Butternut Squash Baked Vegetarian Taquitos

Butternut Squash Baked Vegetarian Taquitos

Most Mexican places have vegetarian options.  Cheese enchiladas, bean and cheese burritos, stuff like that.  What I never ever ever see is vegetarian taquitos.  It’s a shame because taquitos are basically fried tortillas around (meat) stuffing and it sounds quite delicious. I saw roasted veggie taquitos and I knew that I could do the same […]

September – Soufflé

September 1, 2013
Cheese Souffle

Welcome to the first month of The Scary Adventure!  This month we will be focusing on soufflé.  Here I’ve collected pages and videos I’ve found to be helpful.  I’ve also created an Amazon store filled with all the tools you’ll need. First thing I searched for was a Good Eats video about soufflé.  Alton Brown explains things […]

Cheddar Biscuits

If I could live in my PJ pants, I probably would.  Putting on “real” pants is always the worst part about getting up in the morning, and as soon as I get home from work I switch to my PJ pants.  On weekends, I’ll lounge around in them as long as I can.  I know […]

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 […]

Ricotta Cheese

I love cheese. I think that probably 90% of the thinks I make contain cheese.  One day I was thinking about how awesome it would be to make some cheese myself.  I think there was a Groupon for a cheese making kit or something like that.  So I went out and bought some stuff to […]

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 […]

My Favorite Enchiladas

Veggie Enchiladas

When I moved to Phoenix, I naïvely thought there would be tons of delicious Mexican restaurants.  I actually struggled to find any that were halfway decent and not incredibly sketchy/in bad areas of town.  Several places just served grease on a plate and would call it whatever you ordered.  “Oh, that nasty cheese filled slab […]

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 […]

Smoky Corn Soup

Smoky Corn Soup

I’ve been a little obsessed with corn.  I’m not sure why, because I’ve never really been a huge corn fan.  Yet for some reason, when I went to the grocery store the other day and I saw fresh corn, I couldn’t stop putting more and more in my basket.  It started out as “Oh, I’ll […]

Honey Wheat Pretzels

Wow, things have been busy here.  I’ve been working full time, I had two tests since I last posted, and I visited my sister in Atlanta.  Whew.  Luckily, it’s the weekend and I’ve FINALLY had time to make something worthy of posting.  Pretzels!  Since I’ve been so bad about posting, I also included a recipe […]
