Seriously Craving...

Last night I dreamed about cheesecake. Not just any cheesecake - Hot Fudge Cheesecake. It's a recipe that I've made one time before, long before I started my blog. A fudgy chocolate cheesecake baked in a saltine-and-walnut crust, served with a rich hot fudge sauce. Pure decadence, I tell you! I dreamed that I was making sure I had all the ingredients, and I was looking at the picture on the recipe and seriously longing for this cheesecake. In my dream I knew it was just a dream, and I knew that as soon as I woke up I would be looking up the recipe to make sure that I could make it!

Now I'm craving it. I checked and we have all the ingredients except enough chocolate chips. And you can bet your boots that as soon as we buy more chocolate chips, I'll be making that super incredible cheesecake and posting it up here! We're doing our grocery shopping tomorrow, so it won't be long. :-)

Also craving - pickled beets and eggs. Gonna buy beets too and I'll make that and post it.

Oh, I'm so excited about fulfilling these super delicious cravings!!! Isn't pregnancy fun?

p.s. Got to hear the baby's heartbeat today. So exciting, teehee! I think that put me in a good mood, because reading through this post I think I sound positively giddy.

Excused Absence

It's not like me to not post in over a week. I usually do something new every few days - I'm really big on trying new things and remembering old favorites, and sharing everything we eat with the blogging community.

But it's really hard to do when morning sickness makes me want to eat nothing but macaroni and cheese, boiled or fried eggs, and breath mints. And makes me turn my nose up at my perennial favorites like cakes, cookies, pies, brownies, and other baked goods.

Yes, dear readers - I'm pregnant! I'm about six weeks along, and struggling with morning sickness and fatigue, the combination of which has been keeping me out of the kitchen. Jeff takes care of most of the meals now, and even if we do eat something blog-worthy, I don't have the energy to take pictures and post it! Kind of frustrating, but I know eventually I'll regain my energy and desire to cook. Until then, here's a few favorites that we have actually prepared and eaten in the past few days. They are easy and delicious, and actually palatable to my pregnant taste.

Hot tuna salad - we've made this several times since I posted it, and I love it more every time! This was our dinner tonight.

Egg drop soup - super simple, delicious, and easy on the stomach.

Garden saute with pasta - using canned tomatoes and cheap Mexican squash, this was a very easy dish to prepare.

Homemade salsa - the local Hispanic market had cilantro on sale, so we added some to the salsa and it was so fantastic! Cilantro really makes a salsa that much more special. I was craving chips and salsa and this totally hit the spot.

I don't know when I'll be up for posting regularly again. I do have a universal quiche recipe that we made a while ago and I already took pictures and everything. Maybe I'll muster up some energy and post that in the next little while. Until then, check out the recipes, they're some of my personal favorites (especially that hot tuna salad - it's awesome!).
