This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Filipino”. Honestly, I was not sure what to expect for this theme since the only Filipino food I knew of was Adobo and I have definitely made that before. Then I stumbled upon a few different pancit recipes and got really excited. This did not disappoint but I might have accidentally made way too much and have been eating it for days. No regrets, I could eat this forever and I am not even that big of a pork fan.
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 “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 “Spicy”. Kind of a boring theme because I am a spice head and most of my dishes have some sort of heat but I was really craving peanut sauce and I needed to use up some of the peanut butter I made so I stop eating it with a spoon. These bowls were really good and a good way to raid my freezer for chicken and pork that I have been meaning to use. Just looking at it makes me want to eat it again. Also, I hate chopping up peanuts when my food processor is in use. Can you tell?
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Presentation”. I definitely dreaded this theme since my plating is kind of crap so I decided to make something simple and tried to make it prettier. Enter these Jalapenos stage right. These can go well as a side dish or if you are like me, just scarf them down for no damn reason.
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.
