Ajvar- Kosovo

Ajvar is a type of pepper relish. It has garlic, roasted red peppers, and you can spread it on bread. I’m sold. It’s the simplest thing in the world to make, and barely takes 10 minutes. If you already have jarred roasted red peppers, it’ll take maybe 5 minutes. Perfect if you need to make…

Eggs Benedict

Eggs Benedict might sound fancy and intimidating- like something Throckmorton Philippe the Third might eat for breakfast, or something you’d get for $40 at the new brunch place in Pittsburgh. Is Pittsburgh cool yet? I can never tell if people hate Pittsburgh ironically or not. You won’t be able to hate these Eggs Benedict- not…

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.

Cake Mix Cake (But Don’t Tell Anyone)

Right. Here’s how it went down. I, the ultimate food snob, made a cake mix cake. It wasn’t on purpose. It was going to go bad! And I wanted cake without putting any real effort into it. Holiday stress is getting to me. Well, my stress isn’t really caused by the holidays, but if I’m…

Footi Sauce- Guinea

Winter is just about here. The temperature dipped from 80 to 30 degrees overnight. It’s so COLD. And I’m really bitter that I couldn’t wear all my fall outfits. I have a sweater that I can only wear when it’s 50 degrees out, which will have to wait for spring now. And I have to…

Applesauce

It’s the dead of winter, folks. You can use this as evidence to prove global warming is fake! Because, if you’re cold right now, how can the earth be warming up? (Sarcasm. Heavy sarcasm. Very, very heavy sarcasm.) The only fruit around right now are apples and oranges- and the best way to use apples…
