Roasted Carrots with Cardamom Butter

This is a healthy change from what I usually post about on my blog.  It is good to switch it up every once in a while.

I don't know if these are the healthiest carrots because the recipe does call for butter and oil.  All things in moderation, right?

Chai Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookies

Another day, another cookie recipe! I feel like Chai spiced things were the rage a couple of years ago.  I think I have eaten Chai spiced cupcakes and Chai spiced blondies.  

I am a big fan of chocolate chips cookies, so why not make them a little fancier with spices? They were tasty cookies, so it worked out.

Mincemeat Bar Cookie

I seem to have a problem posting recipes as much as I did in the past.  In the past, I would try and post a couple times a week.  That is a pretty intense schedule.  Now I post two or three times a month.  I don't have a problem with that, but I now have a backlog of food pictures.

I may need to start making old recipes again so I don't feel compelled to take pictures.  I took a break from making Thai food because I had made so many Thai curries.  I guess I need to pull out a few of my favorites and make them again.

Moroccan Beef Stew

It snowed today.  It is supposed to get up to the 50s tomorrow so it probably will not last long.  Many people worked from home because of the snow.  I went into work, and it was so quiet.  I had the place to myself.

In other exciting news, I saw the musical Wicked last weekend for the first time in my life.  I remember that a little over ten years ago it was so popular.

Ginger Cookies Dipped in White Chocolate

I made this cookies a during the holidays.  It has taken a while for me to post about them.  They are really more appropriate for Christmas, but I am sure they would still be delicious for Valentine's Day.

What makes these really special are the cool star shaped sprinkles.  I still have at least half a bottle of these sprinkles.  I'll have to think of something special to make that would be improved with star shaped sprinkles.

Chocolate Pancakes with Reese's Pieces and Peanut Butter Cups

We have been having peculiar weather where I live.  Last week it was very cold and snowy.  Today it reached 70 degrees.  In just one week the daily high temperature rose at least 40 degrees.

It was so warm yesterday and today that I rode my bike to work.  It has been a while since I could comfortably ride my bike to work.  Next week the temperature is going to get back down to the 30s and 40s, but this Spring time weather was been a wonderful break.

Slow Cooker Spanish Beef Stew

I don't know if this it authentic to any region of Spain, but it was tasty and hearty.

It is made in a slow cooker so this dish is also very convenient.  I just put everything in the crock pot and let it do its thing for a few hours.
