Braised Brisket and Roots

Oh man. This good. That's all I can say. It came from Eating Well in Season: The Farmers' Market Cookbook by Jessie Price and the Editors of Eating Well. It was published in 2009. This meal took a long time to cook, but it was super quick to prepare! It was full of flavor and I will probably make this many more times. It was under the winter recipes part of the book, but that didn't stop me!

Apartment Garden!

I love fresh ingredients! We usually go to the Farmer's Market, but this year I wanted to attempt to grow my own! I went to Home Depot and bought all of the things I needed to do so! Including items to build a shelving unit to hold them! I had no idea what I was doing, but when I got there the employees were so helpful! I told them the basic idea I had for the shelf and they helped me design it. We gathered all of the appropriate materials including wood, a drill, screws and planting items and headed home!

Vegetable & Steak Fajitas with "Killed" Jalapenos (Fail)

This recipe was found in the May 2011 Cooking Light Magazine on page 89. The recipe is fairly simple but I did not care for it all that much. I don't think it had enough flavor. There seemed to be something missing. Although I did not like the meal, I wanted to share the recipe. I think that everything I try (and document) should be shared regardless of if it was a success or not.

Bumper Sticker Magnets!

This isn't a food related post, but it does have to do with the kitchen! I feel like I never have enough magnets on the fridge in the kitchen. We had a few bumper stickers lying around the house that I had wanted to make into magnets. They could be used in the kitchen or put on the back of your car!

Nifty Jars!

I bought jars for $12 at a department store. They were plain and it had no indication on what was inside! I decided to buy sticky chalkboard material and make "signs" for the jars.
