This is my cute 15 year old daughter Tiara~after cheer practice she jumped in the kitchen and made us some dinner. She always amazes me, she is impulsive, likes to try new things & always makes up her own recipes~
|She created her own tempura batter which was light & delicate~ it had great flavor!|
...and for dessert
|she dipped the shrimp in her homemade strawberry berry jam she made earlier in the week & tempura~served with brown sugar & agave|
It was Yummy!!

I love making fresh pasta, shopping for unique shapes, sizes & colors for a special celebration or holiday cioppino. Before my kitchen remodel the big fun was throwing it on the ceiling to see if it would stick. I even threw down on parchement one summer on our outdoor table- sauce,meatballs and all!

I love this crispy cracker from Costco. (you may want to close your eye when you break it apart) It has a nice light rosemary flavor and makes a great appetizer or snack. I topped mine with
with a slice of manchego & olive tapenade.
