I have wanted to make a gratin for a while. First of all, gratin [gra-teh(n)] sounds super fancy, so if you tell someone you are making them a gratin, they will immediately think you are an amazing cook. Secondly, what is not to love about a gratin… cheesy goodness with a crisp breaded top… amazing!
Unfortunately, every time I ran across a recipe for one (or even worse, a scrumptious-looking picture), I would think, Ooo, that looks soo good, but Adam would definitely despise this. Cooking without cheese really limits what is available to make. But why am I complaining, I cause even more problems being a vegetarian! Continue reading
I’ve decided to join in on Fiesta Friday! For more information about it, check out The Novice Gardner. I discovered Fiesta Friday through one of this week’s host Butter, Basil, and Breadcrumbs – she posted this amazing-looking Molten Lava Cake, and I couldn’t resist checking it out! To celebrate Friday, spring time, and asparagus, my contribution to the Fiesta is Broccoli and Asparagus Soup.
I have been on an extremely almost-obsessive asparagus kick for the last month! Hey, if they’re only in season for a few months, why not take advantage of it? I currently have 3 pounds of asparagus in the fridge, but some of it is for others too…
I love quinoa! It’s so filling and there are so many things you can do with it. As a vegetarian, you eat a lot of grains, and it is very easy to get sick of pasta and rice all the time. Quinoa is a great way to mix things up! Plus quinoa is a superfood – it is very high in protein, it is actually a complete protein and is high in fiber, iron, and magnesium. Continue reading
I love to find simple ways to cook my food separate from Adam’s. You know, make sure all of the delicious vegetable are untainted by meat. 🙂 Making individual portions of the pot pie was the perfect way to do that!
When I was thinking of what to call this, I was inspired by Pizza Hut’s Personal Pan Pizzas. I used to do Book-It in elementary school, so each month my family would go to Pizza Hut for dinner, and I would get a free personal pan pizza because I got enough stickers from the books I read. Anyway… In honor of two separate pot pies, I introduce to you the Personal Pot Pie. Continue reading
Believe it or not, there have been several times I wish I ate meat. Almost every time I am cooking a new meat recipe for Adam, whenever he is trying it – that’s about it – those are the times I want to eat meat. It’s hard to feel like I’m not missing out on those sauces, marinades, and spices that season the meat. Well not this time! I found this delicious recipe for Baked Chicken Stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto, Basil, and Goat Cheese at Kayln’s Kitchen, and I was determined to find a way to try it too!
