J&B's Random Eats of Late

As you can probably imagine, while I was still cooking before the wedding, blogging about cooking or trying many new, complicated things wasn't really on my agenda. I did, however, photograph some of the food - just random things I threw together or things I am playing with for Selina and I's cookbook, so I thought I'd share 'em.

My take on Wasabi-Tempura Asparagus (and button mushrooms!) from Vegetarian Planet. I served it with a sweet and spicy peach-soy-chile sauce.

A radish salad inspired by a recipe from the awesome Callina.

Simple and tasty corn and tomato salad.

A new and improved recipe for Pico de Gallo.

A black bean and rice stuffed omelette with tomatoes, onions, garlic, chiles, and cilantro.

Brett's bowl of goodness (eaten with tortilla chips) - cilantro-lime rice, black beans, cheese, guacamole, radish salad, and corn salad.

Drunken beans Take 1!

This was really easy, and Brett simply adored it: sliced portobellow mushrooms, black olives, spinach, cumin, salt, pepper, a splash of lime and Mexican pepper cheese.

I got some pictures of the container garden today, and some market pictures from yesterday I will post at some point, after I post the CoMo honeymoon pictures. Whew!

There is a lot of stuff to post about!

'Til next time.

Oh, Man! I'm seriously drooling down here. The bad news is I think we have our extra rooms rented out so you can't move in and share... But oh, how I would love some of your tasty dishes!

Everything looks so good! The corn and tomato salad and the pico de gallo look especially amazing! Don't you need some recipe testers, lol!?

Oh, I'm so glad you're doing a cookbook! I always thought you should with all your amazing Mexican recipes!

Heather - Hehehehehehe. On no! Just when I was coming around to the idea of bigger being better and being a Texan! ;-)

Courtney - Thank you very much. Hahaha, we will definitely need testers. Hopefully we will be ready to go with the testing by the first of the year.

Living in a Local Zone - The radish salad was really simple, I just grated the radishes, minced up some chiles, onion, garlic, cilantro, used some lime juice and salt and pepper. It isn't much to talk about on it's own, but added to a quasadilla or used on top of a burrito, it is fantastic.

Bianca - Well I figured with all the folks that seem to enjoy the food here on the blog that it would be fun to try. I've always wanted to do something like this as I am very passionate about local Mexican vegetarian food, I just didn't think my recipes were good enough. I guess I'll find out, eh?
