Personal Chef Daria: Mom's Day Brunch Menu Of What Her Kiddos Served Her.

Greetings Foodies!
Brunch Menu of what my Kiddos served me on Mom's Day!

Mother's Day was yesterday. As some of you already knew I'm a Personal Chef, but others may not know I'm also a Mom, hence I really do cook alot on 2 fronts not just in other homes but of course my own. However, during this special time of year my Kiddos (Jesi & Aiyana) tend to treat me to their culinary skills... "Above" is a pix of their version of  "Shakshouka with Olive Bread" before serving & their presentation. How was it... "Fabulous"!

 *** A North African And Middle Eastern Dish ***
Shashuka or Shakshouka is eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes with peppers, onions & spices. Cumin is often found in this recipe from region to region.

On that note, I'd love to hear...

Bon Appetit!

Personal Chef Daria Gives A Last Minute Mom's Day Dinner Idea: "Go For Powerful Pasta"!

Last Minute Mom's Day Dish, ... Or Cooking's A Quandry For You: ( Powerful Pasta ) To The Rescue!

Pasta cooked well can be kicked up with just about anything. If you're a veggie lover, throw in your favorite ones (raw or steamed), ... with some minced garlic, a few herbs, your favorite salad dressing, combine ..... then grate your favorite cheese atop it. Add your favorite bread & wine alongside it. Fini! 

For those who enjoy protein add some diced chicken, shrimp steamed or sauteed in white wine, flaked crabmeat, or steak cubed such as rib-eye or fillet mignon that's been grilled, broiled or pan-fried.

Mom's Day Brunch "Ingredient" Idea: Use "Ravishing Radishes!"

"Ravishing Radishes: An Often Forgotten Veggie That's Quite Diverse." 

I love gardening it's meditative, inspiring and of course, "edible"! I'm a bit of an "Ecoist", hence most of what I like to plant is not only a treat for the eyes, but a feast for the belly. The humble looking radish packs flavor and adds, color & texture to a myriad of dishes.This little veg is also a great source of vitamin A & C, and the mineral calcium.  

Ironically, I've met many people who discard the leafy tops. Stop! They are "Fab" sauteed, stir fried, in soup, as a pesto & one of my personal favorites a key ingredient in a Dal. They offer a dish an intriguing peppery flavor. 

Radishes Rule! Enjoy Exploring Them! _Personal Chef Daria

Let's Travel The Flavor World ... Together!_Daria ( Personal Chef)

 In Search Of The Ultimate Porridges. 

If you are like me, I love traveling the "Flavor World Of Food", especially for "Breakfast Fare". The best excursions are to the  "Late-Nite Fridge" & "Cupboard Raid Depot'. One of my favorite "Midnight Munch-ables" are foods in the "Cereal/Grain" category. With some savvy, flavor enhancing grains such as, oats, quinoa or buckwheat easily surrender & can become guilt-free, light at night perfect nutrition adherents. 

Today, I came across an inspiring article (By: Robin Shreeves ) that not only offered some "FYI" for those of you who may have wondered about the difference between "Oatmeal & Porridge", but in addition there were some very creative recipe suggestions also included. In our ever increasing health oriented world of eco-sustainable food choices, it is a joy to know that "Grandma Wisdom" was always "En Vogue". So grab a bowl &, ..... "Eat Your Oatmeal"! -Daria

" A Low Bank Of Clouds".... (Excerpt)
   By Ed Roberson
But for a low bank of cloud,
         clear morning,    empty sky.
The bright band of light beneath  the cloud’s gray
       I thought at first was open distance,    but it’s ice
that by extension raised the lake above the lip of blue lake
       and spilled it farther out than that horizon
along the sky
       and floods the clouds.

So here is some vital info for "The Gardeners" Novice or Experienced, let's keep ourselves, others & the critters Kosher, while we use our gardens for either making that healthy salad we favor, adorning our spaces with flora & exploring our natural world.
