There interesting things that do make me want to cook, for example, simplyrecipes.com always has something awesome going on. The other day I made ginger and cinnamon cookies (I love those ginger cookies so much!) and froze most of the dough so I don't eat them all at once. Also, a couple of weeks ago I tried out the cucumber agua fresca which was quite refreshing and I really need to make it again. I would like to make this peach and blueberry cake, but the thought of the oven being on for that long is deterring me. And I have my new library card, so if I find any interesting cookbooks at the library, I'd like to review them here too.
I'm trying to find some good ethnic markets/cheap food and a stellar bakery. We've gone to a good Ethiopian restaurant, an excellent falafel house and a not so great Vietnamese place. Yesterday we found a Japanese market that seemed really good and fresh, and even sells miso paste! So I need to find more markets specializing in interesting international/ethic foods. So far, we have not encountered any bakeries that even compare with Pavel's. I probably just need to get out more, because in all honesty, I haven't been looking that hard. Older Brother told me about this food blog that will be helpful once I start reading it. All in all, it has been a good move and if you want to come visit, you would be welcome here!
