Beef Stew (Cooking With Cats)



Cats are delicious when stewed, but should be left to professionals.

Mustard Green and Tofu Soup

This is my favorite side soup dish of all time! OF ALL TIME! I seem to have a lot of favorite dishes of all time, but that just means there are a lot of things that I enjoy. Not only is this soup fabulous, it's also very simple to make. Let's start, shall we?

Guacamole



HEYYYYYYYYYYYO. So I went back to my mom's house a couple of weekends ago, and she was so excited to show me her guacamole! I thought it was really cute, so I'll show you her recipe!

Basil & Parsley Pesto



So I was over at Simply Recipes and saw Elise's friend (Hank's) post on a ramp pesto. Since I had nothing better to do (and the fact that it looked delicious), I decided to make it. Sadly, I couldn't find any ramps! So I just ended up making a simple pesto. Also, if you would notice, I went over to my mom's house, and OMG! She has a food processor! :D

Vietnamese pork chops

Everyone should thank my mom for showing me how to make this awesome caramel-y pork chops. Not to boast about my mom or anything, but seriously, dude, they are my favorite pork chops in the world!

Butternut Squash Soup

I love squashes! Yes, I do. My favorite was the Vietnamese squash soup when I was little. For some reasons, there hasn't been anymore squash soups lately. So I'm off to try and make some sort of squash soup for myself. Butternut squash was on sale and cheap, so what am I do to?

Banana Pancakes



MMMM! BANANAS! So this is what I usually make for a weekend breakfast. They're super easy and delicious! You're probably (not) thinking why I don't just get pancake mix from a box, and that's because I ran out, and I have been far too lazy and forgetful to go to the store and get another box... for the last two years.

Chili Paneer

IMG_2538

Once again, Nur has decided to grace us with her awesome cooking skills. Enjoy!

I love Indian food, so I always I tell myself that one of these days I should try making Indian dishes from scratch. I ended up making chili paneer because I once watched my counterpart's mom make it last year. It's a stir fry with of paneer, chili, and bell peppers. She made this delicious recipe look so easy to make!

I don't have a copy of her recipe, but I was able to make up a recipe based on my online research. (Just as a warning, I didn't use exact recipe measurements because I'm so horribly lazy at measuring.) Now onward we go!

Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori chicken 2

I have a problem. Whenever someone talks about a certain food with passion, I immediately have a craving for that food. Whenever I read a recipe, I also have a craving to eat the product right away.

The other day, I was reading David Lebovitz's Tandoori Chicken post on his blog and I said: Gosh darn it! I'm going to make me some Tandoori chicken.

Honey Walnut Prawns



I was talking to The Chopping Block the other day, and somehow she challenged me to make Honey Walnut Prawns. So I am seeing her challenge! ... But note that I also tagged this as a "misadventure."
