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…

Cranberry Walnut Scones

You can’t have high tea without scones! To be specific, these cranberry walnut scones. I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to scones- I don’t like matcha, chocolate, or carrots. I’ve seen them all. To me, scones should have some fashion of dried red berries, a few nuts, and should be slathered with…

Austrian Vanillekipferl

These are crumbly, buttery, and dusted with powdered sugar. They melt in your mouth and cover your fingers with powdered sugar. They are essentially the same thing as the 48 count box of Christmas cookies you can get at any supermarket. But, these are Austrian, and have a name you have to read once or…

Spanakopita- Greece

Yes, I know I haven’t posted on here very frequently, but I recently contracted the plague and have been in a life and death in battle (translation: I have a cold). Between studying and coughing my guts out and making hamburgers in the image of my dog, it’s been busy. Anyways, I was kind of…

Papusa and Slaw- El Salvador

If you liked the Bruneian Murtabak, you’re going to love this. These are a popular street food in El Salvador- and I think they’re going to become a staple here. Usually, papusa are served with a cabbage and jicama slaw, but I couldn’t find jicama anywhere, so I just threw in a ton of cilantro!…

Banana Fritters- Djbouti

You ain’t seen the last of me. I’m back, with more garlic and repressed trauma than ever. Oh, and banana bread bites. That’s an alliterative alternative to the recipe title. It tastes just like banana bread! Which is good, cause I love banana bread. I feel very strongly about baked goods. I either love them…

Applesauce Muffins

Want to make your life easier, and possibly extend it? Step this way, folks! Make a batch of these muffins at your earliest possible convenience, and thank me later. You might think I’m making too big a deal out of this, that I’m making a mountain out of a molehill. But really, it’s more like…

Murtabak-Brunei

Lamb is good. Very good. Extraordinarily good. Back in the old days, when I was but a wee baby myself (like, 6 years ago), we went on a trip to Amsterdam. On a farm there, I met a bunch of sheep, whom I collectively addressed as my dinner. I was such a charming child. Hours…

Papas Rellenos- Bolivia

I know it’s early in the new year, and everyone is trying to eat healthy, so this recipe is basically just a boiled egg. Covered in potatoes. Dipped in a batter. And fried. But hey, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? You know the world’s gone crazy when a narcissist food blogger with…
