DO NOT LOOK ON AN EMPTY STOMACH

WARNING - sorry in advance for causing any tummy growls!

I thought I would post my food pics up from last night early, before it gets to close to lunch time and I get a bunch of angry comments :)



Not only am I nail polish freak - I'm a food freak. I not only love to eat but I love to cook too. It used to be my dream to go to Chef's school. I can honestly say though, I would much rather go to nail tech school as I have gotten older.

Anyway I made Spinach Pesto Manicotti - and the best part about his dish is you don't have to cook the noodles before hand, which makes stuffing all that spinach ricotta mixture inside so much easier.


I almost forgot to get a picture! That's how come the pan is halfway empty - whoops!


This wasn't half eaten, I just cut them open to try and get a shot of those yummy insides!

I also made fried peaches the other night too. I have had fried peaches that are sort of batter dipped which are soooo yummy, but these were just fried in a pan. It's really simple to do too - but tastes oh sooooo good. You just slice up your peach and fry it in a pan with butter, brown sugar and white sugar. After it was bubbly, I let it cook on low for about 30 minutes and then served it over ice cream and topped it off with some whip cream - DELISH!! I swear it tastes like warm, buttery, caramel sauce with sweet, soft warm peaches - out of this world :)
