It's Back.

Maybe because it's a new season. Maybe a long hiatus did me good. Maybe I'm starting to feel bad for my family. Maybe it's all of the above--but the desire to cook is back. I haven't completely neglected my family, but cooking has fell to the wayside--something I usually love to do. Travis tells me that if he has to eat unseasoned crockpot beans one more time--he might leave me. I've searched several cookbooks and lucky for me--magazines from the subscriptions people sent for my birthday. I'm inspired. I've been checking out new kitchen gadgets and cookware (like the Rachael Ray Cookware line--love it! I'll take mine in green, please. Or the blue. Or maybe the yellow. Definitely the orange. Check out the cast-iron grill pan. It's on my Christmas list.) Well, cooking is on. And lucky for you--I have a recipe blog. http://www.clowerscuisine.blogspot.com/ Check back for some yummy fall meal ideas--completely unoriginal, though. I'm not that inspired.

Inspired.

I got one of my foodie magazines in the mail for the month of August, bon appetit. It's an interesting magazine full of beautiful recipes, most of which my kids wouldn't touch and desserts I only dream about making. I love to read about cooking and eating, so while I'm not always trying the featured recipes now, I'm mentally filing for another time and place.

This month celebrated the birthday of Julia Child, of Mastering the Art of French Cooking fame. Yum--I love the thought of french cooking, but it's one of those things you don't want to mess up. I've been inspired to try it. Although the Poulet Saute Aux Herbes de Provence looks amazing, I'm pretty sure that recipe and myself would be a bad mix for the first time around. I went to the library and checked out French cookbooks for children. Something they might actually like--something I might actually be able to cook. First up: Sauteed Chicken, in a mushroom gravy-like sauce and Asparagus with Aioli, a creamy sauce to top it off. Maybe some chocolate mousse for dessert? Yum.

I also grabbed Mexican and Chinese kid's cookbooks with some authentic easy-to-make recipes. Be watching my food blog for details.
