Homemade Pizza (kinda)

So it's been a while since I've posted. Just been busy at school and haven't had much time/energy. Last week was April break and you'd think I'd be able to chill then but nope. Got my wisdom teeth pulled. How pleasant. Anyways, jokes aside, April break was still a blast for me since I cooked … Continue reading Homemade Pizza (kinda)

Grilled Halloumi with Walnut Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Candied Walnuts

Sweet potatoes are love. Let me tell you, I would eat sweet potatoes all day. They're legit just potatoes that got a sugar high. However, I don't really enjoy my sweet taters in sweet dishes. I don't know, it's just my preference. So one day while I was trying to do my homework AKA paint … Continue reading Grilled Halloumi with Walnut Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Candied Walnuts

Healthy Baked Ziti with Cauliflower

Now I love my baked pasta. It's cheesy and tasty but normally so calorific that if I made it I, a bulking teen, would end the day way over my calorie goals. It also is so void of nutrients. I mean, white pasta, processed tomato sauce, and cheese. So many nutrients, amirite? That's why I … Continue reading Healthy Baked Ziti with Cauliflower

How to Make a Low Calorie Delicious Cheese Sauce

So cheese sauces are great. I use them all the time for cheesy bakes, for making veggies more palatable (curse you bell peppers), and just to eat with a spoon. However, these sauces normally require metric tons of butter and flour and guys, that is not necessary. You really only need a few ingredients and … Continue reading How to Make a Low Calorie Delicious Cheese Sauce

Culture Week: Spanish Quiche with Chickpeas

So last week in our school was culture week. We basically spent the week celebrating other cultures and ended the week with a big feast. As language students, we were required to being in something and I decided to bring a quiche. The inspiration for this dish came in Spain. My mom ordered a chickpea … Continue reading Culture Week: Spanish Quiche with Chickpeas

Grilled Halloumi on a Zucchini Corn Mexican Salad

Halloumi cheese. That simple sentence makes my mouth water. Well technically it's not a sentence but ya know, I English well enough. Anyways, if you haven't heard of Halloumi, it is a Greek cheese that has a high melting point, allowing you to grill it like meat. Basically, it can survive more torture. Now as … Continue reading Grilled Halloumi on a Zucchini Corn Mexican Salad

Gruyere Saladwith a Baked Potato

Gruyere is love, Gruyere is life. Seriously, I love Gruyere cheese. So. Much. So if you haven't had Gruyere cheese, it basically tastes like a cross between Swiss and Parmesan. Now, Gruyere is great when grated for melting and for making cheese sauces but at the store one day I accidentally picked up smoked Gruyere … Continue reading Gruyere Saladwith a Baked Potato

PSA: Use Spices When Cooking

So I'm an extremely conservative seasoner. At least I was. I always used to just stick with salt and pepper and ignored the vast array of spices I had sitting right next to me. However, I've recently begun to add spices and oh man are they game changers or what. Spices allow you to add … Continue reading PSA: Use Spices When Cooking

I Scream for Ice Cream

We all scream for ice cream. I mean, ice cream is like universally thought of as happiness. However, normally made with cream and sugar, it isn't the healthiest thing ever. Too bad, if it was I'd be able to down ice cream all day instead of kale. Anywhere you go around the world, ice cream … Continue reading I Scream for Ice Cream

Green Lentil Pasta with Broccoli

I wish I were Italian. Then I would, for one, have an awesome Italian accent and, two, get to eat pasta all day. Now sadly, I'm not Italian but I do have access to pasta. Well, crappy grocery store pasta but hey, it counts! However, since I actually started reading the labels on products, I … Continue reading Green Lentil Pasta with Broccoli
