This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Olympics”. I love this theme because I am kind of in love with Olypmics, summer or winter, do not care, love it. Since the Olympics this year will be in South Korea, I decided to use that as an excuse to make Korean food. Plus, who doesn’t love burritos? … I might have just done it to use up some tortillas I had… Either way, this was really good and I was able to use some ingredients I never have before win and win.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Tailgate”. I used to go to tailgates all of the time until they got banned in my city for a few reasons. That being said, it has not stopped me from enjoying some delicious tailgating food.
It is really hard to screw up a meatball sub. Make meat balls add stuff. These were no different but I do have to say that they were much better after sitting in the sauce all night and the pictures were a bit better. Wish I took pictures before devouring it again.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “California Cuisine”. I grew up in California so when I saw this theme, I got a little nostalgic. Just the other week I was talking about how much I miss California burritos. I mean beans and rice are good and all but some times I want fries in my burrito. This definitely cured my craving for one and I am glad that I have enough to make a few more.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Dorm Food”. I never stayed in a dorm but I did eat cheaply during college. The one dish that stood out was top ramen with an egg. I decided to recreate this but with a dish that I actually want to eat and I love ramen.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Italian”. Since I cook Italian food all of the time, I decided to change things up and try kind of a Mexican-Italian fusion meal. Well, it turned out really good and there are only a few things that I would change.
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Made Healthy.” I have always loved Shepherd’s Pie because it is an amazing comfort food but like most comfort foods, not the healthiest. In order to make this healthy, I decided to go with a vegetarian option and not use butter in the my mashed potatoes (the recipe says butter because I plan to make this again). I am really glad that I decided to go with a lot of spices in this because mashed potatoes without butter did not taste quite right. Other than that, this was absolutely delicious and I have been eating it all week.
This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “rice”. Obviously, you can see no rice in the faijitas but I will probably make another post for those. I have made fajitas in the passed but never asian marinated and I can honestly say that this will be my new go to whenever I want to make Fajitas. The difference in flavour is not huge but it is very subtle and very welcomed without too overbearing. I think next time, I might add a different spice or sauce to go with it. Also, I would go with fresh ginger next time for more ginger flavour.
