Gourmet Goodies

Good Morning Sweets,

I love getting mail. Fun stuff, not bills and court summons (just kidding). I think this is even more true in a time when emailing and texting are so common. Well, yesterday I got a package in the mail!!! It was from lovely Vanessa over at Gourmet Runner. She and her husband are building their own house (I know right?) and for the first time in a long while, she had access to an oven to cook dinner in, as opposed to a microwave. She asked her readers for ideas on what she could cook for dinner to celebrate. Guess what? She picked my recipe!! Unst Unst Unst! As a thank you, she sent me enough goodies so I would not have to cook:

Thanks Vanessa!!!! Those honey caffeine things are awesome! In fact, the package was empty by the time I took that picture!

I thought I would share the same recipe I shared with the Gourmet Runner with you sweets. It is great for you veggie lovers out there, plus it is really easy! I like to wear a cute apron while I make it (or at least when I pull it out of the oven and HM is in the room). I feel all Betty Draper.


  • olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 eggplant, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • salt t
  • grated Parmesan cheese (the fancy kind)
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 large onion, sliced into rings
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 3-4 large tomatoes, chopped

Saute the oil, garlic and eggplant until "mushy". Add parsley to mixture. Add the eggplant mixture to the bottom of a baking dish. Sprinkle in salt and a layer of cheese . Layer in each vegetable, adding salt and Parmesan between each layer. Save the tomatoes for the final top layer and cover generously with Parmesan and some salt. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Enjoy! Figures, I don't have a picture of the Ratatouille but I have this picture of the dish I use to make it...........

Are we the only ones who play cook the kitty? What is wrong with us? And of course we washed it, like eww.

Sweets, if you end up making it, let me know what you think! Also- please vote in this weeks poll if you have not already done so....closes tomorrow!
