California Burrito

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.

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.

Chicken Tikka Masala Ravioli

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “screw ups”. Well I still do not own a pasta maker or ravioli stamp so I attempted to make it using just a rolling pin. I think I finally got it! The trick is to make sure you cover everything in your house in flour! That being said, these were absolutely delicious. I would make these any day and honestly, were not too hard. Plus, I made enough to freeze that I do not have to make it that often.

Next time, I definitely will make it a bit more spicy though. I ended up running out of Flour so I substituted whole wheat flour and it turned out fine. Also, you can make the Chicken Tikka, Paneer, Cilantro Mint Chutney, Ginger Garlic Paste, and Curry Powder before time.

This drink was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “whole spices”. I have been making a version of this for years and it was one of my favourite things to drink when I was visiting Germany but I decided to make it a little bit different based on some searching on the internets. This is really good but it does sneak up on you alcohol wise because of how easy it is to drink. It is great for cold fall and winter nights.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

This was the second part of a meal prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “mushrooms”. Like I said in the first part of this meal, it was fairly difficult to find a dish where the main ingredient was a mushroom. Even though this is a mushroom soup, I feel that most of the flavour is derived from a lot of the other ingredients which I was totally fine with because it was delicious.

Satay Ayum

This dish was the first part of a meal prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Indonesian”. Before this weeks theme I have never even thought of Indonesian food. I have been living under a rock! This was delicious. Plus how can you go wrong with peanut sauce. It seems like everything these days come with peanut sauce and I am completely ok with this. Plus with how easy this was, I would definitely make this again or at least try with a different meat.
