Chicken Mashed Potato Balls

It’s time to go grocery shopping again, but I don’t want to go until I have used almost everything in the kitchen (trying to limit my exposure to the virus by going to the store less..) So, that just means I need to get creative, and my creativity of the night is…Shredded chicken and mashed…

New Piece

I finished up a new painting recently, and I am happy with the end result. The background is my favorite by far, yet the center gave me a bit of trouble. I actually painted like 3/4ths of the center triangle, didn’t like it, painted it over with white, and tried again. I still was not…

A message from Cosma – Ball is life. That is all

Ground beef, onion & mashed potato pierogi.

When I was a sophomore in college, my boyfriend at the time (now my fiancé) was living with one of our great friends, and he was OBSESSED with pierogi. Like, he basically ate it every night for dinner, mostly because it was super easy to warm up the frozen kind. So now anytime I even…

Butternut Squash & Asparagus Bisque

The other night, I was trying to think of what to eat for dinner, and all I knew was I needed to use the asparagus in the fridge. I was kind of sick of the normal ways I cook asparagus so I decided to invent something, and that happened to be this super tasty bisque that…

Move to Cali Postponed

If you pay attention to my blog posts, then you would know that Adam and I were planning on moving to California at the end of April. We were both so excited, mentally prepared for everything that had to go into it. We let our landlords know, and they agreed to shorten our lease by…

Cats in Cars = No Fun

So if you stay tuned to my blog, then you will know that Adam and I are moving to California soon. In 2 months to be exact. So beyond excited and antsy. Well, we told our landlords that we do not want to re-sign our lease, so they already put our place on the market….

Banana Pepper Poppers

I harvested these beautiful banana peppers from work yesterday, and was so excited to eat them when I got home. I mean…I had a brilliant idea, to make jalapeño poppers, but with banana peppers instead. Yas! I was wondering if they would be spicy because they had turned red, but nope, they were perfectly mild….

Succulents!

I am growing a fun variety of succulents in one of my AeroGardens, and they are going crazy! I swear there is a new petal on them every 2 days. I had to trim some of the ones that were getting too large, so they would stop overshadowing the rest, and then transplanted the trimmings…

Pommes Persillade (Potatoes with Parsley and Garlic)
