Red Beans and Rice

This dish was part of a meal that was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Southern”. I am just going to start that this makes a lot but I am 100% ok with that. I plan to eat this for days because of how good it is. It might look like a pain due to the waiting and simmering time but I barely noticed it.

Canned Black Bean Replacement

A while back I decided to try to make foods that I normally eat and improve on them. Black beans were the first thing I tried and the difference is amazing. I cook with black beans a lot so I used to just cook them in water and freeze the rest but the flavour on this is much better. You can either make enough for a meal or make large batch and freeze the rest.

Black and White Pizza (Black Bean and Olive)

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Black and White”. At first I found this theme really interesting until I realised that I could not think of black and white food other than desserts. There are definitely foods that are black and foods that are white but it is hard to foods that have the two contrasts.

Spicy Mexican Minestrone Stew

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.

Choco-BBQ Chili

This dish was the completed part of a dish created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Bottled Sauces from Scratch” and my second theme was “Comfort Food”. While the homemade BBQ sauce satisfied the first theme, this completed dish definitely was comfort food. There are not many foods that I consider more comfort food as Chili especially on a cool night. Continue reading “Choco-BBQ Chili”

Chili Rice

This dish was prepare for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Outdoorsman” and my second theme was “Rice”. My friend group and I go camping a lot during the summer but I do not think we have ever cooked rice while camping, usually just steaks, hot dogs, and burgers. Since it is still a little too cold to go camping, I cooked this in my kitchen but have modified the recipe.

Kangaroo & Pork Chili Frito Pie

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “junk food”. I was really unsure what to make for this I try not to eat junk food all that often. Plus, I wanted to make something that after eating it, did not make me feel like I was killing myself. While Chili probably is not the healthiest food, it has been raining pretty hard at my house and flooding so I wanted to sit and eat some comfort movie and watch shitty b movies.
