Stuffed Acorn Squash With Garbanzo Beans And Kale

A few weeks ago while shopping at my local Wegman’s Grocery Store, I saw the acorn squash in the produce section and thought, “Cool, I can make something pretty easy with this.” Lately, I have been seeking more of just put-it-together recipes, especially since the Fall Semester started up again. That means more projects and…

Made General Tsao’s Chickpeas

Lately, I have been into trying different recipes with chickpeas. I was watching an episode of Delish on YouTube and one of the producers was making General Tsao’s Chickpeas. I thought it was really neat how it treated the chickpeas like you would with frying up chicken. You marinate the chickpeas for a little bit…

Easy Tuna Pasta

Recently, I have been looking for meals that you can just put together in under a few minutes. My schedule has been all over the place and when I come home after a long day I don’t really want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. ( I mean who does?) I found…

Excited For Ice Rinks Opening Back Up

The local ice rinks in my area have finally started to reopen! Right before the shutdown I was going to do a skating test, Senior Solo Free Dance. It is a fairly new discipline of ice dance. I think it has only been around for a few years. Previously, you would’ve had to do dance…

Trying Fresh Figs For the First Time in Oatmeal

I went to Trader Joe’s (or as my mom jokingly calls it Trader Hoe’s haha )this week and saw a container of Fresh Black Figs for $3.99. I thought that was a pretty good deal so I purchased them.  Usually, I only see dried figs in the store and if there are any fresh ones…

Veggie Burger Quesadilla An Easy Quick Dinner Idea

I don’t have a recipe this week, nor did I have the time to cook something fabulous. I have been working a lot of the later shifts at the hospital and don’t have patience when I get off work. I am just hungry! Came home one night with no idea what to eat for dinner….

Boba from Scratch

Boba (a.k.a Tapioca pearls) are small balls made from Tapioca starch and brown sugar.  They are often associated with the Taiwanese drinks such as Boba Milk and Boba Milk Tea.  One theory how the drink came about, was that a guy was stacking boxes of boba and they just happen to fall into his tea…

Making My Own Impossible Whopper

The Impossible Whopper is now being sold at Burger King across the US and has become a bit of a hot topic.  Since I only go to Burger King like once in a blue moon I decided to try making my own burgers with the meat alternative.  Before I go into the recipe I wanted…

2 Ingredient Donuts For National Donut Day

In honor of National Donut Day, I made the 2 Ingredient Donuts. My frying skills aren’t that great, but they came out pretty tasty…even the “extra crispy ones.” The dough is made from self rising flour and plain yogurt. In my case I made self rising flour by adding baking powder and salt to my…
