When you have the time, taking the moment to make ramen from scratch is truly something beautiful. Much better than the store-bought variety that’s 1 dollar a pop. This recipe is a modified version from Half Baked Harvest, using beef instead of pork and acorn squash, but it is just as good and heart-warming (or artery-clogging, take your pick). I also want to take the time to apologize for being MIA due to NaNoWriMo and having extra work for both my internships.
Two gluten-free heads working together is better than one. Especially when it comes to reinventing comfort food. Did I reinventing? I meant trying our hardest not to cry when trying to enjoy traditional comfort food. Is there any food more comforting than pizza? (Hint: there isn’t).
Anyone who knows me know that I value making comfort food that works for you. Some people are comforted by health food. I like to take a break from health food and bust out the bacon, spaghetti, clams, and–wait, what?
I was away for a week or so, apologies for the lack of posts. After my root canal, I had to eat a liquid diet. But then I had to start getting some nutrients, so my boyfriend had this great idea to go to Polish town of Greenpoint, New York. We went to a rustic joint called Karczma and you’ve never eaten a Polish grill plate like we have.
As you, dear readers, know, I went to Brazil over the summer and while it was winter there, it was a much more pleasant wintery experience than the single-digit temperatures Fahrenheit (well into negative teens and 20’s Celsius) we have in upstate New York. Therefore, to bring back some of the warmth of South America, I decided to attempt a feijoada, a hearty Brazilian meat stew. Due to my fridge being overrun with vegetables, I had to ad-hoc some of the meat portions, which gave me a good excuse to go outside and take some beautiful pictures of ice. As you have probably noticed, I have been out of the blogging loop for quite some time. More on that later.
Happy New Year, everyone! I finally have moments to breathe because I am on break and this hellish semester is over. Literally, if you can avoid taking 6 hard-science courses at once, please do. So, I find myself relaxing a lot these days. After an exciting Christmas and an eventful New Year’s Eve, some rest and relaxation is in order. So, I find myself spending time in PJ’s trying new snacks. I want to tell you about some delicious new cookies I tried and one of my new favorite Christmas gifts.
Pizza is wonderful. It’s warm, it’s chewy, it has tomatoes, it has cheese, and it’s the ultimate comfort food. It is the staple of New York kind who want something filling to eat but won’t break the 2-dollar bank, i.e. the complete dinner of 99-cent Arizona iced tea and 99-cent pizza from 2 Bros Pizza. Yet whenever I want the cheesy deliciousness delivered or I go out anywhere, 9.9 times out of 10, I can’t eat it…
