Cinnamon Carrot Soup

My boyfriend loves carrots.  He’s probably part rabbit with how excited he gets when I present him with just a  raw pealed carrot.  One time I was at the store and I impulsively bought a huge bag of carrots.  It was like 5 pounds.  I have no idea what I was thinking.  Even with how […]

Corn Chowder and Dumplings

Corn Dumpling Soup

I’m starting to be a little wary of spicy corn soups.  I absolutely love the, but sometimes they don’t come out quite right.  The last time I made a spicy corn soup, it turned pink. Not just slightly pink either, it was bright pepto-bismol pink with bright yellow corn in it.  My friend described it […]

Calzones

Calzones

Calzone recipes are good for a lot of things (like filling hungry bellies), but they were especially handy last week.  I was traveling for work for a few days.  It was exciting because it was my first business trip and I felt super official plus I was going to Washington and got to see a […]

Mac and Cheese

My boyfriend is away this week house sitting for some friends.  Normally when he’s gone for an evening working at the hospital or out with friends, I like the time to catch up on my girly shows and eat whatever I want.  But a whole week?!  We’ve done long distance before (1 1/2 years total between […]

Cheese Fondue

Cheese Fondue

Sometimes I get a little bit too excited over little things.  For example, yesterday Pandora started playing “Hit Me Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears and I’m ashamed to admit I was so excited, I started texting people about it. Another thing that gets me feeling overly giddy is anything free.  If I see […]

Quesadilla Pizza

Quesadilla Pizza

There have been times in my life where I lived on quesadillas.  I’ve always been a picky eater and cheese and bread are my go-to foods.  You can’t go wrong.  The quesadilla was one of my favorite combinations of the two.  Some people just stick it in the microwave, but the key is to make […]

Spicy Blackened Tilapia

Spicy Blackened Tilapia

I’m trying to be adventurous.  I’m a fairly picky eater and I tend to stay away from meats and fish, but I’ve been trying to branch out.  When my boyfriend orders meat or seafood at a restaurant, I’ll try a bite.  It’s a big step for me.  Usually I’m not a huge fan of what he […]

Chinese Steamed Buns

Chinese Steamed Buns

I first tried Shinese steamed buns when a vegan friend prepared an elaborate dinner for a little party.  They were delicious.  Whenever I try to find Chinese steamed buns like her’s, they ALWAYS have pork in them.  That’s when I took matters into my own hands.  “I can bake, and I can cook.  I should […]

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Tomato Gorgonzola Soup

Until recently, I didn’t really like soup.  Something about drinking food with chunks in it seemed really weird to me.  That was until I went to this small soup shop in Tacoma, Washington called Infinite Soups.  I had a tomato gorgonzola soup, and it was amazing.  Since then, I have tried other soups and they’ve […]

My First Time Making Sushi

December 20, 2011
Sushi

Have you ever wanted to make sushi, but didn’t because it seemed too intimidating?  That was me for a while.  As it turns out, it’s not scary.  Since I’ve been cooking more, I feel like I’ve been getting better at it and I’m more confident.  Last week when my boyfriend requested I make sushi, I didn’t […]
