Kickass Lasagna

Standard

I hate tomato sauce, so I’m going to rely on the words of my roomies and my boss, all of whom I fed this, to make sure you know it’s good. Everyone ate it up and seemed to really, super enjoy it, so I think it was a success. They had lasagna, I had salad. ūüôā I didn’t take any pictures, because it was the ugliest lasagna I have ever made (and the only, so hey.)

I ganked the recipe from AllRecipes with some edits.  Continue reading

Honey Toast Cafe Review

Standard

So, since Amazon Local had a deal, I got 16 bucks to spend at this new place called Honey Toast Cafe. What it is, is caramelized toast, with a ton of awesome stuff on top. They also had a few other sides and meals that were small, but clearly that monster of sugar and ice cream was the main treat.

Banana-Nutella Granola Bars

Standard

What can I do to make my mornings as easy as humanly possible while still managing not to spend money at work? Cook the night before! With 3 people here, I made 6 egg boats but those will only last so long, so I wanted to make an easy snack for people to eat.

Granola bars are one of those hella easy things you can add a million things to and have still turn out awesome. In this case, I took this recipe¬†and edited it. I’ve made it dozens of times the way they do, and it’s good, I just wanted to try a different variation this time.

That being said.

Wasabi and Panko Crusted Pork

Standard

So with the new addition of Brig into our household, more asian food is taking hold. I needed something that’d help me get over being sick and so it’s chili peppers tomorrow night, but wasabi tonight! ¬†

This is a spin on Cooking Light’s recipe for Wasabi and Panko Crusted Pork, though with some variation. ¬†I will say I’m not a huge fan of anything fried save for some special sushi, so this isn’t exactly my cup of tea, but the sauce you make is pretty damn good.¬†

Roasted Tomato Soup

Aside

We’re all sick here, just before the grand ol’ moving day. We’re moving officially on the 10th, and we’ll be all moved in by the 15th or so, we’re hoping. Should be fun? ¬†That being said, we got our newest roomie yesterday, just in time for Butters’ birthday and in time for both Butters and I to fall ill. I ended up not working today and instead sleeping for 14 hours, waking up, and ¬†realizing all the food we had required me to actually make it. Shit sucks. So, when people are sick, normally I opt for chicken noodle soup, but in this case all we’ve had the last 3 days is pho, which, I LOVE, but I’m so done with. We’re on a break, because I need to eat solids. ūüė¶

Tea!

Standard

I am a pretty big tea drinker normally, but haven’t been to Teavana in a while, which is my normal stop for drinking tea. That being said, the reason¬†why is this little thing:¬†

This tea, without a doubt, is probably my favorite all-purpose tea. Need something that doesn’t require any effort to make (ex: timing your tea to see how long until it’s steeped)? Need something that doesn’t need sugar or milk? Need something that’s pretty decently cheap and smells amazing?

This tea. 

It’s so good, holy shit, my roomie and I have been buying 2-3 at a time when we hit Fred Meyer’s or Winco or whatever else, since they’re usually about 2.50 a pop for like 18 bags. They’re delicious, just sweet enough, don’t require sugar or milk and I say this being someone who always– ALWAYS has sugar and milk okay.¬†

I highly recommend that if you ever have a chance to try it, it’s the nectar of the gods.
