Epic baking/cooking friday!!

So today I decided I was going to get into it, and get some baking going on. Plus I was planning on making the goat cheese/asparagus pasta that I found on a blog. I went and purchased my very first lemon zester. I must say it was great fun zesting 2 lemons lol I cant wait to use it again. I made dessert first. I bought a package of blueberries and found a galette. It was a very simple recipe too just involved cornstarch,blueberries, sugar, and the zest and juice of 1 lemon. I just used a ready-made pie crust it was just easier.

It turned out great!

The photo doesn’t do it justice (flash suckage lol) Need to go pick up some ice cream for it. I cannot wait to dive into it!

Next was the asparagus goat cheese pasta! I love food blogs and I have been all over them recently trying to get new ideas of stuff to make.  I came across this recipe for pasta that was sort of macaroni and cheese but kicked up. 😛 Everything went great you boil up penne pasta and about 2 minutes shy of the box directions add some fresh chopped asparagus and cook for the rest of the time. Drain and add goat cheese, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt, and the zest and juice of one lemon. Mix all together and poof. The recipe calls for you to save 1 cup of the boiling water in case it gets to thick but I myself didn’t need it mixed together perfectly.

So that was my first epic baking/cooking friday! There will be more to come this weekend because we are having an open house/housewarming cookout on monday and i am searching the blogs once again looking for something to bake for it. We are just gonna do hamburgers.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
