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
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.

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

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!
Today, I chatted with my friend who is studying abroad in Florence, Italy. As you might expect, she raved about all the pizza, pasta, and gelato she’s been eating. Sometime in the middle of our conversation, I found myself thinking about dinner, and how nice it would be to have a big bowl of warm, cheesy pasta. I can’t imagine what might have inspired that thought… … Continue reading The Easiest Mac ‘n Cheese Ever!
This one, I kind of invented as I was making it. I knew the basic ingredients, but I didn’t know how much I was going to use or how it would turn out. I’m happy to report that, despite making an emergency store run for tomato paste halfway through, it was a success! Note that I made my own garam masala because it is SO … Continue reading Another Variation on Tikki Masala
