Kheer-India

Kheer-India

Kheer is kind of like rice pudding- and is eaten all over India. Every state in India is like a different country, they all have their own languages and cuisines. I almost skipped this, because I didn’t want to take sides. But kheer? Kheer is […]

Three Ingredient Breakfast Bake

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 […]

Garlic Bread

Garlic Bread

There is a kind of independence that comes with making garlic bread. You don’t need anyone! Or any Italian  restaurants! You can make garlic bread whenever, wherever. Well, as long as you have baguettes, garlic, parsley, and olive oil. This is not to be confused with garlic-cheese bread, which is a cheesy, creamy, decadent affair. This garlic bread is simple, ready in 10 minutes, and the perfect side to pasta! Or, you know, eat it as a main course. This is objectively healthier- you see, if you eat garlic bread and pasta (the latter of which will probably be covered in heavy sauce and cheese), then you’re getting twice the calories, fat, and carbohydrates. Whereas, if you eat just garlic bread, which has VEGETABLES, it’s healthier. No more questions, please.

 

INGREDIENTS

2 baguettes

1 head of garlic

3 oz parsley

3 tablespoons olive oil

Start by peeling the garlic and throwing it into the food processor. Give it a whir so it’s all sliced up. See, I don’t like chopping garlic. And I feel like a fraud! I love garlic, and I love cooking, but I don’t like chopping garlic? Does this mean I don’t like garlic? Does this mean that I’m a bad cook? Do I have to turn in my apron and whisk? Is it bad that I take chopping garlic more seriously than the president takes the future of this country?

Throw in the parsley, and get that all chopped up too.

Then pour in the olive oil, and blend it until it’s a flavorful paste. This is actually a blender. My food processor has gone to the big kitchen in the sky. On the bright side, my oven is finally fixed! It’s amazing! I can bake things! I was on the verge of building a clay oven, throwing in newspaper and a match, and sticking in some pizza dough. I said newspaper because it burns easily and I don’t have any wood. Not because I want to burn the likenesses of the president and his whole administration. Oh no, definitely not.

Preheat the oven to 350 F, and slice the baguettes in half, lengthwise. Spread the paste on. 

On a whim, I sprinkled on some mozzarella. Worse things have happened.

Bake it for about 15 minutes, slice it up, and eat it warm!

Blueberry-Vanilla Oatmeal Bars

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 […]

Orzo Stuffed Fennel

I. Love. Fennel. It may not be in season anymore, but I don’t let little things like that bother me. I will find fennel. And so help me, I will stuff it and bake it. Today, it’s a Mediterranean orzo salad. Tomorrow it could be […]
