Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread cookies:  Sifted flour, confectioner's sugar, and a pinch of salt.  Clarified butter enriched with honey is added until the dough comes together.  Bake and dust with more confectioner's sugar.  Serve without crockery.

Black Beans in BBQ Sauce

The BBQ sauce is molasses, ketchup, cayenne, salt, vinegar, etc.  I coated the black beans with the sauce and heated the mixture through.  Quick and easy.

Spinach Salad

Fresh spinach salad with a warm strawberry balsamic vinaigrette.  Topped with sunflower seeds.

Simple Cereal

Cereal.  Lightly soaked rolled oats with cinnamon-sugar.

Black Bean Spread

Comfort Food:
Slow cooked black beans gently mashed into sauteed red and white onions, with secret spices.
Topped with parmesan and finished in the oven.  Served with toast.

'Butta'ry Sweet Potato

Sweet Potato.  Baked in foil, then halved and skinned.  Chiffonade the skin and use it as topping.    It's like butta.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes topped with Over-Medium Eggs and a Strawberry.  
The taste lived up to what I wanted, but the presentation and photography are lacking.  Expect a second attempt.  Yes, that is a pat of butter melting out from under the eggs.  That's how I roll.
