2 Ingredient Pizza Dough

  Fresh pizza is one of my favorite things, but it takes forever to make and rise. Not anymore. I was recently out of yeast, but I really wanted fresh pizza. Enter greek yogurt and self rising flour. Two ingredients, and no rising time. The rumors are true. Fresh pizza crust is so good, you…

Roasted Vegetables- Iceland

I know little to nothing about Icelandic cuisine- or any Northern European cuisine, for that matter! My expertise is limited to Ikea meatballs. I love Ikea meatballs. So, I asked my sister, who went to Iceland last year. My vegetarian sister. Icelandic cuisine is very heavily based on meat, fish, yogurt- and these vegetables. So…

Truffle Cavatappi and Cheese

This is it. This is the best use for truffle paste. I’m cutting truffle week short: making it a Monday-Friday week, just because I have peaked. I was going to make truffle meatballs: useless! Utterly useless! I was going to be a smart aleck and make chocolate truffles: what’s the point? Because this, this, this…

Creamy Bok Choy Soup

Want to impress someone (this can include yourself) in a hurry? Make this soup. It sounds fancy, looks great, tastes delicious, and takes 3 ingredients and 10 minutes. My kind of dish! Now, I know how fond adults are of saying “You’re young! How can you be so tired!”. Well, you see, I study all…

Hummus

I love hummus. I really love hummus. Hummus and I, we just get each other. Which is why the storebought hummus is so offensive to me. I don’t know what that pasty, dry, acidic stuff is, but it ain’t hummus. Hummus is so easy to make, you’ll stop buying the cardboard stuff  altogether. It can…

No-Bake Cheesecake

Let me tell you a little story. There was cream cheese about to go bad. And I wanted cheesecake. So, I decided to make cheesecake. Y’all with me so far? Good. So, I arrange all my ingredients. I’ve decided to make a classic cheesecake with berries on top. I’ve taken my ingredient shot, when I…

Blueberry-Vanilla Oatmeal Bars

I’ve been making oatmeal cookies from a recipe on the back of a Trader Joe’s bag for years. My family loves them, they’re healthy, and they have chocolate. Those three don’t usually happen together. They’re delicious, but have a ton of butter and sugar. I realize that might make the health part seem redundant, but…

Guacamole

If, like everyone else in this deep fried-calorie rich greaseball we call America, your New Year’s resolution was to start eating healthier, but you also don’t want to forsake everything good in life, make some guacamole. Avocados are full of fat, yes, but the good kind. Like people say all press is good press, all…

Christmas Tea Extras

Here are quick recipes, photos, and monologues for all the stuff I didn’t take complete pictures of.   Here’s the whipped cream- I was going to make clotted cream, but the thought of leaving a dish of heavy cream in the oven overnight made me nervous. Still tasted good with scones! Speaking of scones, I…

Apple Butter

If you’re looking for something a little different, try having this with scones. It’s much richer than applesauce, but just as simple to make. My sister eats it warm with a spoon- but she’s an electrical engineer, so I don’t know if you should follow her choices. This isn’t limited to scones- try it on…
