EVERYONE has been talking about the Pumpkin Spice Oreos that are new this fall season. So, obviously I had to try them to conjure my own opinion. I’ve heard various raves and complaints from, “they taste like a fall Yankee Candle,” all the way to, “I can die happy now.” (more…)
It is currently my favorite season of the year, PUMPKIN FLAVORED THINGS SEASON. So, this morning I decided to try out a new pumpkin scones recipe. They turned out moist and delicious, even those I opted to make them without the sugar laden glaze… I would highly recommend this recipe, I had mine with a cup of green tea with honey, perfect! Pumpkin on, BITCHES!
Since I have been the uber post neglector of the 21st century, I would like to share an interesting chart I found on reddit that shows the differences between emotional and physical hunger. Makes sense when you think about it, huh? Slack on, bitches? Wait no, I’ll get back to posting soon.
At the grocery store, I always buy foods that I think are healthy, even if I do not necessarily know how to cook them or if I even really like them. Chickpeas/garbanzo beans are one of those things. I have also already proclaimed my love for Buzzfeed. I may or may not check Buzzfeed multiple times a day… I swear I don’t have a problem! Uhh. well, I also love lists. A lot. I recently came across this Buzzfeed list, 11 Foods That May Be The Fountain of Youth. #6 on that list was curry powder, “6. Curry powder may prevent the growth of toxic brain cells and prevent Alzheimer’s.” (more…)
This morning I adventured out into the country to a “pick-your-own” farm. This time of the year they had strawberries and black raspberries. If you have never gone to pick your own berries, I would highly recommend it! I got a good tan, and some healthy (pesticide free) amazing berries. I knew I needed to make something with them so I didn’t just sit and eat them all until I got sick. I decided that lemon raspberry scones sounded delicious. Here is the recipe I found, it turned out delicious. Definitely making this again. I can’t wait to go pick more berries next weekend. BAKE ON, BITCHES!
As mentioned in this blog post, I am on a never ending search for the perfect, nutritious, and tasty protein supplement. I have already proclaimed that I had ended my search, however, it has since been reopened. Mini-Me (my younger sister, we are often mistaken as twins), is majoring in Nutrition at her university. I love her health and diet tips and suggestions.
I believe I have recently professed my love of lists and of Buzzfeed. I found another great list from Buzzfeed of 29 Food You Didn’t Know You Could DIY. Included on the list are:
- Tater tots
- Magic shell ice cream coating
- Klondike bars
- English Muffins
- Greek Yogurt
- Sesame Sticks
- Marshmallow Creme
- Homemade Raisins
- DIY Mustard
- Cinnamon Toast Crunch
- Cream Cheese
- and many more!
I didn’t think it was possibly to create such an incredibly delicious dessert with no dairy products… My mini me twin is vegan so we decided to give this recipe from Veggy Wood a try. We only ate half the pan in the first sitting, sooo I guess it turned out okay. The recipe looks super long and intimidating, but don’t worry. It’s not difficult at all. Purchasing lady fingers cuts out a lot of the prep time.
There is an amazing restaurant in my hometown called Pad Thai. Believe it or not, their pad thai noodle dish is absolutely TO DIE FOR. I am not really sure why I haven’t just asked them for their recipe yet, next time I go I certainly will. For now, my never ending quest is to duplicate the delicious flavors in their signature dish. I am pretty sure if I am ever on death row, I would request Pad Thai pad thai noodles. They are that good. I promise. Anyway, here was my most recent attempt, which turned our relatively decent, and I actually pretty much followed the recipe as is!
I decided to proclaim this week Asian week on my blog. I can confidently say that Asian food is one of my favorite kinds of ethnic food. I understand that Asia is a pretty large country, but the Americanized versions Asian dishes found in our restaurants are pretty delicious. I have tried different variations of chicken and coconut milk soup before so I decided to give this Tom Kha Gai (Chicken Coconut Soup) recipe a try! I was lacking some of the ingredients (per usual) so my variations and comments are in BOLD!
