Corn Chowder and Dumplings

September 29, 2013
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 […]

Step by Step Guide for Making Yeast Breads

August 13, 2013

Today I failed at making a crock pot soup.  They said it couldn’t be done!  Unfortunately, I’m here to tell you that something as easy as a crock pot soup recipe can go horribly wrong.  It started when I wanted my corn soup to be a little spicier and a little creamier.  The result was […]

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 […]

Nazooks

I apologize in advanced.  I held out on you.  I didn’t post this recipe for a VERY long time.  There’s this thing called the Daring Kitchen and they have a division called the Daring Bakers.  They have one recipe a month all the members make and post about on the same day.  You have to do it […]

Empanadas

I have a confession for you.  I’ve never actually had an empanada.  It seems like something I’d love, right?  Delicious goodies baked in a pocket of love and bread.  It’s right up my alley!  Somehow, I just never had one.  I’ve been on a little bit of a Mexican food kick so I decided to […]

Naan – Third Time’s a Charm

February 12, 2012
Naan

Some failures, I post about here (like how I failed and then succeed at making my own pasta).   Other failures make me sad and so I just pretend they never happened and don’t post about them.  I failed at making naan (twice) and never posted here about it because it was just so sad. […]

Fresh Linguine

Fresh Pasta

It took me a long time, but I finally did it.  I made my own pasta – fresh linguine at that. Being a vegetarian in college, pasta was pretty much all I ate.  I had mac and cheese far too often and when it wasn’t mac and cheese, it was some frozen pasta meal.  I […]

Georgian Khachapuri (Cheese Muffins)

Khachapuri

I’ve been having a bad cooking streak.  I forgot sugar in my past 2 recipes!  I was feeling down, and I didn’t really want to cook again.  I knew that if I didn’t make something I loved that I’d be feeling rejected all week.  So when I was thinking of something new to make, I […]
