Carbs. Perfect for everything.
I like using heart shaped cookie cutters, molds, stamps, whatever. My middle name is Love (seriously), and I’m normally a huge cheeseball. I like to draw heart shaped sriracha on food I give to Michael.
Love love love love hearts *puke*. I make myself sick!
It was our 3 year anniversary yesterday, so I post something heart shaped in lieu of a proper related post.
Put this on macaroni, cauliflower, fries, dip things into it. Dear god.
Killer as in awesome, not deadly. That wouldn’t be good.
This recipe is for a creamy cheese sauce, with a blend of sharp white cheddar and regular cheddar, cracked black pepper and cayenne pepper. You get the sharpness of the cheese cutting through the richness of the cream, and a little pop of heat from the peppers. Amazing.
Nostalgia, alll over the place.
Just a quick-ish post. My mother made these for Michael and I last weekend 🙂 I asked. It was one of my favourite things she used to make!
Yeah these were good AND easy!
So I went to Donalds Market earlier in the week and they had whole cartons of peaches for $2.99! So I had to buy them and I had to make something.
I have a new soup related love.
There’s this new place down the street that we go for our Pho nowadays, but they have this one type that just blows me away.
We needed one of those...uh.. "Rejuvinatin' Greasy Breakfasts" to counter an over consumption of a certain type of liquid.
We headed down to the Slocan for some All Day Breakfast. I had never been there, and yelp said it was alright. The only other “close as we want to walk” was some placed called Tom and Jerry’s, which features a banner of some Budweiser girls from the 90’s and boasts about $4 awful beer on tap. (not that I judge, I’ve been to many a scuzzy place, they’re just reserved for french fries and karaoke).
They were good!
One of my facebook fans straight up asked if I could try and make some brownies she’d had at a fundraiser, and gave me the description. I’m not sure if I came even close, but regardless these were tasty!
I guess I do requests now!
These are my “fudgey brownies with a peanut-buttery milk chocolate topping with mini chocolate chips”.
It's just you and me noodles. (And Michael) But mostly you an' me.
You know I love spicy, asian-y, cilantro-y, peanut-y, whatever else-y can describe my tastes. This is a dish I’ve started to make much more often because it’s just so easy. And I have not just one, but TWO ways to make this! Golly! (there’s way more ways than two, I might have lied)
This isn't a coffee flavoured cake, it's a cake you eat with coffee!
This is a type of cake my mother used to always make. Especially when we had fresh plums! This works great with any kind of fruit, and the base is incredibly forgiving.
Just a quick post before bed!
I made a sundried olive and rosemary focaccia and pasta with italian sausage, fire roasted tomatoes, mushrooms and fresh basil!
Focaccia recipe here:http://raptortoe.com/2010/10/06/tomato-focaccia/ Just replace tomatoes with same amount of pitted sundried olives and throw in some rosemary.
For the pasta, sautee two italian sausages removed from the casing until browned, add 1/2 cup roughly chopped mushrooms.
Add 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes, or just diced tomatoes, strain if too much liquid. Cook and reduce until thickened, season with salt and pepper.
Add a small handfull of fresh minced basil and toss with your favourite pasta!
I wanted a good cherry recipe, and since everyone else is making clafouti, I went the scone direction.
Will make again, and again.
I don’t wanna call these thai, maybe moreso “thai inspired”, or “east asian inspired” but whatever. They’re DAMN good and that’s all that matters.
Spicy and doughy! Just like me!
Payday isn’t until the 10th, so I’m still working with what I got.
You all know about my Sriracha obsession, but did you know we also have a problem with Frank’s Red Hot?
Unexpected bills sometimes make you broke, as a result of one we’re a bit broke until next pay. So, for frugality’s sake, I’m going to dig into the recesses of my cupboards to make dinner for the next few days. I am only going to use what’s in my pantry/freezer/fridge.
I probably should’ve done this a long time ago, there are a lot of random things in there… I think I need to do a “cupboard inventory” just to make sure I actually USE what I have!
Yes! I did.
I bought some corn tortillas to make tacos for dinner one night. Was great, but I ended up with (and still have) a TON of them left.
Perfect little bites!
I gave Michael instructions on how to throw together a slow-cooker chili while I was at work, and made these as soon as I came home!
I got the recipe from Serious Eats, but it’s a simple recipe I’ve made before! They just inspired me 🙂
Smells like movie-theater popcorn and toasts like brioche!
I can’t make soup and not have bread. Or crackers. Mostly bread. And butter. Mostly butter.
It sounds fancy but it soooo isn't.
I tried summing this recipe up, but it kept ending up as a “that’s what she said” joke. So we’ll just say they’re good! Easy too!
A nice lunch!
I wasn’t sure what to make for lunch, I was thinking pasta, but I had some bacon and eggs and it sounded perfect!
I loves me some bread and vinegar!
I love no knead bread, and try -“try” to always have a big batch of dough in the fridge at all times. But sometimes it’s hard to keep a big bucket in the fridge, when other things could be going in there. Like, I dunno, vegetables.
Go HERE for the No Knead dough recipe!
Yum yum yum!!
I think I’ve told you before how much I love peanut butter and chocolate. If not, I apologize. I LOVE IT!!
I’ve been sick for a while now, just a cold that wont go away, and I needed something comforting. But that comfort needed to be accessible. So I threw these together with what I had.
This was SO worth how terrible it is for me, btw.
Poutine is a Canadian thing. I’ve met a few Americans who have NO idea what it is, which I find surprising, because a lot of “down home American food” consists of the same ingredients. Fries, cheese curds and gravy.
But this was far from traditional, but oh sooooo delicious.
Perfect Sunday breakfast!
We are pretty much grocery-less in this house, need to go do that tonight.
I did what I could for breakfast! I always seem to have flour and leavening agents. But I was lucky enough to have a tub of sour cream kickin’ around as well!
