. I also highlighted vegetarian recipes by making their text green. It is assumed that muffins, doughnuts, and dessert items are vegetarian, however. 😉

The categories currently include:

  • Dips, Hummus, and Salsa
  • Other Appetizers and Starters
  • Entrees – Chicken
  • Mexican
  • Indian
  • Entrees (Other)
  • Seafood
  • Vegetarian Entrees
  • Pasta Dishes
  • Risotto
  • Pizza
  • Chili
  • Vegetables and Vegetable Sides
  • Crock Pot
  • Soups
  • Salads
  • Breads, Rolls, and Doughs
  • Dessert – Cakes
  • Dessert – Cookies
  • Dessert (Other)
  • Popsicles, Ice Cream, Sorbet, and Slushes
  • Breakfast
  • Baked Doughnuts
  • Muffins
  • Beverages, Coffee, Cocktails, Smoothies, and Shakes
  • Miscellaneous

So hopefully that tidied things up a bit and recipes are easier to access for you, dear reader! 😀

I biked to the farmer’s market this morning — 10 miles round trip — and got a head of lettuce and some gorgeous beets. It’s a beautiful day in central Ohio…so pretty, in fact, that I’m also going to head out for a run after hitting “Publish!”

This afternoon I would like to make some marinara from scratch — tomatoes from a local farm were $0.99/lb this week and we have a half-empty bottle of wine. Meant to be? I think so.

(Really Random) Question: Do you like chili? Do you think I should run a second annual Chili Contest in honor of the quickly approaching college football season?

Happy Saturday!

    Just so you know, I plan to stalk the Mexican category like a crazy person. You post the best Mexican recipes.
    And yes, chili recipes are always a good idea.

    Despite the fact that this season (and probably the next few) just WON’T be the same without our beloved Buckeye coach, I think a chili contest is in order for you again. I mean..you’re competitive, and you make some great chili..so why not?!

    I haven’t been to one farmers market this year. I’m so mad! They are all during the time I work, accept for one on Mondays, which is about 25 minutes away…ugh. I wish I could just get on my bike and ride to one! So neat.

    Absolutely to the chili contest! I have made last year’s winning recipe into a vegetarian option and need to win again!

      No kidding! I thought maybe people had gotten “chili-ed out” but maybe not ๐Ÿ™‚
