Baking: Spinach Quiche

It’s been a while since I’ve baked – or really made anything in the kitchen. I’ve just been crazy busy at work – travelling and such and the holiday so I’ve taken a break. Now it’s busy season so I’ve just been working pretty much all the time. I do TRY and get some relaxing time in and this weekend was perfect to do so. I finally go my life back in order a bit.  Continue reading “Baking: Spinach Quiche”

I love my best friend. She is an amazing person who is out on the East Coast herself for medical school. Typically we email each other since sometimes we don’t want the pressures of texting and having to text back all the time. We both grew up in Southern California so we love our avocados. She wanted something with avocado and I wanted make something for her birthday (which is close to Thanksgiving). Brownies were the perfect choice!  Continue reading “Baking: Avocado Brownie”

I’ve really tried to push myself to make one thing a week from the Alton Brown EveryDayCook book. If you know me well, I don’t actually have all that much alcohol. Well maybe wine (like Moscato), but never really anything else. Since I was hanging out with a friend for most of the weekend, we decided to try and make this since he has a nice alcohol selection.  Continue reading “Baking: Bourbon Bread Pudding “

When I start lists, especially cooking or eating related, I get obsessive – I really try and finish things I start. Since I decided to start on this cookbook (EveryDayCook), I wanted to try and do a recipe a week so with a 100 or so recipes, I can get through this cookbook in 2 years (or so). There’s some really great recipes on the list – this is definitely one of them. Something that’s a great dish on a weekday night – easy with ingredients that should be in my apartment (which aren’t always).  Continue reading “Cooking: Chicken Piccata”

Baking: Blueberry Pound Cake

Choosing a book to cook every single recipe out of has been difficult, but I love Alton Brown so I decided on his newest cookbook – EveryDayCook. It just has so many different items in it – baking, cooking, and some alcoholic drinks as well.  I’m hoping this will force me to cook more often and be able to document it as well here.  Continue reading “Baking: Blueberry Pound Cake”
