Herbed Eggplant Gratin with Creme Fraiche

I think I've said this before, but just in case I didn't I'm in love with Pinterest.  I've found so many different things on that site that it's just amazing.  I've found anything from home decor ideas, to things to do with the kids, to one of my favoriate pass times....COOKING! How can you not love a site that allows you to have everything you need right at your finger tips. 

About a month ago I came across this reciepe and I told myself I would have to try it because eggplant is one of the few veggies that I could get Jonathan to eat without it being WW III.  All you mothers know what I'm talking about, if only they were like that when it came to sweets, but that's a whole other story. 

I have to say that hey Creme Fraiche is what makes this dish.  I personally recommed only using enough of the two sauces to cover the eggplant so it's not dry.  Sometimes I feel that too much sauce really masks the taste of the eggplant and what's the point of eating eggplant if your not going to taste it. 

This really pairs well as a side dish, with meatballs and pasta, or since eggplants are sucha harty veggie, it could even be made into a grinder.  whatever way you go, you will not be disappointed. 
Like always happy cooking and Baking!


2 medium to large eggplant, sliced 1/2″ thick
salt & pepper to taste
cooking spray
1 quart simple tomato sauce
3 Tbs. minced chives
3 Tbs. minced parsley
12 oz. creme fraiche
4 oz parmesan cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 375.
Season eggplant slices with salt and pepper.
Spray and heat a large skillet over med-high heat and fry eggplant slices in batches until golden on both sides.
Set aside while you prepare the creme fraiche.
Place creme fraiche in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
Let reduce until you have about 1 cup.
Then stir in half of the grated parmesan and all of the chopped herbs and set aside.

Spray a casserole dish and place eggplant inside in a single layer.
Cover with a thin layer of simple tomato sauce and a sprinkle of parmesan.

Make two more layers of eggplant and sauce, covering the top with tomato sauce.
Ladle over the reduced creme fraiche or cream and sprinkle on a final layer of parmesan cheese.

Bake uncovered until browned and bubbling, about 25-30 minutes.
Let rest briefly before serving.

I would encourage anyone looking for something easy to try this one, it didn't take more than 15 minutes to make and was a hit.

I love the favor that this marinade gives the chicken and how easy it is to put together. I tend to use this marinade over night so that my meat comes out favor packed. It could also me used on days that you're lookig to put something together, just marinade for 30 minutes and then bake in marinade.

Wow! I can not believe that it's been 3 months since my last "real" food post. Life has been a worldwind, between the promotion at work, having an active 4 year old, and now a newborn, seems like I don't have enough time for anything.

In my head I was telling myself that while home on maternity leave I would have all this time to blog all the new recipes that I would be trying. Boy was I WRONG! While yes, I've been trying new things and taking pictures as I go, I haven't had the time to sit down and blog them. Seems like I'm always getting pulled somewhere else.

Well today I'm home alone with Miss. Emilie so while she naps, mommy is going to try to get a few posts done. Since naps tend to run short in this house, I going to start with a new marinade.

This marinade works with everything from beef, to chicken, even to fish. This is truly a must try marinade. I promise you will not be disappointed. I've tried it on T-bones and today I'm trying it on chicken breasts that I'm roasting for lunch. Can't wait to dig in as it's smelling so good!

Like always happy cookig and baking!

Homemade Cranberry Apple Granola

So for this month's What's Baking Challenge Ammie from my adventuresinmykitchen wanted everyone to bake with Spring Produce. Unfortunately, my visit over the past few weeks to my local farmer's market have been few and very far in between.

Besides the fact that I am now 22 weeks pregnant, I've also taken on a promotion with work, which has has me doing a lot of traveling over the past few weeks. So of course I wanted to make sure I had a few healthy treats at home while I'm away.

One thing that I know everyone in our home likes is granola. So I baked up another batch before I hit the road yet again this week. Good news is after this week I'll be home for at least the 3-4 weeks!

I Know that cranberries, and apples aren't spring time goods, but at least I could say that I got my apples at the farmer's market that Opened up again this month. =)I'm sure that Ammie will allow me to get away with it...this time.

Sourdough Bread (What's Baking)

I have to apologize for the fact that I've been MIA. Between being pregnant, and then having a sick child, then a sick husband, and then a sick child again. life seems to have gotten away for my. But just because I didn't post during that time frame doesn't mean I haven't been cooking and baking up a storm. Stay tone for a bunch of blog updates over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, let me start with this month's what baking challenge. This month Lindsay from is our host. Lindsay challenged everyone to bake with YEAST. Yes, yeast I'll admit I've baked with yeast before, but it still intimidates me at times, I don't know why, but it just does.

Lucky for me this time around I had another success! Please make sure to check out Lindsay's blog at the end of the month for a full roundup of what everyone submitted this time around.

