What's Been Cookin'

Banana Oat Pancakes topped with strawberries. I make these quite often but wanted to post this pic because I ended up making the oat flour from scratch. It's very simple ... just use regular rolled oats, place it in the food processor and grind. Voila! Homemade oat flour!

Grilling up some veggies. My MIL brought over some green(!) & purple eggplant ... I'm now obsessed. Yum! Yum! These grilled veggies include eggplant, summer squash, zuchinni, butternut squash & onions.

Garlic Sesame Soba Noodles ... I just used regular mushrooms instead of Oyster Mushrooms ... just as tasty I think.

I made these cupcakes for AAH's birthday. They are a white cake with fudge chocolate frosting. ("My Favorite Cupcakes" from The Kind Diet).

Tofu Stir Fry with Soba Noodles. OMG! Sooooo good! I got this recipe from my friend Sarah, who found it in her P90X recipes. It is one of my favorite dishes I've made so far. The recipe only calls for broccoli & onions but I added eggplant (new favorite!), squash & mushrooms. Delicious!

What is a post without an adorable shot of my boy, Joey? Look at that face!

Can I have some more mom?

The new planter box that AAH made for me ... just filled it today with Basil, Cilantro, Parsley & Mint.
