Roasted Granulated Garlic

I got this image fromhere
I didn't realize until I allowed myself to run low on my roasted granulated garlic to what extent that I had become dependent on it. Okay I realize the stars will not fall out of the the sky if I ran out. While the world will not come to an apocalyptic end , I feel like Superman getting a gynormous dose of Krptonite . I've lost my culinary superpower.  Just to recap I stopped using salt about 2 years ago when an emergency room visit revealed that I was headed, at top speed, for a life of hypertyension.
Equally worse is having to live in a place I like to called BLANDVILLE,USA.  See in BLANDVILLE  they don't use salt,butter or whatever ingredient you think makes your food pleasant not just edible.  I began to research websites likemy recipes and took advantage of their nutrition search feature. I looked at how to use herbs and spices differently. I have to say the roasted granular garlic was a large part of my transition.  My food started having a more robust flavor.  I wasn't missing salt as much.  I even began keeping chopped garlic on hand.  I admit I am spoiled.  I do like imported olive oil and handmade pasta from Italy ( hence the name of this blog:) )  It gave me an excuse to take my monthly pilgrammage to HEB'S Central Market.  I rely on public transportation and it's an hour and 20 min going so I haven't had as much time but hopefully I will before Thanksgiving

Kitchen redo or my fascination with Coca cola

I dont know whether I should happy or a little sad that this redo is making me almost giddy with happiness. I need something it's all mine.  At the risk of sounding selfish. I have to be all things for many people. Student, mom, and volunteer. Here in my little corner of earthly paradise I can be just me. So I guess I will embrace this:).

Got coca cola?

I ordered this about a week ago.Thank you Amazon. My kitchen is small but a shot of red is making the difference. Good thing I really like coke. Didn't think I would be one of those women with a themed kitchen. I have learned to never say never.



About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
