fajita sauce7

Hello My friends!

My goodness it has been too long!

Honestly I have to tell you that I am considering taking some time off of the blog. As much as I have loved these past two years and have been humbled by the outpouring of support, I haven’t made a single recipe in one of the piles of cook books I have, or in the stacks of  cooking magazines I collect, as I have been too busy on the quest to come up with original recipes. In many ways this has challenged me as a cook, but in many ways it has stunted me. I have always loved the challenge of following a recipe and tasting the fruits of my labor. And frankly I miss some of my favorite recipes from days gone that were not mine-Like my favorite Thai shrimp or roasted red pepper pasta. And as I sit here trying to read my chicken scratch of notes that I make when I cook, I realize in many ways, that I don’t appreciate the cooking process in the way that I did when I just cooked for cooking’s sake. A few more recipes may follow as there are piles of them that have been made and not blogged about, but I ask for your patience as I take some much needed time to step away and drink a glass of wine while making dinner with no worry about getting it done before the sun goes down to snap the perfect picture.

Roast at 400 for 15-20 minutes, stirring often. Let cool and then blend until smooth. Amazingly creamy fajita or enchilada sauce!
