pancakes for dinner

it's always fun to switch things up from time to time. my little one loved it. we had a combination of these two recipes that follow, the apple pancakes with whole wheat flour and quinoa flour, topped with the nutty topping of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and sliced almonds.

some new recipes that caught my eye:

butternut squash lasagna by giada de laurentiis
pasta with butternut squash from apartment therapy

roasted delicate squash salad over at chow

for desserts, I came across this super amazing blog honey & jam. Don't you just love the name, you have to check this one out.

so, i'm hungry. it's late at night. i am search for some recipes and trying to plan out some meals. dictating a certain meal for a certain day of the week did not work, but the meal planning is coming along.

i get inspired by watching cooking shows. and a new food magazine has helped inspire me. it was on super-easy italian meals and $10 meals. i also need to invest in some wholesome, simple, natural cookbooks. what's are your favorite book cooks?

Vegetable Love by Barbara Kafka and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison are great! We are not vegetarians but those are the two books in my collection that I return to again and again. For pure escapism (and good recipes) Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid's travel cookbooks are beautiful.
