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.

No Bake Polenta Trail Mix Bars
The amount of things one can do with polenta never seizes to amaze me.  A square of polenta packed with many things serves a powerful mid-day snack (or breakfast bar)

Orange Maple Polenta
If you’re tired of oats or hot ‘quinoa’ cereal, a warm orange infused polenta bowl works for a filling breakfast too.

The Dish on this Past Week

I basically like cooking because I can lick the spoon and/or pot after each one is finished…

Zesty Braised Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Capers: Sauvignon Blanc adds zip to the lemon-and-caper infused liquid”.  Of course I have cooking white wine stocked up in my fridge - luckily it was Sauvignon Blanc this time around.  Recipe here.

One Pot Vegan Pasta: The name is simple but the dish is simple and good.  I used a gluten free fusilli brown rice pasta and extra mushrooms.  Use any veggies, pasta or herb toppings to your liking.  Recipe here.

Pumpkin Protein Buckwheat Bake x 2:  Because I still had lots of canned pumpkin leftover from last week.

Orange Maple Polenta Porridge:  If you want to make a slight change from hot oats or quinoa, polenta is a good pal to have in the morning too!  Recipe here.

What was left in my kitchen: Chicken breast simmered in a tomato sauce with onion, spinach and sliced mushrooms.

The Dish on this past Week

So we had a ‘fifth’ person finally move back into our shared house.  However, I couldn’t surrender any of my fridge space (1 shelf, 1 drawer, and a select few spots on the door side shelves).  Sorry ladies & gents, for someone who cooks 95% of what they eat, I do need that space for food! 

Well, if I think of it - I’m actually not sorry.  That’s just the way it is.

  • Escarole &Roasted Broccoli Salad with Anchovy Dressing: Don’t be scared by the little fish from the can.  This was seriously a perfect combo of sweet roasted broccoli, salty anchovy and bitter cheese all with fresh escarole.  Plus, anchovies are packed with protein - more so than tuna or salmon.  Hey muscle food!  Recipe here.
  • Yellow Wax Bean & Radish Salad with Cannelinnis: I had string beans and white beans.  Get the rest and get toss ‘em all together - happy vegetarian/vegan main meal!  Recipe here.
  • Bacon Quinoa with Almonds and Herbs:  This is written up as a ‘sturdy side’, but for me it works as one hell of a hearty main dish.  Recipe here.
  • Eggplant Involitini with Grilled Ratatouille: I get emailed recipes from Food&Wine magainze 5x a week.  Ideas like these strike me as wonderful and they happen the following weekend :)  Recipe here.
  • White Bean, Pepper Potato Burgers with Rosemary & Basil: I still had lots of white beans - so this happened.  They were such a beautiful pop of colors to watch mix together in a bowl.  Hello vegetarian/vegan meal 2 :)  Recipe here.
  • Overnight Buckwheat Cashew Parfait: Substituting is great.  I didn’t have raspberries and a pear, so I rendered down some cherries and apple.  Happy breakfast!  Recipe here.
  • Buckwheat Bake - Cherry Cocoa with Protein Powder: x 2, so I am set for the week.

The Dish on this past week

  • Buckwheat Bake - Cherry Almond: I can’t wait to scarf this one down for breakfast tomorrow.  Recipe here.
  • Buckwheat Bake - French Toast:  Double the eggs = double the fluffy-ness!  Recipe here
  • Rosemary Infused Olive OIl:  Because I still have so much Rosemary left.  Recipe here.
  • What was left in my fridge Take 1: Ground Turkey, tomato sauce, onions cooked down with garlic/oregano/basil/red pepper flakes and sliced green onions
  • What was left in my fridge Take 2: Chicken simmered down with carrots, red onion, red wine vinegar, pepper/salt and fresh rosemary

Chipotle Tomato with Brown Rice Egg Skillet
I added ~1/2 cup extra of brown rice and tomatoes to really make this a worthy of a heaping two servings of a dish.

The Dish on the Past Week

  • A Whole Damn Roasted Cauliflower:  The presentation on this is amazing.  The extra sauce I had left afterwards went on so many of my vegetables over the last few days…  Recipe here.
  • Pizza Popcorn:  For the noms.  Recipe here
  • Banana Nut Hot ‘Quinoa’ Cereal:  2 cups almond milk, dash of salt, 1 cup quinoa and simmer 15 minutes.  Add in 2 sliced bananas and 1/2 cup your choice of nuts or seeds annnnnd voila!  I used sunflower seeds and cinnamon for mine this time around. 
  • Spicy Rainbow Rice & Bean Salad:  So colorful!  I used jasmine rice instead of the basmati - but hey, it all works.  Recipe here.
  • Three-Grain Grilled Vegetable and Feta Salad:  Three protein packed grains all in a one pot dish?  YES.  Add in grilled vegetables and feta?  This is the best bowl ever.  Recipe here.
  • Roasted Chickpeas, Honey and Cinnamon: A took of picture of them in the mason jar they’re currently in (that won’t exist for long…) - but it didn’t do them justice.  They are a delicious, dainty snack.  Recipe here.

The Dish on this past week

Buckwheat Tabouleh:  The idea was intriguing - but I kind of over simmered my buckwheat so it was just overall too mushy.  Word to the wise - simmer but don’t let you buckwheat lose its bite!  Recipe here.

Greek Salad Dressing: For a topping over a salad of basically everything I had left in my fridge (spinach, kale, chickpeas, black beans and mixed white/red quinoa)  Recipe here.

Lentil & Buckwheat Salad:  The recipe calls for the raw buckwheat groats to be mixed with an egg, then cooked in a skillet.  It made them cooked and crunchy - something I’ve never had and really enjoyed!  I decided to decrease the time they simmered in the broth (discarding the extra) so they stayed that nice, crisp texture :)  Recipe here.

Millet with Apricot Breakfast Cereal:  It is good to change up my regular breakfast meal of cereal and granola at least once a week.  I almost always then go for a hot cereal choice!  Recipe here.

Everyday Granola: Always.

Greek Cucumber and Feta Salad:  Words cannot explain how wonderful and refreshing this is on a hot summer afternoon.  Recipe here.

Roasted Chickpeas, Garlic Parmesan: These suckers are crunch and savory.  I’ve realized I probably will need to ‘snack’ more when I’m working.  I tend to hit a ‘low’ or sometimes almost crash about 2-3 pm.  I plan to do many different kinds of these so I can carry them around in my scrub pants’ pockets (in a ziploc baggie, of course!).  Recipe here.

Ginger Tom Collins:  Made these for a thursday evening with ginger syrup I 'happened' to have left over from when I made candied ginger. Isn't the life of cooking just a never ending continuum of fun?  Recipe here,

Sourdough Bread (Gluten Free): This took a few days of ‘prep work’ (honestly, just mixing the starter once in the morning) but my anticipation grew just as much as the dough did.  The rest was very easy and very satisfying.  Gluten free girl makes bread?  YES.  There is something nice about just having a simple option of bread around the house again :)  Recipe here.
