salad

Welcome back all! I’m so glad you decided to drop by.

Remember my something out of nothing blog? Well, it’s about that time again. With summer being a busy travel and social time, we have been trying not to overstock and simply use what we have in the fridge so as to minimize waste. SO, wanting a salad but having no lettuce, I took a risk and this is what I came up with. I was pleasantly surprised how refreshing this was. So if you are in the mood for something other than the same old salad, I suggest you give this a try. NOTE: I made this just for myself as a meal. So if you are making this for a side, you might want to consider doubling this recipe.  Read the rest of this entry »

Only picture I got! Sorry!

Only picture I got! Sorry!

Hello all! I know it’s been over a year since I posted. I wrapped up my first year of teaching and that kept me pretty busy. But wanted to give a quick update to get back on track and confirm that I am alive.

So, if you are looking for a one-pot, quick, healthy, and CHEAP dinner (isn’t that the dinner combination we all strive to achieve?), then this is the dinner idea for you. I didn’t take many pictures because I thought to do this blog AFTER the cooking and cleanup!

NOTE: Sorry it’s been such a while since an update. I started this post on June 2, and then life got crazy!!

This is a soup I dreamed up that I originally intended to be somewhat healthy and even vegan. As you can see, neither goal was met….but this soup did turn out quite good. I warn you this is SPICY SPICY SPICY!! Even my husband and friend who ate it, who both like spicy foods, agreed this was SPICY-and that was AFTER I tried to tone it down. So if you don’t like Indian flavors or spicy foods, this isn’t the soup for you. But if you do, you are in for a TREAT! 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »

Welcome back readers!

Today, I wanted to share with you something that is not based on chicken. It’s true we do eat a LOT of chicken in our house. But today, I present to you something vegetarian friendly and, if you skipped topping it with cheese, would also be vegan friendly. It’s a simple dish and took me probably 20 minutes to whip up. My husband LOVED this and even asked if there was more!

First time

Welcome back readers! I think we have been on vacation long enough. After coming back from the OBX, I had to roll up my sleeves and get cooking. We had spent all of our money on a wonderful week! Luckily, I love to cook (and we lack many decent places to eat here), so this was not a problem for me.
