angiepants [one pocket at a time]

Hi, I'm a 24 year old Long Island raised lady who became a grown adult in Philly (aka: 7 years for undergrad and grad schooling), home of squished pretzels and 'brotherly' love. I've traveled over the northeast coast and even once to the Midwest for clinical rotations. I've just moved back to the Long Island suburbs to work a little (aka: pay off student loans...) while also studying for my Physical Therapy licensure exam/boards this winter.

I'm known to geek over anything anatomy or adaptive sports. You’ll find me stopping to pick flowers for my hair, living waist deep in my studies or spending the weekend cooking up a storm.

I'm an Aries and ENFJ by nature.

My favorites are fruit, artsy things, wearing aprons and sprawling down on the ground instead of actual chairs. This is my place of inspirations, thoughts, and daily occurrences. Enjoy.

Coconut Banana Ice Cream Bars (dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free)

The other morning I slept in and came downstairs to see my oldest daughter, Lily, put a pan of something into the freezer. I asked her what she made and she responded: “frozen coconut banana cream bars.” We all enjoyed them as a treat throughout the day. Then later I saw her on the computer (which rarely ever happens) and asked her what she was doing. “Oh, I’m just typing up a recipe for a blog post” she responded. So what you see written below, including all of the photos, is by my 11-year daughter.

Again, when I’m home and have a blender back in my hands - these will happen too!

Banana Pumpkin Breakfast Shake
When you have to slide your finger over the emptied container in fear of wasting any last drop of a mix, you know it’s good.  This one is a great morning comfort.

Peanut Butter Banana Basil Swiss Chard Wrap
At first this seems like an odd combo - but it is surprisingly really good and the simple flavors all complement each other.

The Dish on this weekend

  • Strawberry Banana Spinach Smoothie: Okay, the color?  Not so lovely.  The taste and texture?  Perfect
  • Honey’s Spicy Honey Wings: Wooooooooh baby.  The sauce on these suckers will  leave your  lips spiced up.  Water, blue cheese, celery, whatever, is definitely recommended (BTW: When prepping chicken wings I find it kind of funny how moving the ‘joint’ around helps me orient the structures and cut right on target)
  • Apricot Pistachio Granola: Another staple.  This time I substituted with dried papaya and currants!
  • Grilled Vegetable with Roasted-Chile Butter: So many ‘elite’ recipe books call for fancy, expensive vegetables.  Regular eggplants will taste just as good as baby or Japanese eggplants when they are jazzed up in a great sauce, thank you.
  • Lemon-aide Smoothie: Because I need to finish up spinach (which goes bad disgustingly fast) and simple syrup.

The Dish on this Weekend

Saturday

  • French Onion Soup Sandwiches: Because all is good in the world when you have brown grilled onions smothered with melted gruyere without need of spoon or fork.  MY GOD YES.
  • Fennel Garlic Chicken Legs: I’ve kind of on a crazy chicken buying streak.  Last week was 1 whole chicken and 18 chicken wings, in the past I’ve done a lot with chicken thighs.  Now whole chicken legs?   Grocery workers give me the crazy eye sometimes.
  • Everyday Granola:  Stocking up on the necessaries!

Banana Icecream
Chop up a banana and freeze it overnight Put it in the food processor and blend until smooth!  It’s BETTER than icecream.
Also you can add whatever you want- berries, peanut butter, dates, sultanas, choc bits!

Make you they are pretty brownly ripened!  I recommend this with nutella.  Just sayin’

First Banana, then Banana Nutella, of course I need to have a trifecta of ice cream and now make the Banana Peanut Butter.
