It’s finally here! The 100th post of this little cooking blog. (Only took me six years plus a couple months. I’m making a mug that reads, “#1 Negligent Blogger.”) Naturally, it has to be a good recipe, which is why this meatloaf is wrapped in bacon…Okay, so maybe I didn’t know about this 100th blog … More Bacon wrapped meatloaf. (100th post!)
My relationship with my local farmers market is back in bloom now that it has set up shop once again right down the street. The latest haul included carrots, radishes, zucchini, parsley, half-dozen farm fresh eggs, potatoes, beets, blueberries and small loaf pumpkin bread. Total cost: $24. While I was shopping I also sipped on … More Pocket salmon with carrot, parsley salad.

The potluck turned … More Potluck sans mayonnaise.
So it was Easter and I didn’t make potica. I plan on fixing that next week when I have a few days off. I’m a big fan of the blog Five And Spice written by a lovely woman named Emily. I like her unfussy approach to food. Although she admits to having a master’s degree … More Egg, sausage & inspiration.
