How does that saying go? If you didn’t post it, you didn’t eat it?
There’s that too. I am making my way through Friends on Netflix and the episodes are just as good the 20th time around. This one is a definite fave:
Back in the day, thanks to enabling sisters, i was as poor of a chef as Rachel. Like, couldn’t even make scrambled eggs. It was that bad. It wasn’t until senior year of college that I actually started to try more advanced recipes, and my taste buds have been thanking me ever since. The hardest part of cooking is just making sure every element cooks evenly at finishes at the same amount of time. Once you’ve mastered that, there are no excuses.
Anyways, my phone’s photo album is feeling full from all of the delicious homemade food it has captured the past couple months. Click through for the recipes where applicable!
Tex Mex Casserole
So I believe the actual name of this was Crowd Pleasing Tex Mex Casserole (credit goes to the Oh She Glows cookbook), but in Minnesota we would call that right there a textbook “hot dish.” I served this when I had weekly girls dinner at my apartment about a month ago and it sure did please. Any recipe that calls for crushed up tortilla chips on top is fine by me! This wasn’t a difficult recipe but there was a lot of preparation and chopping involved so it took a little longer than promised.
Valentines Day Brunch <3
French toast made by him and smoothie made by her on valentines day morning, followed by hours of mindless Netflix and TV. I believe the smoothie had vanilla greek yogurt, kale, blueberries, banana, OJ, ice. And of course, it was made with love :)
Breakfast 4 Dinner
I never make pancakes for myself so I loooved this dinner at Meghan’s the other night. Complete with mimosas, obviously. And gluten-free! Obviously.
White Chicken Chili
Food moment courtesy of the super hilarious How Sweet Eats blog. This winter I have tried to make a soup or chili every Sunday so I don’t have to worry about lunches during the week. Did you know a cup of soup is insanely expensive these days? Around $4 for a small-ish cup. No thank you to that, yes please to the above and to all the extra change I can now dedicate to a tropical vacation where there is no need for soup.
Muffins are so fun and cute, aren’t they? I made these in the beginning of January and they were gone within a week. I believe it was this recipe. Make sure to add your own chocolate chips and make them even more fun. Almond flour is expensive but I stock up at Trader Joe’s when I’m there.
My first (or maybe second?) time making enchiladas from scratch was a great success. This was time consuming, so I do understand why people buy enchilada sauce from the can. The homemade version is just so much better, though! We used this recipe here, and the only substitution was a red pepper instead of an onion. I’d say our version turned out just like the food blogger version!
So there you have it, people. A few notable meals from 2015. My phone feels so much better now! My next post may be fitness-focused to balance out all of the above cheese.
