An Assortment

There has been so much good cooking and eating in the past two weeks that I had no choice but to make this post a photo dump.
1.) A banana split of epic proportions from Kimball's, 2.) Arugula salad with nectarines, chickpeas, and goat cheese, 3.) Roasted asparagus and olive bread, 4.) Strawberry and goat cheese arugula salad

but wait, there's more!

I made these simple shortbread cookies for the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises.  Since I'm not exactly the most artistically inclined person, drawing the batman symbol was a bit of a challenge. But I think I eventually reached the point of a respectable Batman.

Also, my family's thoughts and prayers go out to the Aurora victims and their families. If you would like to donate to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund, please visit Giving First for more information.

Remember those apple raspberry crumble bars i made a while back? well, i thought i would try it again with blueberries and strawberries:) the blueberry juice ended up soaking through some of the crust, which was not really the effect i was going for, but hey, you learn something everyday, right? overall, i think i liked the apple-raspberry combination better, but i was pretty happy with these.  okay, last picture of this post:

I hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend:) i know that mine involves making a pizza!

  1. Banana split looks good,
    also the salads,
    and the strawberries & blueberries.

    I wonder if this is considered food porn.

    I guess maybe you look at it the right way.
