Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

My momma brought Jason and me a ton of tomatoes from her garden. I was overwhelmed with tomatoes, and though it was like 100 degrees out ( but to be fair maybe only 85 near me) this past week, I thought wouldn't tomato soup taste good? I've never made it before, but it sounded like something I could do.

Lemon Cupcakes!

My friend Barbara and I decided some time this summer to make lemon cupcakes. Why? Because a) I had hot pink and rainbow sprinkles! and b) why not?! We made these suckers like a week or two ago but I am only getting around to posting this because my work has turned into chaos where I spend 9-10 hours looking at two giant computer screens and the very last thing I want to do is stare at more computer screens when I get home. BUT it's finally the weekend and I can handle the computer again and bring to you a very tragic, but good ending to my cupcake story.

Pretty in Peach

Looks better than what my crappy camera can picture!

I've never really made anything pie or pie-crusted related before, and lately I've been seeing tarts everywhere on blogs. Rustic tarts look pretty and simple so I thought, why not give it a try? Plus, I am a new fan of buying fruits and veggies and even eggs from my local farmer's market. It's just down the street and open every Sunday.

Roasted Chicken

Week night cooking for me is peaks and valleys. Sometimes I'm really good about cooking dinner for Jason and I, and a dinner is prepared at home almost every night for a week. Then there are other times when I am forced to work late at work, or the dishes are dirty and need to be washed before making dinner or I am just lazy and in those weeks we eat out.
