I am a freelance graphic artist. Since I work at home and my work is flexible I do 90 percent of the shopping and the cooking for my family. I am passionate about organic and humanely treated ingredients. There's no need for guar gum in bread, sugar in ketchup or tomato sauce, pancake mixes, cake mixes or polysorbate ANYTHING in ANY FOOD. Food is fuel and it should be and frankly it needs to be, the best fuel that you can possibly provide for yourself and your family.
I very much do not care for tradition or convention. Efficiency and logic are paramount in my projects and efforts for my family.
Zucchini Herb Casserole
This is awesome! I had to tweak it a bit because I didn't have all the ingredients and there's a tomato hater in the house, added spinach instead. Cooked the veggies in some Mascato wine. Had to use Parmesan no more cheddar in the house after the Cheddar Cauliflower Soup was made. I'm thinking mushrooms would be a nice addition to this and maybe I'll try wild rice instead of white next time. GOOD STUFF!!!
I strongly suggest seasoning to your own taste in so far as amounts are concerned. ;)

Overnight Blueberry French Toast
We just tried this, it is awesome just the way it is. I did tweak it a bit though so here are my suggestions; the cream cheese really didn't distribute so next time I will cream it with the eggs as previously suggested. If you want the decadent feel of it just use ten eggs not 12, we only had ten this time. We added a teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg. Did a tablespoon of vanilla, buttermilk instead of milk. For the sauce we only used 1/2 a cup of sugar, the fruit is sweet enough. Next time I'm using peaches in the bread egg mix and making a blueberry sauce to top it with.
I try to add as much nutrient value to the food I make for my family so I made my own loaf of bread from scratch and used it the very same night, no need for it to be day old, I cut most of the crust off, not all.
3 cups white wheat flour
1 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 packet of yeast
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup milk or buttermilk
1/4 cup oil
bake the bread at 350F until the internal temperature is 190F
