In this edition of Sunday Snapshots I’d like to share with you just a few of the things that have been in my kitchen lately. Some of the foods are favorites that I have previously shared recipes for, and others are new techniques or recipes I’ve been developing. I hope you enjoy this little kitchen tour.
Fresh green beans are available right now and my favorite way of cooking them is in this Mexican dish. It is called ejotes con huevos or green beans with eggs. You can find the recipe here. It is very simple and I’m sure you’ll love it — hubby and I do.
I learned to spatchcock a chicken! It was as fun preparing the chicken as it was saying the word.:) This is the link to the video I learned the technique from.
Previously I shared my recipe for homemade soy milk. You can find the recipe here.
I use the soy milk in my coffee and tea. If there is any leftover sometimes I use it oatmeal or granola. I didn’t this time, next time.
Lately I’ve been enjoying oatmeal for breakfast. This day I topped the oatmeal with fresh blueberries and cinnamon spiced pecans from Amelia’s Spicing Pecans. You can buy the pecans here.
On this day I topped with cherries, probably the last ones of the season. The pecans were coffee spiced and are also from Amelia’s. The dark liquid is date syrup — more on that soon.
That’s it, I hope you enjoyed seeing the foods that have been in my kitchen, and tummy, lately. Have a great Sunday and a great week ahead.
Nice clicks and wonderful food!
Love what’s happening in your kitchen lately… looks like a fun place to be. That chicken looks amazing!

Wonderful recipe! Love the side note letting us know that it is paprika and not blood from under cooked chicken! :-)
It seems everything I cook has a yellow hue because I use turmeric in just about everything!
Love your pics.. you made me laugh at paprika:) MUCH more appetizing..
what chubby little thighs:)
They look good on your chicken:)

Loved the red in the first photos. Beautiful. And I laughed over chickenzilla. I definitely want to come eat at your house!
Interesting post. Chickenzilla, funny:). That chicken looks sooooo good cooked, I can’t wait to try something like that at home. First, I’ve go to go through the tutorial, thanks for sharing.
That’s one of the best looking raw chicken pictures I’ve ever seen! Good job. A lotta fun stuff here – thanks for sharing.
Great and tasty looking photos!

Beautiful snaps, I’d love to wake up to one of your oatmeal bowls for breakfast!
I was kinda hoping it was blood! Lol. I think I have Halloween on my brain. I love the red and green in your photos it has me dreaming of Christmas and cookies, sigh. I cut my chickens a couple time like that and was suprised it’s a little harder than I thought. Loving your Sunday recap.
Red background – how unique, I never used one myself. Was it difficult?
This post was such fun to read. The pictures are stunning, loved the comments, they made me smile.
You made my day, Nancy :)
Foodies eat quite well don’t we? :) I bought some fabulous beans at the market last week and made them last night. After going back and looking at those beans, I can see I’ll be picking up some more beans this week.
You are an amazing photographer
