winter pasta inspired by 101 cookbooks

Who would have known you can make green pasta sauce from blended kale and spinach. thanks to 101 cookbooks - Winter Pasta Recipe, I feel super healthy and inspired. I was so eager to prepare this dish, I forgot the follow the recipe. I glanced at the photo and got excited, using what i had. (kale and spinach, whole wheat spaghetti, ricotta instead of goat cheese, and slivered almonds for fun). I ate the pasta on day one, and then sauteed some mushrooms to change up the leftovers. mmmm. green winter pasta. (101 cookbooks recipe here)

easy peasy pasta from scratch

fresh pasta sauce from scratch

eggs for breakfast and dinner, like a true bachelor

baked eggs and  bachelor sandwhich4

if you live alone, im sure you find yourself breaking the common rule of eating eggs for breakfast. it's simple and quick and always yummy. this sandwich incorporated fresh avocado, chives, tomato and a fried egg on toasted baguette. mmmm. the baked eggs were okay, but overcooked, make sure you take them out before they harden to medium, it will be better for dipping your toast. (here i baked avocado, cilantro, tomato sauce and eggs in a little oven proof dish)
