I was a much better gardener when I lived in the house and could have my own compost. This summer it’s been rough. Almost all of my herbs have died and one of my tomato plants grows tons of fruit but turns bad as soon as the fruit changes color. Yesterday I picked up these at the Wheaton French Market from J& K Flowers. Hopefully I’ll still get in another two months before our Chicago weather gets cold.
But nonetheless, today I’m Making bruschetta with my basil, tomatoes, and chives from my container garden. Normally I would make bread too but I cheated and picked up some from Hanna’s bakery in Bloomingdale.
I couldn’t help picking up a few sweets as well as Creme Cheese for my Pumpkin truffles I’m making for later.
Looking for a Unique & Flavorful kick to spice up your food? Gindo’s has by far the Best hot sauces around. And I love The fact that her hubby experiments with a new hot sauce every week.
You Can find them on Saturday in Wheaton/ Sunday in Geneva #Buylocal Gindo’s Spice of Life❤❤❤
Just one example of my dishes I make at home.
Love making healthy snacks.
Used fresh basil from my garden, a variety of tomatoes and fresh mozzarella from the market and yummy triple berry balsamic from my girlfriends company. One day I’ll learn how to make my own mozzarella.😉
I love visiting farmers markets and picking up fresh fruits but when I can’t, I still like to be creative with my food.
My twist on dessert.
Super Easy flourless banana protein bread.
3 large bananas, 2 large eggs, 2 cups of oats, 1/4 pure maple syrup, 1 tsp. Baking powder and a scoop or two of vegan vanilla protein powder. Yum. Bake 350 ~30-40 mins.

My New “Sweet & Classy” Ham, Egg and cheese croissant.
Ham, Egg, spinach, tomato and Grand Cru Surchoix cheese (2016 Winner of World’s Best Cheese), on a Fresh Almond Croissant from Hanna’s Bakery. It’s so light and flaky it melts in your mouth! #yumyum #hungrygirl #jaxkitchen
