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.
My fingers are currently BURNING after chopping up serrano and chilli peppers. YOWZA.
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.
AKA: I need to stop making more recipe foods and finish up the things I have left in my fridge and freezer. But that is so hard when I always want to make new things!
Lemon Chicken with Pistachios: This I made my a group of student/co-workers/friends once. It is SO GOOD. When I make a recipe multiple times, it has to be good. Recipe from Gluten Free Girl Everyday cookbook.
Cumin-Dijon Chickpea Salad: Last minute make for a get together. It is a colorful and flavorful side. Recipe here
