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 “Casseroles”. The theme for this week is way too large because there are so many things that can be classified as casseroles. My favourite being lasagna but I have made that way too many times so I decided to go more of classic that did not use cream of anything soup. This was definitely a good option due to how delicious it was. Also, with the colder weather coming in, I was craving comfort food.
I do have to say though, this is more filling than it looks and my eyes were much bigger than my stomach. But left overs for days!
This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Vacation Food”. There is this Italian restaurant near my parent’s house that I visit at least once or twice a year and someone at the table almost always orders this. Does it taste better? Probably but the flavours are very different. Given that, this is really damn good and I plan on making this many many times.
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.
