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.

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”

Spaghetti with Lamb and Italian Sausage Meatballs

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Braised” and my second theme was “Movie or Book Inspired” so I went with Se7en when one of the victims was killed by constantly eating Spaghetti and Meatballs. I was very weary of making this due to the time required to make it… That being said, it was completely worth it and worth the wait. The meatballs were very tender, packed with flavour, and completely melted in your mouth. The sauce was pretty good too. Not the best I have had but I would have no problem eating it over and over. My girlfriend even said she would like me to make this again. No problem!

Sausage and Olive Pizza

This was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “pizza”. This was another theme where I was fairly disappointed. Not because I do not like pizza but because I like it too much that I have made it many times. One of my favourite things to do with my friends is to have pizza night where I will make the dough, people bring toppings, and we just gorge ourselves on pizza. I made this one basically just because I already had all of the ingredients

Breakfast Pizza

This was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “pizza”. This was another theme where I was fairly disappointed. Not because I do not like pizza but because I like it too much that I have made it many times. One of my favourite things to do with my friends is to have pizza night where I will make the dough, people bring toppings, and we just gorge ourselves on pizza. Then I remember seeing breakfast pizzas around the internet and thought I might as well try it.

Kangaroo, Italian Sausage, and Beef Pasta Bolognese

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “ground meat”. When I first saw the theme, I felt it was fairly boring but then I remembered I have always wanted to try and make bolognese. I am glad I did because this was amazing. It almost made me forget that I was cooking for 5 hours… almost. I will definitely be making this again but probably for a special occasion.

Rustic Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

I prepared this dish for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was rustic. I have to admit, I have no idea what rustic cooking means but this had the same name and was beyond delicious. Given the ingredients, it is not surprising…
