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.

Super Power Chia ‘Bread’
Next time I will be sure to make these is a bigger pan so they are thinner slices - but these things are BURSTING with chia seeds.
They are nut free, gluten free, soy free and vegan. Perfect pre/post workouts or for traveling.
Recipe here.

The Dish on this Past Week

I made a trifecta of a dinner yesterday for a friend - who might potentially be more than a friend.  But hey, how can one not attract a guy if you put a rocking meal together?

  • Flat Roasted Chicken:  I treated myself to a nice pair of kitchen shears just so I could cut the backbone off the chicken.  It was so unbelievably good.  It falls right off the bone.  Recipe here.
  • Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms:  Such a good combo of flavors - it was a perfect end of summer, start of fall dish.  Recipe here.
  • Potato & Celery Root Smash: A classic staple I will always make.  Recipe from the book Lunchtime in Paris.

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.

Eggplant Involitini with Grilled Ratatouille
Made ‘vegan’ by using cashew with nutritional yeast to substitute for the ricotta.  It has a savory, almost cheese like flavor to it.  
Yum.

White Bean and Potato Burgers with Pepper, 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 :)

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.
