Bodega Sandwich with Artichoke Salad

This the world’s easiest and fastest dinner, and it is super simple, but so tasty! This recipe was adapted from Anthony Bourdain’s Appetites cookbook.

Beef Sukiyaki

I fell in love with this dish at a Japanese restaurant way back in college, and I love making it at home because its fairly quick and easy but also super satisfying and filling.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (with a twist)

I love the taste of an oatmeal cookie (I prefer chocolate to raisins by far), but don’t completely love the texture of oatmeal cookies so I was excited to see this recipe from Mel’s Kitchen that is a bit different than your typical oatmeal cookie recipe. The oats are blended into a powder in theContinue reading “Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (with a twist)”

This is a quicker and cheaper version of beef stroganoff that I make when I’m feeling too lazy to deal with properly cooking steak, or want to spend less money on the meal.

Mapo Chicken with Rice and Quick Kimchi Cucumbers

This dish is inspired by the delicious Mapo Tofu, but uses boneless chicken breast pieces instead. It is savory and spicy, in the tongue tingling way that only Sichuan peppercorns produce. It should be served on white rice, and adding a pickled component on the side really rounds out the flavors. You can find theContinue reading “Mapo Chicken with Rice and Quick Kimchi Cucumbers”
