Favorite Foods and Gothic Photographs

Booklogged tagged me for this meme on Must Try foods:

  1. Quick Breads - I love banana bread, zucchini bread, and apple bread. They are quick and easy to make and just sweet enough.
  2. Leslie's Chicken - same as King Ranch Chicken, but the recipe came through Leslie all those years ago. I rarely make this anymore, but have such strong associations with the time when my kids were growing up.
  3. Eggplant Coins - Erin gave me this recipe, an eggplant parmesan variation, several years ago when she was in law school. I love eggplant in almost any recipe.
  4. Tomato Basil soup - from a small local restaurant. I've never liked tomato soup before, but this stuff is heavenly. I buy small containers of it in the fall and winter and indulge myself.
  5. Eric's (son-in-law) wonderful tabouli. Mmmmm!

Anyone who wants to is welcome to try this meme. But leave a link in the comments so I can visit, please! :)

Simon Marsden's photographs are remarkable. You can look by category: Arcane Arches and Decorative Doorways, Crumbling Castles, Dark Towers, Gothic Graveyards, Grotesque Gargoyles, Haunted Houses, Romantic list just a few. Found this via Carl V. and nominate Simon Marsden for best Gothic Photographer.


  1. Jen, these foods sound delicious. Do you ever share your recipes? I would love to make Leslie's Chicken and the Eggpland Coins.

    I love banana and zucchini bread, but have never had apple bread. Do you use the same recipe and just substitute the apples?

    The tomato basil soup sounds perfect for our weather today. It's drizzling and gray. What is tabouli?

    I've enjoyed looking at your quilt projects. I got a quilt cut out before school started, but haven't done anything further on it. This cool weather is urging me to get it out and work some more on it.

  2. I already have great banana and zucchini bread recipes but would love to try the apple bread. Anything baked with apples is a favorite with me.


Good to hear from you!
