Hello out there! I know it's been a hot minute since I've posted.
Work, school, et cetera have been keeping me very busy lately! The usual suspects, right?
In case you were worried that I haven't been cooking up a storm lately- don't fret, I have!
I've made flourless peanut butter cookies:
There are so many recipes for flourless cookies online. I looked at a few, and made my own recipe using crunchy Skippy PB, stevia baking blend, brown sugar, and an egg.
More sweet tooth goodies- tie-dyed cupcakes!
To round it out with some savory meals...
I recently made burritos with beans, pico de gallo, Raine's homemade super spicy salsa, cheese, lettuce, and a secret ingredient- French Fries!
Several years ago I went to El Paso with friends for a Texas Tech v. UTEP football game. We ate at a local burrito place and they put french fries in their burritos and it was delicious! This hit the spot.
I also recently made some summery gazpacho, using an Alton Brown recipe from Food Network.
Served with some crusty bread, it was perfect for the hot weather. The only change I made to Alton's recipe was to cut the olive oil in half, as the commenters suggested, and to omit the Worcestershire.
I've also been working on transferring my blog to WordPress and self-hosting! It is kind of a mess right now, but I'm hoping a new site will be up within a few weeks.
Until then, I have a (self-imposed) thesis deadline to meet- so I may be absent for a little while longer before I'm back full force.
I made an inspiration board to get me going!
