Brussel Sprouts FTW! Quarter and fry, then toss with olive oil that's been hanging out with slivered garlic, orange zest, and red pepper flakes in it all day.

Kale with a light tempura batter. mmmmmm

I host an annual fry party every year. Last year's was vegan so we had lots of deliciously fired veggies and some creative desserts.

Isn't the proper term "cocktail glass" not Martini glass?

The rainbow that Renee posted is amazing, and something I wish we had been capable of, but we went a different route for the rainbow room request from my 5yo.

This is very similar to the America's Test Kitchen recipe, which is fantastic. Yolks and butter mixed together, and then whites and milks mixed together. Then both added to dry. They of course offer the science behind the protiens bonding etc. etc.

I totally had that phone when I was a kid. I think it was the first phone I ever had in my room. Ah, good times.

An absolute favorite in our home. (Aside from our homebrew of course). Stone Brewery makes some fantastic beers overall, and Ruination in particular is terrific. Yes, it's aggressively hopped, but it is rich, complex and well balanced too.

I rocked some Pad Thai this month, based on the instructions from Chez Pim. Came out awesome! A new family and friend favorite that I will be returning to often.

Nudik, I made the same rainbow cake for my daughter's 4th birthday this summer. It was a big hit with kids and adults alike.

A khaki-gray color called "Ethereal Mood". Silly name, but we love the color.

Try this American IPA kit from Williams Brewing. I just recently started brewing and this is the first kit we started with. We are now almost finished with the keg (skipped bottling). The malt extra is not prehopped, so you pitch hop pellets throughout the brew. Very easy, greaty floral hop taste. Might be a nice change from you last brew. Next up, one more kit, then on to full grain brews.

Yeah, yeah, breaking the rules...please don't tell me no one broke any rules in college. I think it's a brilliant solution. One I am incredibly jealous of not having for those long 10 months.

The Thai/Vietnamese -esque springrolls we make are a family staple. Cheap, delicious, easy. What's not to love. Plus I usually plan to make spring rolls the night after making Vietnamese noodle soup when I already have all of the ingredients leftover and ready to go.
