Food For Thought (See Jane Make...sort of)

I love to cook.  However, due to my ever-changing schedule and constant travel, it makes it hard to visit the grocery store on a regular basis and have items on-hand that can create delicious meals.  While perusing Whole Foods last weekend I came across Rising Moon ravioli.  I decided to give it a whirl and the end result?  Way better than expected.  I kept it simple with olive oil, black pepper, kosher salt, and parmesan cheese; it was definitely the best ravioli I've ever had at home.  Alright, enough of that.  I promise never to post about frozen food again.


What's cooking (or defrosting) for you lately?

  4. There is nothing wrong with using frozen considering how long it takes to make actual Ravioli. I used Whole Food's pumpkin ravioli during fall time and added sage and cheeses. It was really good.

  6. Frozen food can sometimes be really good. And I have found excellent products in the frozen food section at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.

  11. That is totally going on the list! Sometimes we are lazy and get premade tamales and just make a few sides. The tamales are handmade, so it feels like I made a meal...when I didn't...yea!

  13. It looks delicious! The merlot wine pasta sounds really interesting. I love to cook too, but just don't have the time or energy to do it every night. So I have lots of frozen items like this for dinner on weeknights. I get a lot of it from Trader Joe's and it's actually pretty good and fairly healthy.

    The lululemon class was great! It was full, but not overly crowded and the instructor was knowledgeable. If I didn't already have a gym membership with great yoga classes, i'd go all the time.

    Yummers!!
