This week was extremely stressful. I faced a lot of challenges, but I survived, even though I thought it would end in me being admitted to mental rehabilitation facility. I was able to cope because I found peace in my cooking, and discussions with all of you. I enjoy talking with you guys. Please continue to share, and discuss anything that interests you with me, or just say ” Hey how’s it going?” I love questions from you, and I want to get to know everyone, even if your interest isn’t in the world of food. So, talk to Trav. I can assure you my interests go beyond food. Let’s talk.

Tonight I decided to do some cooking to relieve my stress. I followed my recipes for pizza and pasta salad. I made a pizza with vegetables I roasted with turmeric. It was delicious. I rubbed the vegetables with tumeric, olive oil and an all purpose seasoning. Then I roasted the veggies, and used them to top my pizza. Who knew tumeric would taste great on pizza? Have you ever tried it?

Also, I followed my pasta salad recipe, but this time I melted Vermont Cheddar Cheese on top. It was mouth watering.

So, this was my friday night. How did you spend your friday night?

  1. Have not tried turmeric on pizza but I have sprinkled it on so many meals lately! Ever since I found out that it decreases inflammation in the body, I’ve been obsessed. I really only cook when I’m with my bf so my meals are so simple — like steamed veggies and beans or soup lol and then snacks randomly all day. I have been kinda curious (since you post so many amazing dishes) do you cook for yourself everyday? Also, I’m glad you’re okay and hope you get any kind of help if you ever need it — I have had to ask for it before too. It’s not unusual :)) –jess

    1. Heeeey Jess, thank you for introducing yourself. It’s great to meet you. Right now I cook for myself, friends, and family. I didn’t know tumeric reduced inflammation. That’s great to know. I usually add it to my Greek yogurt face mask. It’s great for your skin.

      1. Lol oh cool! I have never done a Greek yogurt face mask. What did you put in it? Just straight Greek yogurt? I will prob try that soon :)) and yes, turmeric is amazing for inflammation – some ppl even take it in pill form lol

      2. Hey Jess, for the mask all you need is greek yogurt, honey and tumeric. I mix 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt with 2 tablespoons of raw honey, and 1 teaspoon of tumeric. If you have some left over you can store it in the fridge. I have other mask recipes, just tell me what your concerns are, if any. I love natural skin care remedies.
