In My Kitchen May (and April) 2017

I have missed a couple IMK link ups, and have missed visiting my blogging friends too. Spring is very slow to arrive and my kitchen inspiration has been lacking, almost non-existent. 

There hasn’t been too much excitement around here. 

If you check out our Instagram @cookswithevie you will have seen what we have been up to. 

Here are a few things that have been in our kitchen while we have been AWOL from blogging.

Evie turned 9! This was the at home cake and we had emoji cupcakes at her party with friends.

We made this crepe cake, which I still have to post on the blog, and will do that soon.

We dyed Easter eggs

Made this delicious Thai crunch salad

Lays smile bag

I did post this recipe! It is on the blog.An antipasto snackPan fried gnocchi pomodoroChickpea avocado sandwich with cilantro sprouts We made maple pecan granolaEvie made cupcakes, she is not light handed when it comes to sprinkles!Maybe there was a little more going on in my kitchen than I thought.

    Your kitchen was full of treats and good eats, and some interesting Oregon wines. The antipasto salad and crepe cake have my tummy runbling in anticipation, but Evie gets the top honors for smiles and cupcake decorating.

    Oh Lori, what a delight to witness your IMK capers this month, even if you felt like not much “exciting” was going on… sometimes there’s more than meets the eye. WOW… Evie is 9 already? Happy Birthday to her, belated tho it may be! Had to smile at her “generosity” with sprinkles… I’m the same way. 🙂 Loved the gorgeous layers of your crepe cake, your antipasto, and maple pecan granola. (Among other things!) Thanks for featuring Oregon wines, too. A neighbor just recommended them last week when they visited the “hood” and I promised to check them out. Cool to see your “ditto” accolades… I trust your judgment! xo

  6. Great crepe cake! Love the girl genius tee.

  7. Love the Lays smile bag – I would be taking photos of everyone, even my cat Lori! Loving the look of your crepe cake and that gnocchi – wow! Is there a recipe, I’d love to try it 🙂 Glad to catch up over #IMK x

    I’ve been meaning to make a crepe cake, thanks for the reminder! I think it must be a kid thing to pour the sprinkles on, I know my boys do it as well. Granola is a staple around here, can’t have enough in the house. Oregon has some excellent wines, I loved visiting many wineries there a few years ago.

  9. Love it all- but especially the crepe cake. Fabulous!
