Who thinks, "Hmmm, what to have for dinner tomorrow?" and randomly has an intense craving for wild mushroom crepes with Bechamel sauce? I feel like this can't be normal. Nevertheless, a few weeks back this inexplicable vision and deep gut feeling led me to cooking up this meal on a Wednesday night, and let me tell you, the feeling was right!
I ended up creating a Wild Mushroom Crepes recipe that was so on point, upon finishing dinner (and after a few minutes of yelling "YUM!," "MMMMMM," and a few "Oh MAN's!"), I immediately called my mom to volunteer to make them as an unconventional Thanksgiving appetizer. But, because she has had her heart set on Turkey Tetrazzini this year (her own unconventional spin on Thanksgiving, I guess), her enthusiasm was, let's just say, tepid at best.

Like any normal girl, when I arrived at my parent's house for the holidays, I wanted to process meat. I told my dad I wanted to accomplish 3 things: make pate, make some kind of fresh, stuffed pasta (I had been thinking a sort of goat cheese/pork/rabbit creation), and make sausage. Some people make gingerbread cookies to celebrate the holidays. I wanted chorizo...

It's Sunday. And raining. And unless George Clooney called me up for a date, nothing could get me out of this house, including leaving the comfort of my bed for much-needed groceries.
So, I'm left with rummaging through a relatively-empty refrigerator looking for anything that might sustain me. Spicy mustard and mayo on a warmed up tortilla? Hmmm not so appealing. Luckily, our veggie box came a couple of days ago and there were 2 beautiful beets calling my name...Continue Reading
