Good Eats: The Middle Ages

Despite our modern differences with Medieval cookery, that does not make their preferred foods of lesser taste and quality—ideal Medieval dishes are just as rich and flavorful in their own unique way.

What I’ve Made With My Comically Small Tomatoes

Chicken, tomato, and spinach quinoa I used frozen quinoa, olive oil, my Tyson’s shredded frozen chicken (that I’m obsessed with), spinach, and sliced tomatoes. I sautéed the tomatoes first in a large pan with minced garlic and minced onion, and then tossed everything else in. I love this meal because it doesn’t take long to…

My Kitchen Lifesaver for Quick, Tasty Meals

(15 minute chicken noodle soup recipe at the bottom) I’d like to let y’all in on a little cooking secret of mine. Sometimes I don’t feel like making my own chicken. Honestly, it’s boring–and it takes a while. All the fun is in making the rest of the dish, not the chicken. Sometimes I don’t…

Balcony and Tomatoes Update

  My balcony looks a little different from the last time I posted about it… mostly because my tomato plant is almost 6ft tall and 4ft wide! Additionally, I had to move a few plants around, and remove some. There was a magnificently awful storm a few weeks ago that destroyed my impatiens and mandevillas,…

Everything but the Kitchen Sink Salad

I’ve been on a real salad kick lately and wanted to share this beautiful lunch I had recently. In my opinion, the darker the greens and the more colorful the salad, the better it is. Ingredients: Spinach and arugula Shredded cabbage Chopped carrots Diced boiled egg Shredded chicken Chopped red onions Sliced strawberries Sliced cucumber…

My Chicken Salad

Another rainy day calls for me watching Gilmore Girls on the balcony while eating chicken salad! I like to buy the pack of two raw chicken breasts at the grocery store and I’ll cook them both and freeze the second. This chicken is the frozen second breast! I make my chicken salad a little differently…

Makeshift Pico de Gallo Pizza

Last night I made tacos for my friends so I had a bit of leftovers that I didn’t want to go to waste. For lunch today, I particularly wanted to include the pico de gallo I made, because it was to die for–and only 4 ingredients to boot! The pico was just half an onion,…

Decorating My College Apartment Balcony

I’m currently sitting on my balcony soaking it all in… I’ve finally finished decorating my balcony! It only took about eleven months after moving in. It’s been really nice to have this little, relaxing space to turn to. This is where I go to read, work on my laptop, eat lunch, play Sims, and get…

Turns Out Homemade Pasta Sauce is Incredibly Easy and Delicious

If I had known I could make this dish in ten minutes, it would have been a staple dish during busy nights during the school year. It made for great leftovers too. I’ve made this sauce twice so far, once with penne and once with angel hair, and I’ve decided angel hair is my favorite…
