Do you ever get those random hunger pangs for something so oddly specific that you don't know if you even really like that thing at all? I do. Almost everyday. That weird craving struck me over the weekend. My most desired object? Edamame. I don't regularly eat it. I don't even really like it that… Continue reading Sesame Noodle Bowls
Sometimes, I get so in the mood when I'm cooking, I forget to put ingredients into a dish. Thankfully it's never happened with something essential to a recipe, like baking soda in a cake or eggs in a meatloaf...but I do have this tendency to leave out benign ingredients like garnishes or herbs.

Despite the… Continue reading Chicken Teriyaki Zoodles
I think I've gotten a contact high from some paint job Rob was working on. Wooh. Not nearly enough ventilation in this apartment, that's for sure. I also made matters worse by busting out the grill pan and grilling up some bratwurst for lunch. The grill pan and brats produced a lot of smoke; I… Continue reading Thai Almond Zoodle Bowl
