30 day photo challenge: day 30 {ceviche is back!}

I did it! Reached the last day of the 30 day photo challenge and finished it off in style… hamachi ceviche, nikkei style with ponzu and shishito peppers. This was a nice way to end the day and an even better accompaniment to a cold […]

The ladies go crazy for fresh greens. These are radish tops and some lettuce- an all-you-can-peck salad bar.

Apple and walnut coffee cake for dessert and breakfast. Equally good as either meal, but fantastic with coffee. I’ll be having this for b’fast tomorrow morning to celebrate the end of a long week.

I made salsa from poblano chiles plucked from the garden that we grilled the other day. It’s been a long time since I made my own salsa and now I can’t believe I was so lazy for so long! Home made salsa is the best. […]

Yet another great find in KC. To be fair, this is not my photo, but K sent it to me after discovering it on the way out of town. Good thing the GPS had him turn on this street or else we would never have known this gem exists.  I love this urban garden and all the vegetables that are growing here! I hope my garden is this abundant one day.

Fried green tomato appetizer and glasses of sauvignon blanc on the rocks. Yes, I requested ice in my glass of wine because dining alfresco in heat and humidity warms a glass of whatever you’re drinking with a quickness. These fried tomatoes and spinach cream sauce […]

My favorite chocolates in the world! When in KC, we make it a point to to stop by, multiple times. The butterscotch bourbon (right & left middle row) is super fantastic.

This photo was taken during a leisurely stroll down the Riverwalk at Country Club Plaza (Kansas City, MO). I am especially fond of taking reflection photos and this one reminded me of a watercolor piece, serene and quiet.

Shuttlecocks in the Nelson-Atkins Sculpture Park (Kansas City, MO). It’s a beautiful day, but it’s also an oppressive 90+ degrees and humid.
