This has me in the mood to cook all the day long:
So, this past week, I made some homemade ricotta gnocchi with asparagus, peas and morels. Just seemed like the right thing to do this time of year.
The flavors are so reminiscent of spring, plus it was so quick and easy that it allowed me to enjoy the lovely weather and some time with these two:
I also concocted this funny, but delicious, little breakfast. I kind of just pulled a bunch of odds and ends out of the refrigerator and “voila”, ended up with a bowl of rice with scallions, spinach, and kimchi topped with an over easy egg. If, like me, you struggle to find a simple savory breakfast, look no further.
And, to top it off, I got to work on a photo shoot for work, which is one of my favorite things to do. Rebecca and I decided it was time for a new promo card to showcase our lovely “Joyful Cakes”, dessert tables and event favor boxes. So, we came up with the palette, overall aesthetic, sweets assortment and all of the other details and spent half the day photographing all of our pastry chef, Ayumi’s, lovely work. I would say my job is not a bad one.
