This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “On Sale”. This was a rough one because I like to plan ahead and usually I only buy stuff on sale when I walk through the store. Then my friend texted me and said that the store near her house had a sale on whole rabbit and since I have never cooked rabbit before so I jumped on this.
I have had rabbit at restaurants before so I knew I liked it but this stew combined with the gravy was absolutely phenomenal. Though, I did find out that I hated cutting up the rabbit but I do not like quartering chickens either.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Poaching”. Honestly, I have no idea what it means to poach anything other than an egg. It does not mean that I have not done it, I just did not know that it was the name of a process. That being said, this turned out to be one of my top 10 dishes I have ever made. I cannot remember the other 9 because I have not been keeping track but this is definitely up there. Plus, how could it not be? Shrimp is good, grits are good. Boom!

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Inspired by Music”. For the theme I definitely was inspired by the song Peaches by The Presidents of the United States of America or the band, Peaches, but either way Peaches. I have never really been a fan of pork chops. I have had them when they were just alright and times where they were down right terrible. This was not the case, these were delicious. I do not think I will go back to cooking pork chops any other way. You just have to be careful taking them out of your slow cooker.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Avocado”. Avocados are one of my favourite fruits and I have made many dishes with it so I had to dig deep into my brain parts to think of something to make. Then I saw this recipe and I was glad I did because of how easy and delicious it was. Ceviche is one of those dishes that I love, not really difficult to make, and yet I very rarely have it. To be the fact that food can be cooked in citric acid is so interesting. That and yeast, I cannot wrap my mind around yeast. Confession time, I might have bought martini glasses just for this dish. I have been making more drinks lately so they will go to good use though. Just more excuses for martinis.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Fad Food”. Cedar-planked salmon has been around forever so it is not necessarily a fad food so I was going to go for a low carb dish. I have had cedar-planked salmon before but never made it myself and after making it, I cannot imagine why. It is so easy to do and it makes it absolutely delicious. It does take some time but the majority of the time is just waiting for the salmon to cure and marinate.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Potatoes”. For a person who hates these boring themes and not the fondest of potatoes, I am really glad I made this. I found this theme boring because so many dishes have potatoes in them, I feel like they are like onions in that regard. Also, I was hesitant to make this because of the time commitment just for a baked potato but god damn it was so worth it.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “American Midwest”. While I usually do not go for chicken when cooking, I have always had a soft spot for wings, drumsticks, and thighs. Also, the fact that these were cooked “St. Louis” style intrigued me because I want to go to St. Louis just for the food. Hell, I have traveled for worse reasons before.
