Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

Hi there! I like to form the polenta into rounds and bake them with a little Parmesan or shredded cheese sprinkled on top. Not the healthiest option, but they sure taste good.


i like to get that kind of texture from polenta when the outside is all crispy like that!


I was happy to see a post on polenta because I thought not many people know about this. My ancestors were from Northern Italy so polenta is a dish I am quite familiar with. When my mom was alive she would cook the polenta to a creamy consistency and then serve it with this kind of Italian cooked salami and marinara sauce on top of the polenta.

As a child we ate leftover polenta fried on the stove top or as a side dish. I like your idea of mixing in arugula with it. I just both some instant polenta and I'm going to try that.


That entire dinner looks SOOOO good!!!

I like to make lasagna with leftover polenta... :)


I love baked polenta. I usually just chop it into triangles or circles, bake it, and top it with a little marinara sauce and an egg, really good and cheap! Nice bokeh on the pale ale picture (I'm trying to learn camera terms hopefully I used it right) :)


I would love to try it out. I bet that it tastes so good.
