Another post of a recipe from one of the cookbooks my mother let me borrow….This one is from the William’s Sonoma Mayo Clinic Cookbook. In case you’re wondering, my roommate and I are currently sharing meals (usually we would do our own groceries and such) so that we can try as many of these recipes as possible before school starts/I have to give back the … Continue reading Mushroom and Chicken Tetrazzini
It’s been a while since I posted. And by a while…I mean a very very long while. What can I say? Life happens. Boyfriends cook food for you. Spring Break. Finals. Etc. The important thing is that I’m back in business, at least for now. So, a brief summary: I moved into a new house. Not an apartment, a house. With new roommates, a jungle … Continue reading Fettucine with Cranberry Beans and Pesto
Recently, I’ve been on a chai tea latte kick. It all started when I learned how to make a London Fog (or something very similar) at home….and since then, I’ve been drinking less coffee and more tea lattes. However, the problem with store-bought chai tea concentrate is the massive amount of sugar in it. (And, it’s fairly expensive.)

This weekend, I made some absolutely amazing food (which, of course, I’m not going to post because I didn’t take pictures..) The problem with that is that my food that was supposed to last a week was eaten over the course of the 3-day weekend, and Monday evening rolled around with only one meal of food left. Can you think of a better time for … Continue reading Super easy lentil/bean soup!

I realize the idea of spinach in oatmeal sounds disgusting…but it turned out great! I’m definitely planning on making this again. Over…and over…and over. The only complaint I have about it … Continue reading Overnight Oats-with Spinach!
This recipe originated from a need to get rid of a giant head of cabbage (really, aren’t all cabbage heads seemingly never-ending?) without making anything too complicated. I looked around a bit and found several recipes resembling fried rice. Now, I did have rice in my cupboard….but I didn’t particularly want to take the time to cook it. (It was around nine pm, and I … Continue reading “Fried Couscous” aka couscous with cabbage
The past couple weeks, I’ve been really wanting clam chowder for some reason. Now, my issue with clam chowder is that it traditionally uses a lot of cream…and I have a hard time putting that much into a “main dish”. Luckily, I found a recipe that didn’t use cream, and it actually turned out really good! Modified from this recipe 1 onion 2 T minced … Continue reading Clam Chowder!
