Roasted Lamb and Winter Squash

November 26, 2013 - No Comments

ANY winter squash is delectable roasted.  On this particular occasion, I had some leftover pumpkin, to which I added some buttercup squash.

Even delicious cold! Which is  simply code for: "I was too lazy/hungry to bother with the microwave."

I adore all of these ingredients by themselves, so I had little doubt I would love the combination.  Turns out, it’s just as fantastic as I imagined! A few notes on things I would do different next time around: 1. Add more filler.  I think I may add more finely shredded cheese next time.  I [...]

Alesinka with Crawfish and Mushrooms

August 15, 2013 - No Comments

I cook such a variety of stews with an eggplant base; I’m audaciously naming this stew after myself. Alesinka is the Polish-ized nickname my mother gave me growing up. Well, it’s the nickname that lends itself better for recipe naming purposes. I don’t think too many people would be keen on eating a recipe named [...]

My father makes the most delicious chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had… unfortunately, he follows the recipe on the back of the Nestle chocolate chip morsel bag, with margarine and eeerything.  Yay for trans fats!  Since I obviously can’t indulge in those life-shortening delicacies but once every year, I decided to try and create a [...]

For some time now, I’ve been looking for a tasty protein bar to tote around in case the dreaded sugar cravings strike. Most protein bars contain soy protein nuggets [Mmmmm, sounds tasty, right?] as their primary protein source. Since I’m allergic to soy, this posses a slight problem. The bottom “crust” layer is made from [...]

My sweet tooth strikes again!  I was craving some delectable chocolate-y goodness, so I decided to create some healthy brownies.  They have 13 grams of carbohydrates, of which a whopping 8 grams is fiber!

I have a GARGANTUAN sweet tooth.  It was a big contributor to my previously obese state.  It turns out that as you lose weight, that sweet tooth is not shed with the pounds.  I’m constantly searching for healthified desserts.  This one is pretty freaking awesome if you like blueberries and the texture of custard.  I [...]
