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.) I’m talking 15-25 grams of sugar for … Continue reading Chai Tea Concentrate
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!
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
First, and most importantly, I got the original recipe from this site. Second, and almost equally as importantly, a few notes: Yes, I am aware that this looks like baby food It really is good. Really, it tastes good. I promise! Now, on to less important matters. This recipe is another one from my meal plan. By the way, I’m doing rather well at sticking … Continue reading Lemon Lentil Soup
This week, I’m basically living on garbanzo beans. I wasn’t originally planning on posting the second one, but it was way, way too good not to. Thus why there aren’t a lot of pictures.. I’ve also been working on cleaning up my eating, so the nutrition facts are temporarily back. Over my winter break, instead of studying for the GRE more like I should’ve been, … Continue reading Two Delicious Garbanzo Beans Recipes
This last weekend, Winco put broccoli on sale. Now, recently I have really been enjoying cooked broccoli with rice, but I always have a hard time spending the $2.50ish a head it usually costs (have I mentioned that I’m cheap?) So, when my roommate came home from the store and told me she’d got two heads for just over two dollars, I was ecstatic! A … Continue reading Hummus with homemade Tahini!
I wasn’t actually planning on making this a post, so I don’t have any pictures…but hey, it’s my first post, so oh well. This is the first thing in a while I’ve actually been excited about making. A few weeks ago, my mom sent me a few recipes from a magazine featuring chick peas, or, as I prefer to call them, “garbanzo beans”. When I … Continue reading First post: Tikka Masala
