Sesame Noodles

Sesame Noodles

Honestly, I’m in a cooking rut. For every delicious dessert I write about (and I don’t even write about those frequently nowadays), there’s several evenings’ worth of dinner that I’m not interested in cooking. I can’t make a weekly dinner plan to save my life […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

Some people adore the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, all the time. I’m not one of them. I only like it sometimes, when I’m in the right mood for it. But once I’m in the mood for chocolate peanut butter, I devour it! When […]

Chickpeas with Spinach

Chickpeas with Spinach

This recipe, Chickpeas with Spinach, has been one of my favorite quick meals to make recently. Originally an appetizer, I decided it looked substantial enough for a meal. I felt the same way about the version of it I made several years ago, too. That […]

Smoky Cashew Dip

Smoky Cashew Dip

It’s been longer than I’d like to admit since I last posted a recipe here. I haven’t stopped cooking. It’s simply that I hadn’t made much until December that I had to write about, and we all know how busy December can be. To motivate […]

Fajitas

Fajitas

I finally have a favorite recipe for fajitas. It’s delicious, fast, and incredibly easy to make. Previously, I made (some probably-ok-by-90s-standards) fajitas before using a recipe from a cookbook I’d had for years; they were always tasty, but I recall the recipe being a little […]

Irish Soda Scones

Irish Soda Scones

In the past for St. Patrick’s Day, I’d made Chocolate Stout Cake (as both a Bundt Cake and as cupcakes), which I’ll probably do again with the leftover Guinness in my fridge. Yesterday I simply didn’t have that kind of motivation for the holiday, didn’t […]

French Toast Peanut Butter and Jelly

French Toast Peanut Butter and Jelly

I don’t make French Toast. I generally find it soggy, eggy, or both. I enjoy it occasionally if I go out for brunch, but it’s usually hit-or-miss as to whether I like it. I think I’ve attempted to cook it twice in my lifetime, neither […]

Caramel Pork

Caramel Pork

Tonight for dinner I made Caramel Pork. This meal was quick, easy, and delicious, so I wanted to be sure to write about it while it was still fresh in my mind. Before I roasted a pork loin yesterday, I cubed about a pound of […]

Coriander-Crusted Tuna with Black Bean Salsa

Coriander-Crusted Tuna with Black Bean Salsa

It’s just the beginning of March, but tonight I had a taste of summer. Last summer I made various salsas to go with chicken and fish. Sure, they were all kind of similar, but you can’t really go too wrong the combination of tomatoes, bell […]

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

I realize it’s been 2 weeks (!) since my last update. I’ve been busy! We went to Las Vegas last weekend (awesome trip, by the way), and I spent the week before and afterward getting all of my reading and homework done for the meteorology […]
