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 “Tailgate”. I used to go to tailgates all of the time until they got banned in my city for a few reasons. That being said, it has not stopped me from enjoying some delicious tailgating food.
It is really hard to screw up a meatball sub. Make meat balls add stuff. These were no different but I do have to say that they were much better after sitting in the sauce all night and the pictures were a bit better. Wish I took pictures before devouring it again.

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 “Middle East”. This one had to take some thinking because admittedly, I do not know a lot about middle eastern foods and the ones I do know, I have made before. Then I stumbled across this and everything about it sounded delicious. Poached eggs in spices and tomatoes, I am in. I overcooked the eggs a tad bit but other than that this was really good. I could see my self eating this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “One Pot”. I have never cooked with mussels before but have always really liked theme so I thought this would be a perfect time. Also, my friend made paella recently and it looked really good and I wanted to try my hand at it.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “spice blends”. So I decided to make my own Italian Seasoning from Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, Rosemary, Thyme, and Garlic Powder. You can use store bought Italian Seasoning or play with the spices a bit.

A while back I decided to try to make foods that I normally eat and improve on them. Black beans were the first thing I tried and the difference is amazing. I cook with black beans a lot so I used to just cook them in water and freeze the rest but the flavour on this is much better. You can either make enough for a meal or make large batch and freeze the rest.
