I was inspired to make bread pudding after having an experience that I’m sure many of you can relate to. You land yourself some nice bread and for a few days you eat it at every possible moment. It’s fresh, it’s chewy, it’s delicious, you love it. Then a couple days or so go by. […]Read more "Thrifty Thinking: Bread Pudding"
I’m baaaaaaaaaack. These past four days have probably been the longest, worstest, and blog-less this year. Back to back papers, sub-zero temperatures, and a cold that has lingered far too long almost did me in. BUT I survived by clinging to the light at the end of the tunnel. “Once I finish this paper and […]Read more "Prodigal Chef: Mulligatawny Soup"
I like to eat. We know that, right? Cool. I’ve always liked eating and for a long time I was only really interested in how food got from the grocery store to my house and eventually into my mouth. In the past few years however, my interest has extended beyond consumption and into production. It […]Read more "Two Timing: Roasted Squash and Kabocha Ginger Cake"
First things first, it snowed this weekend! Our lovely city was transformed(for about 12 hours) into a magical mystical winter wonderland! Unfortunately I was ridiculously sick so I could only gaze longingly out my window at the snow while cursing the people out having snowball fights (till 4AM!!!!) and crying/angstily blowing my nose. Twas a […]Read more "Roasting Up a Storm: Rosemary Chicken, Brussels Sprouts, and Smashed Potatoes"
Do you ever have those days where you’re really craving two very different but delicious food items? You know that it’s a weird combination but apart they’re so delicious that you can’t resist? That’s were I was at Thursday. I had fresh asparagus I needed to use up and I was also dying for shrimp. […]Read more "Odd Couple: Asparagus Risotto and Chili Garlic Shrimp"
So I gave being healthy a shot. I really did. I made that soup and it was super awesome. I thought about working out and even watched some hockey (not by choice) this week. But there are so many temptations! I am still eating the soup leftovers and I generally have a pretty healthy diet with […]Read more "I’m Usually More Into Brunettes: Chocolate, Coconut, and Walnut Blondies"
I’d like to start this post by giving a shout out to all my freaky friends that can’t eat gluten, dairy, meat, etc. This soup is for you. After hanging out with some of yall this weekend and talking about your various food allergies I decided to make something that you all could eat too.

So the past days have been nothing short of pure madness. I spent the last 48 hours in a Chuck Berry laced state of delirium. Having an 8 page paper worth 25% plus an econ problem set due on the same day is not an ideal situation, especially when you procrastinate like I do. So […]Read more "A Lazy Baker’s Dream: Whole Wheat No-Knead Bread"
So first off I have to give mad props to my roommate for coming up with this title. My idea had diverged into an obscure reference to flight of the conchords (making a pot pie…for one) but thankfully she reigned me back in. Do you get it? Flying Solo? Individual Chicken Pies? Flying? Chicken? Solo? […]Read more "Flyin Solo! Individual Chicken Pot Pies"
Too really enjoy cooking, you’ve got to either have people to cook with or people to share your food with. Yes, I do enjoy making myself a nice meal every now and then and eating it alone, but the meals I enjoy the most are ones I’ve either made with or shared with friends and […]Read more "Comfort Cooking: Broccoli Soup and Red Lobster Biscuits"
