Veggies and fried tofu

We’ve signed up for a local CSA (community supported agriculture) and now get a giant pile of vegetables every week. It’s great because not only does it support the local community but it forces us to eat more vegetables. That said, we’ve had to get creative figuring out how find time to use all these […]

It Came From the Internet: Recipes

Things have been really busy around here, but sadly not with stuff that makes for interesting blog posts. In the meantime, here are some of the recipes I’ve been compulsively hoarding, holding out for the day when I actually have time to do some cooking / baking. For the fantasy world in which I hold […]

Cinnamon Rolls of Doom

We make these when we’re afraid we’re not getting enough fat and sugar in our diets. Or when we want to make doubly sure we’re well on our way to type 2 diabetes. My mother found this cinnamon bun recipe a few years ago, which uses nearly 3 cups of butter and 5.5 cups of […]

Muffin Tin Pancakes

My Pinterest stream is mostly home decor and food. When I saw the photo for these mini german pancakes, I knew they had to be mine. I skipped the orange zest, for lack of an orange, but otherwise made the recipe as written. I used a nonstick muffin pan, but greased it anyway for maximum […]

Haphazard Pulled Pork of Deliciousness

Yesterday I made pulled pork in our crock pot. Since it was pouring outside, I wasn’t willing to walk to the big grocery store. As such, any ingredients I needed had to be available at our local corner store (minus the pork itself, which had been hanging out in our freezer for months). It was […]

Back to Bento

Now that I’m working full-time at an awesome startup downtown I’ve been packing bento lunches again. In addition to being better for me, it’s substantially cheaper than buying lunch in midtown. A wrap or salad at the “usual” place ends up being about $9. Even considering the fact that Chris works from home a few […]

Bento is Back! Bento #11

It's been a while without bento. The main reason is that for the past two weeks, Chris has been working at home; no bento required. We've also both been running around like crazy. I still need to re-stock on bento supplies, but managed to make do with what was in the fridge this morning. Today […]

Bento #9: Cheese and Crackers!

I’ve been slacking on the bento photos a bit. It’s been a hectic week and while very few of my bentos take more than 10 minutes, staying organized and waking up more than 30 minutes before I’m supposed to leave has been a bit of a challenge.  I’ve also skipped photographing bentos which were just more […]
