The last few months…

Ever since Corrie and Fred started this blog I’ve been dragging my camera downstairs every once in a while to take some food pictures but I’ve never had the time to actually post or write anything about them. So below are some pictures I’ve taken in the last few months at Ridge.

Toasted coconut chocolate chip cookies (they were supposed to be brown butter toasted coconut chocolate chip cookies but I forgot to brown the butter…) The recipe can be found here.



Cheese souffle made by Fred. I’m guessing he didn’t use a recipe.


Baked tomato sauce

This recipe is from my mom. All the tomatoes were grown in Berkeley (a friend gave them to me)

14 medium tomatoes

1 big bunch basil

10-14 cloves garlic

3/4 c. parsley
1 c. olive oil (I never use that much)
1 pound spaghetti
Cut tomatoes in half and put in pan with seeds showing. Mince basil, not fine, should make 2 cups lightly packed. Mince parsley and garlic (should be heaping 1/3 cup garlic). Mix basil, parsley, garlic and olive oil and pour evenly over tomatoes. Bake at 450 degrees for about 1 hour or until tomatoes look a little shriveled and there is juice in the pan. Remove tomatoes and use 2 knives to slice and dice to edible size. Mix with pasta. Serves 8

Tapioca pudding

The trick is to soak the tapioca pearls for a while in hot water before you use them so you don’t have to stir the pudding for forever. I’m pretty use this is the recipe I used.

Baked Kale (would be kale chips if I hadn’t been impatient…)

before it was baked…

I added a little parmesan cheese at the end…

To make this, de-stem kale leaves, place them on a baking tray, add olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic and bake at 400 until crispy.

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread (a little less healthy than kale chips….)

Sylvan got a little impatient…


You can find the recipe for this here.

And finally, back to something that contains zero butter…

Baked Winter Veggies (acorn squash, brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, potatoes and kale (we ate it all before this picture was taken).

Made by Mary, Ariel and me.

About three minutes later…
To make these: cut veggies. place on baking sheet and add olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and paprika. Bake at 400 until soft and golden.
