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 [...]

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 [...]

Oreo Fudge

My family was in town last week.  It’s always great to see them and spend some time with family where I can go back and sleep in my own bed.  Plus they buy me dinner lots and I like that too. At the end of their trip, they gifted me all the snacks and food [...]

Tofu Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce

I recently received a Wüsthof  Chai Dao knife to review.  This post isn’t even part of my review, but that knife is the reason I made this stir fry.  I wanted to chop a lot of vegetables and there is no better way to do that than with stir fry.  I also needed pictures for [...]

Red Wine Tomato Sauce

Everyone needs a good tomato sauce recipe.  This red wine tomato sauce one is my favorite since it can be used for anything from pastas to dips and even on pizza.  I think pizza is probably my favorite application of tomato sauce….and cheese…and bread.  Pizza is amazing. But back to this red wine tomato sauce. [...]

Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

 This week has been rough.  I got summoned for jury duty and then selected, I had a midterm exam for one of my classes, I got behind on blogging, and I had a few things happen in my personal life that added some stress.  Sometimes life is rough.  But on this Saturday morning, I’m feeling [...]

French Onion Soup

I’m struggling with how to start this post. I just want to repeat “I love french onion soup” over and over, but you still probably won’t understand how much I love it. If I’m at a restaurant that serves french onion soup, I’ll either order it or be depressed until I can go back and order [...]

Carrot Souffle

So for September, I challenged myself to make soufflé for The Scary Adventure.  This post is a little late…I was mad at this dish and here’s why.  First, I burned some butter.  Then I made half the soufflé (the part with the egg yolks) and I set it out to let it could cool.  I [...]
