let’s go on an asparagus journey / noodles & company – la jolla, ca

Earlier this month I was invited to Noodles & Company to try an “Asparagus Feast” at their restaurant. As someone who enjoys the flavor and taste of asparagus, I was more than happy to take them up on their offer. It was a little harder though to find some cohorts to join me in this endeavor though. Apparently a lot of my friends don’t dig asparagus for some reason. This baffles me like people’s dislike of mushrooms baffles me. Y’all …

Last week I made S.’s most requested item when he comes over to stay with Jake and I: macaroni and cheese.
I’m always altering that recipe I used for crispy creamy 5 cheese mac n cheese and Jake still, to this day, thinks that 5 cheese one is sheer perfection. But me? I’m always looking to improve it, change it, and make it better.

I’ve got a confession to make: I’m kind of a salt snob.
I don’t remember the last time I bought regular table salt, and quite frankly, I see no use for it. There’s a whole array of delicious salts that exist in the world that taste a thousand times better than boring table salt.

This is my current “salt collection”. The Fleur de Sel is the most used up bottle – I use it in cooking, in desserts (it’s perfect in chocolate …
