Stuffed Jalapenos

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.

Sloppy Joes

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Cafeteria Food”. As soon as I read this theme, I immediately thought of those really terrible sloppy joes from primary school which I am sure was just some sort of meat and ketchup. Well I decided to make it better and was very successful. Maybe it had a slight nostalgic effect but either way my SO and I devoured this.

Blackened Catfish

This dish was part of a meal that was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Southern”. I have a few friends from the South and I have been there a couple times so I had a few different options for dishes. The hard part was trying to make something that I have never had before. Then I realised that I have never had blackened catfish even though I have seen it on a bunch of menus. How could I not like this? Catfish and Cajun spices? Sign me up!

Kimchi Ramen

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.

Black and White Italian Cocktail

This drink was a drink made for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was black and white. There are plenty of drinks that incorporate the idea of half and half or cream on top of a dark drink but this one worked the best for me. Mostly, because I already have every thing on hand.

Also, yes, that is a TARDIS ice cube.

Black and White Pizza (Black Bean and Olive)

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Black and White”. At first I found this theme really interesting until I realised that I could not think of black and white food other than desserts. There are definitely foods that are black and foods that are white but it is hard to foods that have the two contrasts.

Curried Pumpkin, Red Lentil, and Chicken Soup

There was supposed to be this big storm coming in over the weekend so I immediately thought about movies, video games, soup, and Gluehwein. Well the storm was less than impressive but dammit I wanted some mulled wine, a Pabst onesie, and soup. I also, wanted this to be filling enough to take to work for lunches. This soup was just the thing, spicy, filling, and delicious. Continue reading “Curried Pumpkin, Red Lentil, and Chicken Soup”
