Happy Friday Everyone! No food pics today but I can guarantee you there will be more next week.
My spirit has been rejuvenated thanks to the wonderful women in my life. It's such a blessing to have the camaraderie of strong and beautiful friends who are there to support you when life drops a bucket of lemons at your doorstep. We all just end up making pink lemonade, lemon squares, lemon meringue, lemon drop cookies and lemon chiffon cake out of the mess.
Today's trailers have strong female leads, good and bad, hope you get some enjoyment out of them. See you at the theatre!

The Hungers Games trailer is disabled for embedding on YouTube so I found an interview with Jennifer Lawrence about the film. The Hunger Games trailer.

Good Monday to you! Today I wanted to share a food photo and some recipes for Spicy Curry Catfish. As much as I would love to say that I made this dish, I did not. My husband and I enjoy our eats at Pa Ord Noodles in Hollywood and every time we visit, we try to order something new from their menu.
I don't have the direct recipe from them but below are a couple links to curry catfish recipes. All I can surmise is that the catfish from Pa Ord Noodles had a light batter and most likely fried in extremely hot oil in order for the fish to have been incredibly crispy. The texture of fish just absorbed the sweet, spicy and fragrant flavors of the sauce and made every bite better than the next. For me, it was delicious but for my husband it was difficult because of the bones he had to deal with. So if I were to make this dish, I would probably make sure the fish was in boneless nugget or fillet form.
Have fun cooking this and let me know if it was successful!

Once upon a time there was a little Princess from a far away land. She turned the enchanted age of three and celebrated her very special day with the other princesses of the Magical Kingdom of Disney. She won the hearts of many who had the chance to be in her presence. The kind and gentle Princess had a wonderful birthday. It was a good day.

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you treat yourself or the one you love with a great evening of appreciation for all the good things in your life. Time to remember what Love is really about.
Well, for today I used a basic Butter Cookie recipe but added some Almond extract for that extra something flavor. For my icings, I made basic icing with milk and added Cinnamon extract for red icing and Jasmine and Vanilla extract for the pink. Sexy and Beautiful.
Know that you are Loved today no matter your past, your mistakes, your crazies, your doubts...no matter what...YOU are Loved. I know I am loved most by my God and by my husband. Have a great Tuesday!
Let me not to the marriage of true minds

|Breakfast of Legend|
Have you ever used Challah bread for French Toast? Well, I never did...until my friend Heather introduced me to it one breakfast many mornings ago. All I can say is that I loved it. I'm not too big on egg-based breads but challah bread is perfect for this. Try it out this weekend if you haven't.
Here is what you will need for making three large Challah French Toasts:
3 large cuts of Challah Bread
2 large Eggs
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2-3 teaspoon of Skim Milk
Non stick cooking spray
Butter and Maple Syrup (I use Sugar Free)
- Get griddle or pan heated on medium-hi heat.
- Beat eggs, cinnamon and milk.
- Place egg mixture into an edged flat plate.
- Dip both sides of bread.
- Spray nonstick cooking spray and place bread in pan. Allow bread to cook 1-2 minutes per side.
- Once cooked, remove from pan, add butter and syrup. Enjoy.
