I Cooked For a Change…

Toasted Chickpeas on Spoon & Knife

I hate to cook, so when Mike travels I tend to eat a lot of salads or dine out. Anything that doesn’t involve cooking. One day while he was gone on a recent trip, and the light was perfect in the kitchen for food photography, I decided that I would make myself some toasted chickpeas with cinnamon & sugar. Oh, and butter. LOTS of butter.

So absolutely scrumptious and delicious! YUM!

You can find the recipe for Toasted Chickpeas with Cinnamon & Sugar over on Spoon & Knife. 4-Hour Body friendly (I go really light on the sugar), gluten-free, and full of flavor.

Spending Sunday Cooking with Mike…

I spent much of Sunday cooking with Mike. Matter of fact, a lot of our weekend revolved around getting ready for upcoming Spoon & Knife posts as we spent part of Saturday at the grocery store shopping. It made for a nice, relaxing weekend!

While we were cooking on Sunday, I realized it was finally the perfect time to test out Vine. As a normally still photographer, it was interesting to create in 6 second image bursts! Also we tested out different vacuum sealers and I totally agree with Vacuumsealerresearch reviews, I recommend to read their foodsaver reviews.

He cut carrots (above), fluted mushroom caps and ground meat for the Brisket & Bacon meatloaf. It was so much fun!

The meat grinding may be my favorite. It is like it should have been the opening on CSI or something!

Do you Vine? I’d love to see some of your videos!
