I think that with all of the traveling that I have been doing lately, it makes me even happier to be able to spend time in the kitchen and try out new things.
I love making things that are simple, easy and fresh.
I am loving what I am finding these days at smittenkitchen.com
That's where I found this amazing pizza recipe with shaved asparagus and also the cauliflower with rasins, capers and almonds. Nothing is better than exploring the farmers market, popping into the wine shop and spending some time in the kitchen. Cooking is relaxing to me. I can't explain the feeling that I get when I am alone and being creative.
This is just what I made a few nights ago. I tend to make things are simple. I tried making my own pizza dough (check out this recipe for a 2 hour rise time).
My favorite dressing these days: 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a crushed fresh garlic clove, salt/pepper, 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon of sherry vinegar.
What have you been cooking this summer?
