But I'm working on it. It's taking a while to figure this all out, being new to blogs and blogging and having not much computer knowledge. I don't know what I'm doing. I just make up stuff as I go. Cooking too. Let it be noted that I am no chef, no expert in the culinary field. I post recipes of things I made that are good (I don't post ones that didn't work out haha, but maybe I should.) I throw in a little of this and a little of that, and voila! My boyfriend likes these meals. Though I take inspiration from other recipes or restaurant meals, these dishes are my own creation (unless otherwise noted). I look forward to developing what exactly I am doing in the culinary field, where I am going with this, and I invite you to watch me keep making up stuff as I go!
So far, most of my dishes are healthy, using fresh, seasonal, and as much as possible organic ingredients. I believe in real food, not canned, chemically injected, pesticide ridden, mass produced 'food'. You'll find I often make gluten free dishes- I do not have celiac disease, but my step-dad does, and I think it's a healthier way of living anyway. So I'll continue on, reforming my blog, tweeting away. I'll start a facebook page shortly as well so stay tuned!
Super Simple Heirloom Tomato Salad
This is so simple and easy I'm not sure I can call it a recipe. Just something I threw together real quick. Fresh, sweet, and juicy heirloom tomatoes are really what does it here- don't even bother if you have any other kind of tomato on hand.
3 Heirloom tomatoes, in different colors and sized for distinction on plate
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (plus little extra for drizzling)
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Mix balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and 1 tbsp fresh parsley together in bowl.
Slice tomatoes into 1/2 thick slices. Pour a little balsamic vinegar on plate. Layer 1 slice of each tomato on a dish, layering smaller slices on top of larger slices.
Drizzle with olive oil mixture.
