Grilled Eggplant and Goat Cheese Salad

This is supposed to be a photo of blueberry pancakes.

You should be looking at a huge stack of juicy, golden blueberry pancakes, drizzled with a tantalizing stream of maple syrup.

Not a picture of grilled eggplant.

Garden Party

Just about two months ago, a strange and wonderful idea popped into my head. In the midst of preparing for finals, projects, and every other stressful evaluation that seems to coincide with that last month of the school year, I decided that it would be a fantastic idea to delve into the magical world of gardening.

Yes, gardening.

I garden now.

Gardening is cool.

Dr. Who geeks, name that reference!

Curried Wild Rice and Chickpea Salad

Wild rice and I share a checkered past. For a rather long time, we grappled with an unfortunate misunderstanding. Nothing complicated, nothing original, nothing that hasn’t happened to others in the past.

Simply put, I hated wild rice.

Birthday Giveaway!

*Update 6/8/11* The giveaway is officially closed.

La Kocinera is officially one year old!

I must have started, stopped, erased, and retyped this first sentence at least half a dozen times now. I simply don’t know where to begin in discussing the past year of my life. There have been ups and downs and squirrely loop-de-loops galore. In major ways, such as I’m no longer a Business major. And in minor ways, such as I no longer believe in flash photography for food.


Thank goodness.
