Fake Steak

Fake Steak

This is one of my favorite meals from my childhood – Fake Steak. I have no idea where the recipe originated; it was simply in my mom’s recipe box. When I wanted to make it as an adult, the internet didn’t show me the recipe I remembered, […]

Horchata

Horchata

My friend Kate had a vegan taco night at her house. There are a number of delicious vegan foods – like salsa or guacamole – that I could have made to take that night. Instead, I decided that it was the perfect time for me […]

Hainan Chicken and Rice

Happy Lunar New Year! There are a variety of foods that one is supposed to eat for the lunar new year, but unfortunately, in spite of having spent a year in Japan, I don’t know enough about what those should be. I apparently should have […]

Almond-Vanilla Rice Pudding

Almond-Vanilla Rice Pudding

Ever since I made vanilla pudding a few weeks ago, I’ve wanted more pudding. I finally decided that I was going to take the time to make more. Smitten Kitchen had a few different (and easy) recipes for pudding that I wanted to try, but […]

The Meat Salesroom makes their own sausages, including andouille sausage, so I was inspired to finally make Slow-Cooker Jambalaya. This was pretty easy to make. I cut most of the food up and put it in the crock the night before. I used frozen minced […]

120: Pan-Seared Shrimp and Spinach Risotto

One day for dinner, I decided to make Pan-Seared Shrimp and Arugula Risotto. I couldn’t find arugula at the store, so I decided to thaw some frozen spinach instead. I have a bad habit of not getting my skillets hot enough, which was the case […]

Fiesta – 106-108

Fiesta – 106-108

Cinco de Mayo seems like a good excuse to make a complete Mexican meal. We took this outside last year (chips and salsa, chicken burritos, black beans, margaritas, and fresh air), and I loved it! I decided that we’d take our folding table and chairs […]

94: Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

On Tuesday I decided to make Shrimp and Okra Gumbo. I had some okra left in my freezer, and this sounded like it would have lots of vegetables. This also gave me a chance to use up a little more of the ham I had […]