Like always...Happy baking!

Recipe source:


1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
3 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F to 115 degrees F), divided
7 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk powder
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
In a 4-qt. non-metallic bowl, dissolve yeast in 2 cups warm water and let stand for 5 minutes.

Stir in 2 cups of flour until smooth, once combined cover loosely with a clean towel.

Let stand in a warm place (80 degrees F-90 degrees F) to ferment for 48 hours during this period stir several times daily.

The mixture will become bubbly and rise, have a "yeasty" sour aroma and a transparent yellow liquid will form on the top.

Stir in milk powder, butter, sugar, salt, remaining water and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.

Turn onto a floured surface; punch dough down.

Divide in half. Shape each into a round loaf.

Heavily grease a two loaf pans, and sprinkle with cornmeal.

Place dough on prepared pans, cover and allow it rise until doubled. This should take about 30 minutes.

With a sharp knife, make slashes down the middle of each loaf.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.

Brush loaves with cold water; bake 35-40 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Sriracha Chicken

If I could, I would make chicken every day, but that can't happen due to the simple truth that i'm marry to a man that craves variety. =) With that said I still tend to make chicken one a week, and I'm always looking for a new recipe to try. So when I came across this recipe on Pinterest, I just knew I had to try it.

My family enjoyed it every much and it's become one of my husband favorites, so for him to request it, you know it had to be good. I hope you all enjoy this as muchas my family did.

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting

I am so excited...why you might ask, well it's because I'm the host of this month's "what's baking challenge! And seeing that it's Valentine's time again, I wanted to try a new cupcake recipe so I figured why not make a red velvet cupcake to stay with the holiday color theme.

Since Valentine's day lands on a night that I have to work later, I decided that we would celebrate the weekend before. This year I asked my three year old what he wanted to dessert and his response was "I want cupcakes!" Seeing that it was Jonathan's Valentine's Day Dinner as well, how could I say no.

I couldn't have been happier with the way the cupcakes turned out and I can not wait to make them again. Please make sure to come back and check out my what's baking round up and I've already gotten some amazing submission.

Like always happy baking!

Skillet Rosemary Chicken

Have I told you all how much I love Pinterest? Well if I haven't let it be known that It's my new love. I love that fact that I'm able to "pin" (book mark) just about anything and I can come back to it at a later date.

I think that over the past 3-4 months most of my pins have been either decor or food related. Which for me is great because I love the fact that I could get meal ideas from other people. I think that it's so great that I could look at someone's else recipe and it can inspire me to make something new when I find myself in a food funk!

This such a great dish and has made it's way into our meal rotation. If you're looking for sides to go with this, it pairs well with roasted potatoes and a side of veggie such as mushrooms, or green beans. I hope you all enjoy this as much we did.

Like always happy cooking!

Mini Carrot Cakes

One of my husband's favorite cakes is carrot cake. So when I bake him any type of sweet, I tend to find myself going to a carrot cake or his second favorite, apple cake. He would much rather have a piece of cake over something as sweet as a brownie or ice cream.

Seeing as my husband was on call this during Chinese New Years my in-laws came up and did all the cooking. Since wanted to do all the cooking I decided that I would bake something for dessert. The down side was because they were doing all the cooking, I was in a time crunch and couldn't spend an hour to baking the cake so I decided that I would use this recipe and just bake mini cakes. I have to say that the mini carrot cakes were a huge hit. Not only were the cute, but they also were the perfect size.


6oz Unsalted butter
1 egg at room temperature
1 Tablespoon of water
2 Cups of grated carrots
1/2 Cup of flour
1 Teaspoon of baking soda
1 Teaspoon of Baking powder
2 Tablespoon of cinnamon
1 Teaspoon of pumpkin spice
1/2 Teaspoon of salt
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease muffin tin and set aside

In stand mixed, cream the butter, vanilla, and sugar until light and fluffy.

Beat in the egg and water.

Add in carrots, once combined, add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and salt.

Once combined, spoon in the mixture to prepared muffin tin.

Fill to the carrot cakes do not lift a lot.

Bake until the tops spring back when touched lightly for about 35 minutes.

Let stand for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Once cool frost with your favorite cream cheese frosting.

Low- fat Mocha Coffee Chocolate Chip Muffins

I don't know about you, but I can not start the day without a cup of coffee.

You parents know what I'm talking about =)So sometimes our morning start with a grab and go. Well this this grab and go muffin, not only do I get that coffee flavor, but I also get a healthy start to the morning.

We are very big on breakfast,and because of that I'm always looking for something to make on Sundays for the following work week. It has to be easy and something that we can eat on the move. Therefore each week it's either a new twist on pancakes, french toast, croissants, and of course this week's breakfast is MUFFINS!
