Three Ingredient Breakfast Bake

1/3 of the ingredients are from the freezer. If you don’t have the other 2/3, I think you’re beyond help. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! The good news is, it’s entirely sugar free. It’s also high in protein. We won’t talk about the cholesterol. We’re trying to stay positive in 2018. It takes…

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 Truffle Fettuccine

This is on the menu at pretty much every Italian restaurant. It’s your classic creamy, cheese, garlicky, truffle scented pasta. I don’t care if it’s overdone! I don’t care if every food blog has a recipe for it! I don’t care if it’s cliched! Huh. Maybe my mom does have a point when she says…

Spicy Cabbage Hash

I ruminated on this title for a long time. Cheesy cruciferous hash was inherently contradictory, the unpretentious former juxtaposed with the intellectual latter (I spent 10 minutes rooting through the dictionary writing that sentence). Red cabbage hash was misleading- there’s no red cabbage in this. Egg, cheese, tomato, cabbage, broccoli, and bell pepper hash got…

Baleadas- Honduras

I was raised on quesadillas. Whole wheat tortillas, a Mexican cheese blend, and some refried beans were a staple in our house. Baleadas are pretty similar to that! They’re sold as a street food in Honduras, and I can see why- they’re quick, easy to take on the go, and they’re delicious. I made mine…

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…

Chiles Rellenos-Guatemala

I’ve been on a health kick recently. I go on a health kick approximately 6 times a month. They last about two days, until I smell fries. It’s all downhill from there. I was in the first stage when I was making this (that’s the one with the 40 minute workouts, snacking on raw almonds,…

Spaetzel-Germany

About 3 years ago, I went to Germany. Honestly? I don’t really like German food. Not my thing. Then, at a restaurant, my sister ordered spaetzel. I ended up eating half the dish, I loved it so much. Kind of like German mac and cheese! I had ordered a pork knuckle, by the way. See,…

Applesauce Mac and Cheese

Yeah, you read that right. How does applesauce mac and cheese not taste disgusting? With the help of cayenne and pesto. Apples and cheese are a classic combo, and a spicy, herby pasta is the perfect place to show that. Feel free to use whatever kind of pasta you have on hand- I was plumb…

Homemade Paneer

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know I adore my mother. The Gilmore Girls have nothing on us. I can go on for hours about all her good qualities, but I’ll sum it up with this: she can make paneer. Paneer, basically, is ricotta’s Indian cousin. Sure, you can…
